What a top result for a top bloke. Just shows that being as smooth as silk on a bike can get you results. Would also like to think that Tech3 are a real team rather than one that has 2 or 3 bikes where the riders and mechanics are always in-fighting.
Let's hope there's more when both Colin and Cal are fully fit again!

I have always been a Edwards fan but sometimes so dissapointed with his rides and excuses, but this is ride he well and truley deserves definitely a HERO, who knows what he could of done without injury? I think Edwards sometimes underates his ability and just rides to where he thinks he should finish. Edwards we know your an awesome rider and bloke just start showing results like this from now on and we'll continue rootin' for ya!

Edwards deserves a podium, for so long now he's given-up his Friday to test/evaluate parts or drag a team mate around. Well done that man! Only Yamaha rider to make it to the flag.....

Stoner has been kidnapped, Lorenzo is thinking very, very dark and self harm thoughts, Dovi is a couch potato. It's the work of Valentino Melandri!!! It's the only way he can do some thing about his inability to ride the ducati.

All this "what ifs" are just so sad to read. Yes Rossi and Stoner hate/fan boys have their say, but how can anyone not feel pleased that such a genuine guy got on the podium - that and the fact that he broke his collarbone a week ago! I have nothing but respect and admiration for Edwards, he's damn fast and is definitely a charcter in the paddock (sorely lacking these days) with true grit. Which cannot be said of many of the fanboys on this site! Well done Colin, and may there be more to come. Oh for that first win...!!
