Cal Crutchlow is a British professional motorcycle road racer, who currently competes in the MotoGP World Championship for CWM LCR Honda. In early 2017, the RAC awarded Crutchlow the Torrens Trophy, an accolade made in recognition of "outstanding contribution to motorcycling in the United Kingdom". When making the award, the RAC spokesperson cited "the first Brit to win a premier class race since Barry Sheene in 1981".
He started his career as a superbike rider. He was the 2006 British Supersport Championship champion and the 2009 Supersport World Championship winner with Yamaha. He also won races in the British Superbike Championship – finishing 3rd in 2008 – and in the Superbike World Championship, finishing 5th in 2010.
Since 2011, Crutchlow competed in the MotoGP World Championship. He joined the Tech 3 Yamaha satellite team, achieving six podium finishes over three seasons, between 2011 and 2013. In 2014, Crutchlow joined the factory Ducati team on a two-year contract. After just one season with the team – with one podium finish, and finishing thirteenth in the riders' championship – Crutchlow terminated his contract to join CWM LCR Honda for the 2015 season, riding a factory Honda.
