I don't dislike Cal, but surely there's other riders out there a bit more eager/younger, or is he just considered a safe pair of hands?

There's very few riders available. Cal knows the bike well and still quick.

No brainer.

He's the test rider isn't he? Hence like Bradl, first choice

ah!

I'd assumed that because I'd not seen him in another classes that he'd disappeared to blow all his money on drugs and hookers, I guess it makes sense if he's the Yamaha test rider.

Cal has always been quick and great to watch. Unfortunately it’s not normally for the whole race. :(
