some of the rules for 2010+ seem retarded. A rookie can only be on a non-factory team? No variable valve timing? no electric dampers? WTF!? This is supposed to be a prototype class!

Pedrosa - injured... (never a photo person either)...

Nicky Hayden - bitter...

Sete - already worried about rossi and eyeing him...

DeAngelis- just glad to be there...

Edwards - probably about to pass a smart comment about Nicky...

ROFL had who ever had to tell Edwards and Toseland they have to stand next to each other.

I really miss seeing Biaggi, Sete, Tamada and Rossi sitting next to each other on the front rows... those were some good battles. Every rain saw Sete win, every dry saw Rossi/Biaggi win...

Colin Edwards aka Texas Tornado.

Hangs out in Conroe, TX during the off season, and in London, U.K during the season (training).


Rode as Valentino Rossi's wingman for over 4 years - did a great job at it too!

so, question. i know a little about Edwards history and being from Houston and everything, but what is with the Marine Corps hat? Never heard or read anything about him having served.......I know the Marine Corps sponsors NASCAR and a few other things........is he sponsored by them or is he just showing support by wearing the hat? Just curious

I don't think the USMC is sponsoring anyone in road racing, yet.

But holy if they do. I need to submit some papers for sponsorship. I gave them 4+ years......they can give me some $$$$ to go racing.
