The Vox Senate interview: Cal Cunningham is running down the middle to win in North Carolina

  The Vox Senate interview: Cal Cunningham is running down the middle to win in North Carolina The Democrat is still angry that Republican Sen. Thom Tillis blocked Medicaid expansion in North Carolina.Cunningham, a former state lawmaker and military prosecutor, is positioning himself as a moderate in step with a moderate North Carolina. He is holding off on aggressively attacking President Trump and instead staying “laser-focused” on Tillis, the incumbent’s record on health care, and what he describes as Tillis’s cowardice in the face of partisan pressure.

Anyway, he spent Thursday night with an ice pack on his ankle: "I know what to do, because I've been doing this on my other ankle for two months. So I know the tricks. Yes, the ankle is still swollen and completely black, but it's gotten better. And I'm not in much pain. "

The LCR pilot visited the plastic surgeon

There is one problem, however: His own boot no longer fits him because of the swelling. "I'll have to borrow someone else's boot because mine isn't big enough. Let's see which number is on the end, maybe 42 from Rins, 20 from Quartararo ... I could charge advertising fees."

When it comes to the arm, too, the Brit sees progress compared to Misano. "I didn't want to drive there and the doctors didn't want me to drive either, after my arm got bigger and bigger," says Crutchlow, looking back. "Lucio (Cecchinello, team boss; editor's note) was the only one who wanted me to drive. But the reality is: It's not his arm and it's not really his decision."

"It took time to recover because the arm just wouldn't heal. In fact, it didn't really get any better at home. The wound continued to tear, so I went to a surgeon who referred me to a plastic surgeon. He sewed it last Friday and now the arm is amazing. "

Injured particularly motivated? Crutchlow hopes

The wound is now closed and clean. Of course, he doesn't yet know what it will be like when he's on the motorcycle. "But at least my arm is working again and has not become infected. That is the most important thing," says the Briton, relieved.

He is aware that it is better to be 100 percent fit, especially in order to tame the Honda. But when that was the last time in his case, Crutchlow can't even remember. Instead, he draws hope from the past when he was able to achieve strong results despite injuries.

"Last year I had an ankle injury and was immediately on the podium in Qatar. Then I broke my shin while cycling and made it onto the podium shortly afterwards at the Sachsenring. Maybe it was because I had a gentler driving style or simply was just angry ... "speculates the LCR-Honda driver.

Aprilia place for 2021 remains the declared goal

As a sign to stop better, he doesn't see his series of injuries: "I don't believe in this crap. I believe in hard work and dedication. Anyone who tells me your body is signaling you that you should stop, I tell him I don't see it that way at all. Maybe luck hasn't been on my side lately, but that can change again. It comes as it comes. "

"If I can continue to be competitive, I'll be. If I get the job I want next year, I'll have it. And if not, then not. That's life," continues Crutchlow. By the job he means: driving for Aprilia.

"It's not a secret. I think it would be worthwhile for both sides. It would be something different from what I'm doing now - completely different. A new start. And whenever I come to a new team, I support myself usually good, "he advertises for himself. But Aprilia wants to wait for the verdict in the Andrea Iannone trial.

Crutchlow respects that: "It's your choice." At the same time, however, he emphasizes that this fact does not change his interests. "I see great potential in the bike, the team has done a good job over the last few years. I think I could help make the package even faster - if you let me."
