@46 Superior.
Bayliss put the icing on his cake when he won a GP race on the Ducati something Rossi in two years never managed to do, as for Edwards well he's never won a GP race on anything. Please explain why you think he would show the Spaniards the road?????????

@ Drake.

This guy, no matter how you rate his performance, should be were ever the hell he wants to be, and i say , along with just about everyone here, should stay in Moto GP. he has defenatly earned it.
Colin is a legend, and as long as he remains in the sport, he is a HUGE asset to everyone involved. let him retire when he wants to as did Barros and Caparossi. these guys have done their apprentiship and are great tradesmen and teachers

When CE went CRT I thought that - with his vast experience and having been highly valued for his feedback with Michelin and teams over the years etc that Colin would be the benchmark in CRT.

Instead, he has seemed to really struggle. There's lot of theories for sure, and yes he's not a young gun, but the BMW didn't move forward and got spanked by the Kawas last year (when everyone was saying how rubbish the Kawas were pre-season). Thing is - Colin still seems to be all at sea this season too.

Is it Colin, or is it the bike / electronics / geek input / other?

Here is a question for some one up to speed on crt engines. I know that they are down on horse power and they are given x number of engines for they year. The question is up until they point that the team puts the engine in the bike and uses it, are they not aloud to work on or try to squeeze a few more hp out of them. Or are they all sealed by the FIM before the first race????

Edwards is experianced moto gp rider that's passed his prime but he's been their done that and can still ride and help set up a bike.when the bike is ready Edwards will help you get your data from a rider's prespective without crashing every other week and when you think you have a bike hire a young stud to drive it!

Yet he didn't die or highside...I thought they were the arguments as to why 'they' cannot remove electronics from the premier class? If a rider can survive in those conditions on a variable track, there isn't the safety issue claimed.
