Yeah, it's totally wrong that Colin keeps signing the contracts they put in front of him.......... 52 was way better....and how many times has 35 schooled him???

I don't care how old he is. Colin can still ride with the young guys and is one of the most personable guys in MotoGP. Tech Trois and his other sponsors know what they are doing - Colin absolutely deserves his ride. I can't name another rider I'd rather have representing my product. And he sure seems like a real badass coming back after just a week.

I think Dorna need to make a new rule, For both Colin and Pedrosa and any other injured rider...

(1) If any team's contracted rider (factory or satellite) is unable to participate through injury or illness, then the machines Manufacturer (Honda, Yamaha etc) shall be required to provide a replacement rider from their test staff and an additional engine shall be allotted for the sole use of that replacement rider so the injured rider's engine allocation is not affected.

Problem solved....

Shows just how much heart Edwards has as a rider. Not only did he want to race 2 days after his off, he WILL be riding 1 week afterwards.

This doesn't speak well for Pedrosa who will still not be taking his place on the grid this weekend. This is a factory rider in the prime of his career (and will be for some time) who COULD be fighting for the championship this year but has essentially given up on it by not trying to rejoin the field as soon as he can.

Edwards = Man......Pedrosa = Boy
