Colin Edwards: ‘I never considered retirement’

Colin Edwards reckons retiring from MotoGP was never an option he considered after a dismal 2012 on the struggling Suter-BMW CRT project.

Financial.

He probably wouldn't be compensated as well in Supers. Can't argue with that, certainly not in his dotage..

No offense but...

... what the f*** are you thinking Edwards? Get on a Superbike man, CRT is just utter s***. No one cares about that "B" class, you get no attention in televised races (ok, 5 seconds per race) and the bikes are abominations. Best, You're biggest fan

He is going back to WSB in 2015 the same time as Rossi but will they be in the same team?
