Edwards improves time on extra day at Mugello

Colin Edwards today concluded his additional day of testing at Mugello after spending the whole day lapping alone. Having decided that he was not happy with his adaptation to the Italian circuit after the scheduled two days of testing alongside two of the satellite Honda teams, the Texan was able to bring his times down considerably as team-mate Noriyuki Haga packed his bag and left for Japan.

The World Superbike Champion, who had never previously ridden at the circuit whilst Haga has already completed one full season in the MotoGP World Championship, clocked up a massive 70 laps and became consistently faster throughout the day, setting a best time of 1:52.50. The Alice Aprilia Racing team also made the most of the extra day to test different set-up solutions and a whole stack of Michelin tyres.
