Colin Edwards set for Honda return in 2004

Colin Edwards will return to Honda for the 2004 season after signing a deal with Team Gresini Racing to ride alongside Sete Gibernau under the Telefónica MoviStar colours. The 29 year old Texan, won two World Superbike titles with the Japanese factory in 2000 and 2002, has spent his debut MotoGP season struggling at the back of the field on the Aprilia RS3 but is sure to be a major championship contender on the Honda RC211V which has won the title for the past two seasons at the hands of Valentino Rossi.

Manager Fausto Gresini expressed his satisfaction at the deal: "I can say that I am at the head of a winning team – two riders like Sete and Colin are reason to have high hopes and expectations of top results. Looking forward to next season I think we have the potential to go for victories. I am a great admirer of Edwards – he is a rider who combines talent with determination."
