What is all this crap about a waste of time and that their are better riders to 'give' give a crack ?

They are only really trying to develop the bike and it is not as if they have a bike that is going to score any points.

They clearly said they picked Chris because of his experience working with electronics and the correct use of tyres...

They just want data and feedback that is not skewed due to the rider not knowing the track , still learning the bike, or not being able to work with the team (he has worked with some of the team before).

EDIT by CRASH.NET! Inapropriate comment removed. Please tone down your comments and lay off the attacks.

The only riders that would take this ride is someone like Chris who is out of work, needs to show himself on something, and isn't risking missing up a full time gig. If any of you think someone like Haslam who is running at the front in WSBK and probably making good coin doing it would race this bike in it's current state than you're a idiot.

lets be honest. chris would have been a very wealthy (now retired) multiple WSB champ had he only stayed with Ten Kate. scraping the barrel for motogp rides is in my opinion wasted. oh what could have been.....

Anyone on this board can ride that bike with the same dismal result. Why are people questioning his shape? What is he riding a M1 or RCV?

Edwards is wasting his time riding this turd for 12th. Vermeulen needs the exposure but they both deserve better than to be fillers at the back of Motogp to save the sport.

These 2 should be in WSBK giving the top 10 a hard time.
