Paddock Press: Birt on Edwards´ 2008 season

Paddock Press: Birt on Edwards´ 2008 season

The Motorcycle News view on Colin Edwards´ latest MotoGP campaign.

Colin Edwards´ first year onboard the satellite Yamaha M1 comes under scrutiny in today´s Paddock Press, with Motorcycle News journalist Matthew Birt the man picking apart the `Texas Tornado´s 2008.

Although Birt notes the dip in form suffered by the American at the midway point of the year, special praise was in order for his performances in the opening races of the season.

`Colin was in the form of his life; switching from the factory Yamaha team to the satellite Tech3 Yamaha really seemed to galvanize his fortunes,´ says Birt in the accompanying video.

`I think that looking back at the first part of the season, he was riding better than he´d ever done and for sure he still has a big part to play in the future of Yamaha.´
