I think the proper terminology for the Tech 3 riders at this stage and going forward is...cruise control.

And for them that should suffice plenty because some teams...cough, cough factory Ducati...haven't even got that working yet.

" I was lapping at the same pace that Dani Pedrosa did on his way to winning the race in 2010. "

Yes that all well and good BUT!!!!! That was then, this is now, the goalposts have moved slightly...

Still, nextyear the playing field will be evened-out a bit to start with.

no matter what some say, this is the top satellite team and edwards a top motogp rider. crutchlow, not so much, but he is a rookie. he will get 1 more year to prove something and then after that, well... he will probably go the way of one james toseland.

if you are an incoming motogp rider this is where you want to start. edwards and spies have made it work. toseland couldn't and i have my doubts that crutchlow can. we shall see. i love it when they finish in front of the factory guys though.

MOMENTUM ??? EH ??
Definition = "Impetus of a physical object in motion".
So they will keep moving then, unless they end up in the gravel. and both riders whoever they are next year will be on a massive learning curve when they get the new 1000. which will be well after the factory team. MOMENTUM will then stop again. P@ssing into the wind springs to mind !!!

@ go fast .what utter twaddle you spout,edwards made it work,well i think you better tell me boy what u mean! im stuck here,edwards made what work,hes had factory hondas, works fiat yamahas, tech 3 yamahas,years and years in gps and he aint won jackschit,explain to me what worked !from where im sittin he failed miserably,won nothing,and never looked like winning anything ever,then you yankee fan boys come in and start yakkin about young brits whom havent got little time on the bikes to learn the craft,or should not get a chance ,ya tossas,let me spell it out for ya, CAPTAIN AMERICA EDWARDS IS THE BIGGEST FAILURE IN GPS AND YOU THINK THATS BRILLIANT,

The greatest failure in modern GP history is "Great" Britain - over 30 years without a win in the premier class!!!! To a nation that loves motorcycle racing it really is quite pathetic.

With all the extra time from not having to concern yourself with dental hygiene you would think at least one of them would luck himself into a win but alas we are forced into watching their best get excited about an 11th place!!??!!

And now next year Dorna will force another token Brit down our throats simply so they can have someone to cheer on at the back of the grid. I say bring JT back, even though he lacks race craft he can still entertain us with a song. :o

Edwards might not have won a race but he still beat all of Britain's best - not that that's saying much.

Give both Laverty and Lowes a ride each so we can all relive the glory of the their fellow champs
McWilliams
Hodgson
Toseland
Crutchlow

Hell even give that Ginger kid a Repsol Honda just to show them all how little british talent there

@ the above comments.....

Interesting that you choose to only use half of the information and chose 30 years. If your going to try and belittle a nations acheivements, at least use all the info. GB have won the most GP titles after Italy.

Going by your mentalitly, i can only assumke you are from the country in which GB have over double the numbers of GP titles that your country has, despite your country having a population of almost 5 times that of GB. Quite embarrassing really. So please dont talk to us about talant, or lack of it hahahahahahahahhaha! GB has 5 times the amount of talanted top flite riders, yet it has a population of 5 times less. That i find hilarious! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!

Keep your fingers crossed for Kenny Noyes guys! Yeah baby! And id keep cheering for Spies guys as he's your only hope of success over the next 5 years! LOL!

hey grechin 5 years! spies is the outstanding talent in the usa,one of those kinda guys only come along every 30 yrs or so,i reckon hes the only chance they have for the next 20 to 30 years,dont see anyone like him in ama,mind you many of the yanks on here think edwards is a total hero in gps,even tho hes totally failed and never won a race,ive never read so much gushing worship over a gp failure. the americans will never match europes bike racing talent pool.

one does get fed up listening to these big mouth yanks puttin down riders like crutchlow,who is having a struggle in his rookie season,and he could have done better in wsbk last year,(also his rookie season),he only won three races,lots of poles,podiums etc. but they never mention that it took edwards FOUR YEARS,72 RACES in wsbk to win that many(3 races).and now they are chewin on young laverty(new to a superbike)who will win something similar in his first year. yep thats right yanks four years it took edwards to win 3 races,factory yamahas,and factory hondas

"I was pleased to have exceeded Elena Myers' lap times by a full two tenths on my best lap, so things are definitely looking up..."

You know, at some point silence is probably the best tactic. I don't know who Tech 3's PR person is but they ought to save the ink at this point.
