Cal Crutchlow's new Spidi glove ready for Qatar GP

Cal Crutchlow lost the tip of left little finger during the final evening of pre-season testing after his hand got trapped under the handlebars of his M1.
The English rider is fortunately able to joke about on Twitter “Going to dinner with team! Visited shopping center for a while, not done much all day.

Saw a manerkin & tried to get finger off but couldn’t…” but with just a couple of days between the test and the official practice that starts tonight, Crutchlow had to get Spidi do a rush job to create a special glove to accomodate his injured finger.

Spidi came up with this solution after the Yamaha Tech3 rider sent them photos of what’s left of his finger and the bandages wrapping the injury.
