Colin Edwards out of British Grand Prix

Colin Edwards will miss next weekend’s British Grand Prix at Silverstone after he broke his right collarbone in a heavy crash during practice at the Catalunya track in Spain earlier today. The experienced American fell heavily at Turn 5 just minutes after the field had switched to slick tyres after the Montmelo track dried rapidly following an earlier heavy downpour in...

Gutted for Colin, could well be the end of an era, age being a factor but also the balance of power shifting away from yam(lost it's kudos this year). It's hard enough on last years wc bike but on the bike that's a poor second and he'll wonder if it's still worth the effort . Get fit soon Colin will also be disappointed to miss you if it is your last at Silverstone. I'd put MM on it and money on a half decent finish...

Colin...................

What a shame Colins out. I was really looking forward to him finishing 6th again for the 1000th time. Bloody good bloke and always worth a listen but the winter world champ has never really been able to cut it at the top level.

Totally agree with the McCoy shout, what a treat that would be. Also If it were poss, another long time Yamaha legend........................................Nitro Nori, not that I'm biased at all!!

Hugely dissapointed and gutted.

to see Colin injured personally I think Tech 3 should give Eugene Laverty the Tech 3 ride.

Quote from Nori Fan.... Borrocks!

Why does everyone keep touting WSBK contracted riders? WSBK is at Misano next weekend therefore cannot happen. But since we are all pissing into the ocean..... Melandri or Laverty???? Herve' would probably jump at Marco but then if it was me...... I could be persuaded to give Eugene the shot as he is still in career progression not regression. ***** Back to reality...... !!! What is Bayliss doing next weekend? Anybody know?
