Rins and Cecchinello; a very special bond

Before the extraordinary events in the Texan sunshine on Sunday I remembered the careers of Alex Rins and Lucio Cecchinello in separate ways. Without a doubt my number one memory of Lucio was when his LCR Honda team provided Cal Crutchlow with a MotoGP™ winning machine to become the first British rider to win a Premier class Grand Prix for 35 years. Cal went on to win again at Phillip Island the same year and in Argentina two years. Lucio’s LCR team celebrated the 100th podium in the Grand Prix paddock with MotoGP™ victory on Sunday. He is also the first rider to win two MotoGP™ races at the Texan circuit. It was Honda’s first MotoGP™ win since Marc Marquez brought them victory on the Repsol factory machine at that second Grand Prix at Misano back in October 2021.
