Colin Edwards to race Honda in WGP

Colin Edwards will be riding a Honda RC211V in the 2003 MotoGP World Championship. That’s the word from Jerry Jirkovsky of Pirelli/Bridgestone tire vendor California Race Services.

“I’m out here at Firebird International Raceway (near Phoenix, Arizona) vending tires for the track day before this CCS weekend, and Colin Edwards just shows up,” said Jirkovsky. “There’s only about 40 bikes here. So it kind of blew everybody away.

“I asked him, ‘So are still riding the Ducati next year?’ He goes, ‘Nah, it looks like plans have changed. I’ll be riding a V5 Honda in MotoGP next year.” Edwards went on to tell Jirkovsky that he was in town to do autograph signings at local dealerships, but his Honda RC51, which was shipped over for the appearances, was held up due to the strike by workers at the Los Angeles port.

Jirkovsky said Edwards showed up around 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time, stayed for about 15-20 minutes signing autographs and left.

Are there any more questions? RS

Yeah

Would make for an interesting year of MotoGP, with Rossi, Bayliss, Max and Edwards all going at it on decent machinery... yeah I'd watch that

I think Colin will rule. I think he'll dominate.

Not so quick, guys

From amasuperbike.com:

Wednesday, October 16, 2002

Reigning world (sic) Superbike champion Colin Edwards II confirmed moments ago that he will ride for Aprilia in Grand Prix next year, shunning a Honda offer that would have put him on a V5.

See the entire article at http://www.amasuperbike.com/2002-Oct/021015b.htm

Jerry Jirkovsky's a nice guy, but he really needs to change his last name.

Has been a donkey of a bike all this year, can't imagine they'll do any good next year either, even with the Texas Tornado

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?
