Edwards feels the sting in Le Mans

Edwards feels the sting in Le Mans

Fiat Yamaha rider Colin Edwards is a rider who perhaps thought that he'd seen everything in his many years racing.

Fiat Yamaha rider Colin Edwards is a rider who perhaps thought that he'd seen everything in his many years racing. His experiences include winning a BMW, earning a World Championship and being set on fire, to name but a few. However, the ‘Texan Tornado' had an unlikely difficulty to contend with this afternoon in the second practice session at Le Mans when a bee found its way into his boot.

The Fiat Yamaha rider was stung three times by the flying insect, and could be seen shaking his leg on the home straight. With its removal Edwards picked up the pace, and showed no ill-effects in the aftermath as he rode to the fourth fastest time of the day.
