Cal Crutchlow has extended his HRC contract through 2020, the team revealed this morning.

The 32-year-old has been in MotoGP since 2011, when he made the move from the Superbike World Championship to join Tech 3.

Three seasons with Tech 3 came to an end at the conclusion of the 2013 campaign, which saw Crutchlow finish in his highest finish to date in the MotoGP standings, placing fifth.

Moving to Ducati for the 2014 season, a series of mechanical issues plagued his year with the team and the Coventry-native moved to Honda for 2015.

His 2016 season with Honda would give Crutchlow his first MotoGP race win, in the Czech Republic. Another victory in Australia later that year would leave Crutchlow placed for seventh in the overall standings, as two retirements in the last two races cost him what could have been a record finish.

The 2018 season has been a mixed affair for Crutchlow, despite winning the Argentine Grand Prix in the second week of the season. Sitting eighth with eight races to go, Crutchlow could yet push on to secure his highest ever MotoGP finish.
