Edwards motivated for Laguna after German mishap

Edwards motivated for Laguna after German mishap

Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider fully focused on strong home result after disappointment of non-finish at Sachsenring.

A difficult weekend for Colin Edwards at the eni Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland ended in disappointing fashion on Sunday.

Despite numerous changes to the set-up of his Monster Yamaha YZR-M1 machine throughout the weekend, Edwards was unable to discover a setting that allowed him to push at the fast pace he is capable of.

And his hopes of maintaining his proud record of scoring points in every race this season were ended when he crashed out of 16th position shortly before the first race was red flagged.

“I got pushed around a bit at the start and lost a bit of time and I was just pushing because what I would lose on acceleration I would try and catch it all up on the brakes. It was my mistake. I ran into the last corner wide and was probably a metre off line and when I tried to pull it back I lost the front. This wasn't the result I wanted going into my home race next week at Laguna Seca but I'm more motivated than ever to get back on track and recover from a pretty difficult period in the season for me. I love Laguna and the atmosphere created by the fans and rest assured I'll be aiming to get myself much closer to the front where I know I belong in front of my home crowd.”
