Positive test for Edwards in Valencia

Positive test for Edwards in Valencia

The Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider concluded the two days satisfied with the start of his preparations for the 2011 MotoGP campaign.

On day two of the Official MotoGP Test at Valencia, Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider Colin Edwards carried out more development work on a revised chassis and engine package, the 36 year-old confirming the potential of the 2011 Yamaha YZR-M1 machine in a short 34-lap run. He was also able to further assess the performance of new Bridgestone rear tyres and set a best time of 1’33.325 to finish 12th on the timesheet.

Colin Edwards:

“I feel pretty tired now after six days of riding but this test has been very positive and we have gained a lot of good information about next year's bike. I was able to confirm a few things we found out yesterday and the 2011 bike has a lot of potential. The chassis and engine are a definite step forward and we can look forward to next year with a lot of optimism. I want to thank my Monster Yamaha Tech 3 crew for their fantastic effort and support again this year. I'm now looking forward to the winter break, spending a bit of time relaxing before training hard and getting ready for 2011 when we get back on the bike at Sepang in early February.”
