Crutchlow says Edwards will start race

"Colin will start today's race! He wants 141 consecutive starts…Unreal"
Cal Crutchlow has revealed that Monster Yamaha Tech 3teeam-mate Colin Edwards, who broke his collarbone on Friday and had an operation on Saturday, wants to try and start's this afternoon's Catalan MotoGP.

Crutchlow wrote on his Twitter page @calcrutchlow: "Can you believe 1 day after surgery on collarbone, plated and pinned, Colin will start today's race! He wants 141 consecutive starts…Unreal"

Edwards has not missed a race since his 2003 MotoGP debut. It seems that, if he is allowed to start, Edwards will ride a lap then pull into the pits.

Crutchlow has qualified sixth on the grid, which would be reduced to just 15 riders without Edwards and Dani Pedrosa (who broke his collarbone at Le Mans and definitely will not start).

@StevieBoy: Edwards has consistently been amongst the top privateer riders, even beating factory riders like Dovizioso and Hayden. He's a tremendous help to the rookies at Tech3 (Spies, Crutchlow) in all aspects, from racing to paddock life. To say he's done little and doesn't deserve his ride or anything, is plain ridiculous...

His career may not be a blast in this category of sport but he is surely one hell of a character! How can you not love this man? Kids, if you want to know who is Collin Edwards and what did he do to deserve his seat on this highest level of sport go to Youtube and search Collin Edwards! He was a hell of racer on his days!
