Crutchlow claims Czech Grand Prix for maiden Moto GP win


BRNO‭, ‬Czech Republic‭ (‬AP‭) - ‬Cal Crutchlow won the Czech Grand Prix on Sunday for his maiden MotoGP triumph to become the first British rider to claim a race in the premium category in 35‭ ‬years‭.‬

The rider with the independent LCR Honda team dealt best with the wet track that was slowly drying out after rain earlier in the‭ ‬day to cover 22‭ ‬laps of the 5.403-kilometer‭ (‬3.357-mile‭) ‬Brno circuit in 47‭ ‬minutes and 44.290‭ ‬seconds‭.‬

“I’m really‭, ‬really pleased for my team‭,‬”‭ ‬Crutchlow said‭. ‬“We worked hard for this‭.‬”

After starting from 10th position on the grid‭, ‬Crutchlow gradually moved ahead to take the lead with seven laps to go‭. ‬Unlike most riders who started on soft tyres‭, ‬Crutchlow opted for hard ones and that strategy paid off‭.‬

“I took the gamble‭,‬”‭ ‬he said‭. ‬“We did the best job we could today‭.‬”
