Spies and Edwards enjoy some team bonding!

Spies and Edwards enjoy some team bonding!

The Monster Yamaha Tech 3 riders star in a special video, in which they hit the US highway on a road trip in an attempt to get to know one another better before their first season together…

The dynamic of the Monster Yamaha Tech3 team this season will be an all-American one with rookie Ben Spies joining Colin Edwards for the 2010 campaign. In an attempt to cement their working relationship, the two Texans set off on a road trip and you can see the result in the attached video.

“It was fun,” said Spies of the experience of making the humorous short film. “I’m definitely not the loudest personality in the paddock, and I have a little trouble getting into the acting. Colin, on the other hand, I think he needs to go into acting when he’s done racing, because he’s definitely into it and pretty good at it! We went out there and crammed it all into a day and had one little incident that was pretty funny. We got to spend some time and have some good laughs.”

Edwards added: “We had an absolute ball with it. None of us knew what was going on until we showed up and they said: ‘OK, Colin, you’re the over-the-top, annoying, loud guy’. I was like: ‘OK, I’ll give it my best!’. It turned out all right. We had a good time with it.”
