Come on nibs, are you incapable of being pleased for someone else, especially when its the first time in so long that a British rider has been on the podium? Very negative which I suppose says more about your general outlook than your love of the sport!
Just got round to watching the Moto2 / Moto3 races.Why isn't there a report on those races on the BBC MotoGP site?I emailed a month or so ago about how the World Results page had stalled back in April, nothing since then, and now at least they are putting the results up.We have British riders in both those categories, and Bradley Smith (at least - is moving to MotoGP in 2013.Report pls!
I find it pretty lame that a small amount of people are being so negative about a result for a rider whos come from a basic feeder series in the Virgin R6 cup to rubbing shoulders, regularly racing hard against the greatest riders on the planet. Congrats Cal, for not only your podium, but being a huge influence on the young future stars who are going against the grain to follow in your footsteps
Well done Cal. At last podium in Elite class. Its just the beginning. But hopefully you will not endup like Ben Spies. He was awesome on Tech3 and failed on Factory Yamaha.

#15 BobIt appears that the BBC are using the Red Button as an excuse to cease coverage of an event halfway through----Don't just whinge about it. Insist that the BBC puts it's Red Button coverage on iPlayer, like they do with the F1 Forum, for example.It would be nice to have at least the whole Qualifying Sessions on iPlayer as well. If you don't ask for it, you won't get it. So ask!
Don't feed the troll people, those sort of posts are best ignored. Anyway, a great result for Calvin and for British motorcycle racing. I was out yesterday, so I missed the Beeb coverage, but recorded Eurosport which, of course, showed the podium ceremony, soIi got to see CC's beaming mush!! Really hope that Jonny Rea can put on a show when he slings his leg over the Honda.
Well done Cal. Must admit, when he got the WSS ride I did wonder, but he won the series and has showed steely determination since then to move up the pecking order in MotoGP. Don't agree with any silly conspiracy theories whether he deserves a ride and why he got it. He's a world champion, and over 2 seasons has proven worthy of his current ride.
Well done Cal, great performance!
Nibs you sound very bitter, you are just the same on the f1 blogs. I have never heard you say a positive thing about anyone. Maybe you should look at your own life before commenting on others.
When Cal gets a result once in a blue moon mr Parish & the rest come out of their hole lobbying on how he deserves a top ride, all the other times they change the subject. Second to Edwards last year and Dovi this one.The only times he beat Dovi were first 2 gps when he was new in the team, GB when his bike failed and maybe from now on when we know who may be getting the good parts in Tech 3..
When Cal gets 4 more podiums this season, when he gets a win, and when he starts matching teammates on a regular basis, maybe we can talk of him being as good as someone else.Crutchlow Smith & Rea have hardly ever excelled in any of the international series they have competed and there are a dozen others who have, so why on earth are they getting rides in top teams? Well we all know why..
Nice one Cal, well deserved, and that'll be the first of many podiums. Glad you got your hair cut, too!And what a tense last few laps by Dani and Jorge? I thought Jorge timed that strong pass into the lead just right, but what a response from Dani!But we do need far more bikes up right at the front, fighting for first place, as in M2 and M3, because those races are becoming the ones to watch
I found it refreshing that Lorenzo was able to give a factual report of the last lap and, unlike Stoner, NO LAME EXCUSES!
Lets be honest Moto GP is becoming boring and BSB & WSBK is far more exciting. Moto GP need to look at Superpole in WSB and BSB shoot out. Moto GP is fast becoming the snoozefest that F1 is.
Really great to see Cal on the podium at last!! I may be blonde but I was a tad confused after reading the 'Grand Prix results'. Mini Dani won the race at 42:51.57 but looking at the times I thought that Rossi should have won, with his time of 42:26.084????? Sorry BBC!
blimey, 12 years...well done lad
Congrats to Cal, well deserved podium. I think he is capable of a few more before the end of the season.
