Edwards makes Aprilia debut with a fall in Jerez

Colin Edwards and Noriyuki Haga today completed the first of three days testing at the Spanish circuit of Jerez riding the Aprilia RS Cube. For Edwards it was the first time he had ridden the four-stroke MotoGP machine, whilst Haga had already tested at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia.

The American spent the day adjusting the position of the motorcycle to suit his tall frame and getting to know the crew of mechanics with whom he will work throughout the 2003 season. Edwards crashed on the first day without injury and he will be fit to test on tuesday. Haga, meanwhile, tested some set-up changes based on data gathered at Valencia. Today was also the first day of testing for Michelin with the Aprilia MotoGP project, with the Noale factory machine using the French tyres for the first time.
