Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda) added another impressive haul of points to his 2017 tally in the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas, coming home in P4 after a comeback from ninth on the grid following a difficult qualifying and crossing the line top Independent Team rider once again.
Cal Crutchlow, P4: “It was a good race, I felt confident throughout and my team did a fantastic job all weekend. I’m a little disappointed not to get the podium because we were very close, but I took too long to pass Johann Zarco and after that I lost a little bit of time running off the track. But I felt comfortable during the race and physically strong, and I was still able to push towards the end. I would have liked another podium, but a third in Argentina and fourth here in Texas is good from the last two flyaway races. Hopefully we can carry this momentum into the first European round in Jerez.”
