It was an awe-striking moment at the Brno Grand Prix today as Cal Crutchlow scored his maiden victory in MotoGP,
while also becoming the first British rider to take the pole position after 35 years. The CWM LCR Honda rider showcased
an inspiring choice of tyres in the rain-soaked track, which allowed him to surge at the top ahead of champions
Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez.
The Brno GP was drenched in rains before the start of the race, which in turn ensured that all teams started on wet
rubber. However, Crutchlow, who started tenth on the grid, opted for hard tyres at the front and rear, which turned
out to be a game changer for the 30-year-old rider. The move helped the Brit beat Rossi with a lead of over 7 seconds,
while Marquez had to settle for the third place.
