Cal Crutchlow, Lucy and Shaina 2015





Motogp  is not only limited to adult who like to ride a bike, but also influence so much to the little girl Shaina who will reach 10 years old on December 8th. She is enthusiast with this sport since she was very young. And the one she so adore is the British rider Cal Crutchlow. 

Shaina herself first time get in touch with Cal Crutchlow about 3 years ago  and she got the lucky to able to had a direct conversation with Crutchlow and also with Lucy (At the time is girl friend of him). And due Crutchlow so impressed with the braveness of Shaina so he gave his racing gloves to her, She could not believe that moment and wore the glove for the rest of that day. When the light of paddock were already on and she still walking around with her hands in the air, wearing these big motorcycle gloves. Really unforgettable moment for the first time met with her idol.

But the happiness for her not only stop at that moment, this year she got a chance to meet again with Cal Crutchlow. When she asked him if he could give her an interview because at her school she just finish the lesson ‘how to doing interview’ a The elementary school girl got very excited, prepared like a professional and wrote down her questions on her tablet, that she will not forget any of them. 
nd she want to practice that, the British agreed in very friendly way.

So the big moment came: Cal´s wife Lucy asked Shaina to come into Cal´s room behind the pit garage at the Sepang circuit. She entered, and Cal gave her a warm welcome. They sat down and Shaina got a one-to-one interview, not much ordinary people get the very precocious moment like this.

Shaina Salvia A.S.:
(With serious face and little nervous she started to ask) Before you came to MotoGP, you were riding World Superbike, while most other riders from MotoGP go to World Superbike before they retire. Do you have any plan to go back to World Superbike in the future?

Cal Crutchlow:
(The voice so deep and calm) I don’t have a plan to go back to World Superbike again in the future. But only because I ride now in MotoGP and I think when I will finish my career, I will finish it in MotoGP. But this does not mean I would not be interested to go to World Superbike, but I don’t think I´m going to ride there again. I think in the end I will finish my career here but I don’t know when. Maybe in one year, maybe in ten years. As soon as I stop to love racing bikes I can go home and love Lucy (his wife) more (laughs)

Shaina Salvia A.S.:
You ride the Honda almost one year, are you happy with your riding?

Cal Crutchlow:
I’m happy and not happy, both.  I’m happy because the first half of the year was ok, and in the last few races it got a little better.  We had some bad races and some bad luck, so the championship position is not really good, but I think I´m still fast enough. With the Honda it is really difficult to learn the bike. So next year maybe I am a lot faster again.

Shaina Salvia A.S.:
You crashed with your team mate Jack Miller in Silverstone. How you can smile again with him, as sometimes in my school, if my friends disappoint me, it’s difficult for me to smile with them again (Shaina asks very shy but in curious way).

Cal Crutchlow:
 (Laughs) You have to be a good person and jack is not a bad person. He didn’t mean to make a mistake, he didn’t mean to do it on purpose. He didn’t want to crash and he didn’t want to hit me either.  So we both crashed and I said I´m really sorry for the crash. And he said he is really sorry to hit me. I said it’s ok, because I was angry with him for one minute and then calmed down. It is ok, because I have crashed into people before as well. And if I do it again and I’m still angry with Jack, they might be angry with me. You need to have forgiveness and I forgive him. But if he does it again, there is big trouble! No I’m only joking (laughs loud).

Shaina Salvia A.S.:
How did you get idea to choose 35 as your racing number?

Cal Crutchlow:
Because I had the number 5 before, in the first 3 years racing. Then I couldn’t have the 5 anymore, so I put the 3 ahead. But it’s really good, because my favorite number is 5 and Lucy´s is 3. So it works perfect (looks lovely to his wife and smiles).

Shaina Salvia A.S.:
Is it easy to be a rider (looking to CC with an amazed face)?

Cal Crutchlow:
I think it’s easy sometimes, but people think it’s a lot easier than it is. We have to work hard. I think we have a job that we all love and we are very privileged. It’s a really special job to have, to be the rider. But it’s also difficult at times, because you´re never at home, you´re always travelling. And when we travel the world we don’t see so much. We don´t go to visit places, because we need to go to the circuit, the hotel and the airport, but we don´t get to see so much of the world. So it´s honestly a really tough job, but it´s job we love and we´ll never change. I think all riders feel the same. (in grateful voice)

Shaina Salvia A.S. :
In Malaysia your bike had a different color. Will this remain for the future, or was this just for Malaysia?

Cal Crutchlow:
It was just for Malaysia. But I hope it will remain, because it looks really good.

Shaina Salvia A.S. :
What is your target in every race?

Cal Crutchlow:
To win (laughs with serious face). Always the target is to win, but we all know is very difficult for me to win. Maybe I will be 10th, maybe I will be 5th. But we always have to aim to win.

Shaina Salvia A.S. :
Thank you for the interview.

Cal Crutchlow:
You´re very welcome.

Shaina had the gloves in her bag, she got from him 3 years ago. “Could you sign them for me, please?” she asked. 
Cal took a pen and said: “Gloves are really difficult to sign, as they have so many edges.” But he found a spot on the palm that was wide enough for his much desired signature and his #35.  “I still remember when I gave them to you. Great you still have them.” Then he asked: “Do you want a photo with the bike?” He invited her into the garage, and he posed with her in front of the Honda RC 213 V. 
Once again, she got another experience to remember for life. “Thank you very much, Cal Crutchlow. You´re my hero!”



Sometimes life is about if you are brave enough to have a dream, because every little dream we have can be a motivation for us to keep working and make it come true. And you need to make sure that your dreams are inspiring for others.

We really appreciate the warm heart of Cal Crutchlow. In his busy time he was so kind to take some minutes for the little girl and he was very wise and patient. Also thanks to his wife Lucy who is always humble to Shaina even though she is already the 1st lady of the famous British rider.
