When Fiat Yamaha rider Colin Edwards finished second in the Nickel & Dime British Grand Prix at Donington Park on Sunday it equalled his best ever MotoGP result and gave him his second podium of the season, courtesy of a battling performance from pole position.

Edwards got a fantastic start and held the lead briefly before Dani Pedrosa found his way past the Texan on the first lap - but the 33 year old Yamaha rider stayed on the Spaniard's tail and was soon able to take the lead again.

Although he stayed in front for several laps, when the rain stopped and a dry-line appeared, Edwards began to struggle with grip and Casey Stoner came through to take victory – eventually by more than 11 seconds.

However, all things considered it was a good weekend for the Texas Tornado who later told motogp.com: "After Casey went by I was hanging on for dear life, like grabbing at a rope and thinking 'come on, bring me!'. But it didn't work out that way and hat's off to Casey, he rode an incredible race you know. I haven't had a lot of chances to ride with him this year but he's doing a great job."
