MotoGP Catalunya: Crutchlow 'back to the drawing board' for 2020 RCV setup

Britain's Cal Crutchlow said he wasn't in too much pain with his arm and ankle injuries during the opening day of MotoGP practice at Catalunya but will have to go back to the drawing board for a setup with the 2020 RCV.

Crutchlow was hoping the 2019 setting he used to great success would work with this year's bike but that proved not to be the case. But the LCR Honda man was not too far away, finishing in 13th overall and less than a second off the pace.

“I tried the setting we had for the race here last year when I was really competitive in the middle and the end of the race. But today that didn’t work with the 2020 Honda and we have to go back to the drawing board a little bit to improve my feeling with the bike," said Crutchlow.


"We had some instability with the bike, but a lot of this was due to the wind today as it was really, really high. But we worked in a good way and it was nice to be back in the garage with the boys. I felt like I was competitive, I wasn’t fast enough, but I was competitive.

"I still have some pain with my arm, the ankle felt ok, but my tendon in the arm is causing me some bother and the arm is very swollen again, so we’ll have to do the best treatment we can so we can ride well tomorrow.”
