Edwards continues Yamaha rebuild in Spain

Edwards continues Yamaha rebuild in Spain

Undertaking his second test as part of the Tech 3 Yamaha Satellite team, Colin Edwards continued his complete overhaul of settings on the M1 after starting from scratch again at Malaysia.

Undertaking his second test as part of the Tech 3 Yamaha Satellite team, Colin Edwards continued his complete overhaul of settings on the M1 after starting from scratch again at Malaysia.

Fourth fastest at Jerez yesterday, the Texan was concentrating his work on adjusting the bike to his liking after a disappointing conclusion to the 2007 season. Normally one of the key testers of Michelin tyres, Edwards saved that particular task for later on in the three day visit to Southern Spain.

"We played around with the chassis a bit, with more or less the same bike that we had in Malaysia. We might have made it slower, but we'll be back tomorrow and we'll go from there," commented the veteran after a positive day of testing.

"I know that Michelin have better tyres than what they gave me today, and that is pretty exciting. Today was just a case of giving me a run of the mill front tyre to do some laps, and it was great."
