BIOGRAPHY

Born on October 29, 1985 in Coventry (UK), Crutchlow was a relative latecomer to motorcycle racing by modern standards, focusing on football in his early years until a knee injury prompted him to follow in his father’s footsteps by turning his attention to bikes in 1996. His progress as a youth was rapid, as he was crowned UK Junior Challenge Champion just three years later. Crutchlow moved on to manufacturer cup racing, earning the Aprilia RS 125 Challenge title in 2001 and finishing runner up in the Yamaha R6 Cup in 2003. The next year saw him enter the British Supersport Championship aboard a Honda, beginning a three-year tint that culminated in winning the 2006 national championship. The following year Cal moved up to British Superbike with Rizla Suzuki finishing 9th overall. For 2008, Cal switched back to Honda machinery with the HM Plant squad, where his performance immediately took a step forward, and thanks in part to a pair of victories, he finished the year third in the standings. In 2009 the Briton earned the Supersport World Title with Yamaha and an immediate promotion to the 2010 Superbike World Championship. He arrived in MotoGP in 2011 achieving the Rookie of the Year with Monster Yamaha Tech 3 squad. After several pole positions and first podiums Cal left Yamaha for Ducati in 2014. Switching to LCR Honda the year after, Crutchlow’s greatest glory came in 2016 as he took victory in the wet in Brno – the first British winner for 35 years – and then followed it by another win at Phillip Island. Top Independent Team rider in 2016 and a podium finisher once again in 2017, Crutchlow remains with the LCR Honda Team this season for the fourth year running.
