GP Week : Issue 200
Colin edwards will end his long career at the end of 2014. The two-time superbike World Champion announced in his home state of Texas that he would quit the sport following the final race of the season in spain. “This year we started testing and I didn’t really see the improvement that I wanted to see and obviously the changing of the riding style,” he said, “hell I’m 40-years-old and trying to change my riding style to make this bike work wasn’t really working. “As soon as you get into the intense moments you go back to your instincts and my instincts are to ride the bike differently. That, and my kids and my wife. We’ve had a few conversations and there are some things that I miss out on. They are getting into baseball, gymnastics and school and I need to be home a lot more.” In 11 MotoGP seasons, edwards has never won a MotoGP event. His best chance was at Assen in 2006 when, leading Nicky Hayden, he ran off the track at the final chicane. His best finish in the championship was fifth in 2004 on a Gresini Honda and again in 2009 with Tech 3 Yamaha. EDWARDS NAMES THE DATE MOTOGP >>> nEWs 16 GPWEEK.com // 16 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS:
