Storia del pilota

Colin Edwards entered his first motocross race at four, moving to road racing in 1991 where he went undefeated in every amateur event he entered and claiming numerous titles. Edwards turned professional at the start of 1992 and took the AMA 250 title over challenger Kenny Roberts Jr. In 1995 he was offered a factory position with Yamaha in World Superbike, claiming the crown in 2000 with Honda, finishing second to Troy Bayliss in 2001, then taking the title from Bayliss in a dramatic finish to 2002. Edwards stepped up to MotoGP™ in 2003 with the Aprilia team, achieving his first podium the next year with Telefonica Movistar Honda. 2005 saw the Texan race with factory Yamaha alongside Valentino Rossi for his best season finish of fourth, before losing a race victory at the last corner at Assen in 2006. He finished 2009 fifth overall before moving to the satellite Tech3 team, where he remained for two seasons. 2012 saw Edwards embark on a new adventure with the NGM Mobile Forward Racing team and its CRT project, which proved to be a tough year. He remained with the team for 2013, switching from Suter-BMW to FTR-Kawasaki machinery. An exciting new adventure comes for 2014, as Giovanni Cuzari’s outfit runs ‘Open’ FTR-Yamaha bikes. Edwards will be joined by Aleix Espargaro.
