Naast een racer is Colin Edwards ook een man die geen blad voor de mond neemt.
Ondanks dat Edwards op de wip staat doordat een of andere Brit zonodig in de MotoGP moet worden gehouden vanwege zijn afkomst dreigt Edwards zijn zitje te verliezen.
Ondanks dat Edwards af en toe een steekje op de baan laat vallen is deze Texaan rap van tong en wint hij de "gevechten" met journalisten veelal met stevige one liners en ongezouten kritiek.
In mijn ogen een super rijder die er hopelijk nog een paar seizoenen aan vast mag plakken in de MotoGP:

"It was crap,” he said of the race. “I don't know, we were kind of at a cross between soft tyre, hard tyre on the rear. I think everybody ended up choosing the same soft rear tyre, which I think Bridgestone were happy about.

“We didn't really know the degradation of the hard one, if it was going to be bad or not, so we went to soft. But it just felt like everything was pivoting on the rear, you know. I'd go in and the rear's stepping out, and that's not the fast way.

“It just seemed like it was spinning everywhere. And it doesn't help that our bike's slow,” he added, referring to a loss of performance following the introduction of the engine limit rule. “That definitely doesn't help the situation."

“Time to go get a beer."

"The guy has stopped impressing me a long time ago because he just seems to do it all the time. But what is it? I don't know what it is. You could say he's getting in the zone, but I think he's maybe permanently stuck there." - June 2008, about the brilliance of six-time MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi

"I ride a lot better when I'm pissed off, anyways. Always seemed to have. I was like: "Screw it. Chuck it into the gravel or let's see how far we can get up." - July 2008, about his reaction to finishing third despite dropping to last place on Lap 1 of the Dutch TT at Assen

"Maybe I just look at pressure differently. I just look at pressure as if there's just no option. Not pressure like, 'Oh, my God, I've got to do good; I've got all these people here.' I look at it as like: 'Well, there's no frickin' option now. I've got to kick some ass because they're watching.'" - July 2008, about the pressure of racing on home soil at Laguna Seca and Indianapolis

"The last two or three laps, man, they were just... Hell, I almost crashed going slow. I was going slow, and I went to flick into a corner, and a gust hit me and pushed me out to the white line. I missed the apex by about, I don't know, 10 yards, and I thought, 'Jesus Christ, this is jacked up.'" - September 2008, about the treacherous weather conditions during the inaugural Red Bull Indianapolis GP

"My heart goes out to these guys, and I see what the reaction is, and that pisses me off more than anything. Here we've got guys who are giving their lives to fight for our freedom and yet you still have people who are so against... I can understand being against the war, but at the end of the day, you still have to support the guys who are out there doing it. It doesn't matter what your belief might be. At the end of the day, they just don't get enough respect. That's the only thing I can do." - September 2008, about why he wears a U.S. Marines baseball cap at races

"Yeah, I am. This week, in particular, I went out and shot the .50-caliber yesterday. Blowin' stuff up, and it feels like any other week. But every time I think about it or rest at night, I know I got the first race coming up. So yeah, I get excited about it." - April 2009, about his growing anticipation to start the 2009 season

"I like the night race. I think it's a cool little scenario. It's something special; you only have one a year. It's something a little bit different. I tend to ride faster when I can't see where I'm going. Everything works out better that way." - April 2009, about the night race at Qatar

"I think it's me; I think it's the bike. I've had one good result there, and I don't know why, there are a couple of corners on that track that, I don't know, I just seem to be dorking around there. There are a couple of corners that I follow somebody, and they pull like a bike-length or two on me through them, and I'm like, 'What am I doing wrong?'" - May 2009, about his inability to find pace on sections of the Jerez circuit in Spain

"Well, you can take that carbon-fibre shell. I don't want anything to do with that. When I crash, I want to get as far away from all that action as possible. That's the mentality of a motorcycle racer. It's like: 'I want to get away. It's just me, with a whole road of gravel. Not me and some 2,000-pound vehicle fricking hurling into a wall. I'm out on that gig.' "- June 2009, about the difference between the mentality of motorcycle racers
and car racers about crashes

"I think they've done a good job to try and screw everything up after all the changes to the track, to be honest with you. Obviously, when I first started going there on Superbikes, the track was just, whew, ahh, it was amazing. Every little part about that track was just amazing. If you messed up one corner, hell, it'd screw you up for four corners down the road. They've butchered it. I don't know, man.

"This gets back into politics and all this other stuff why they changed it. Hell, there's a motorcycle track there, and then people move in and start complaining about the noise. Go figure. If you didn't want to live by a motorcycle track, then pack your (stuff) and move on.

"You get enough people that complain, and next thing you know, they had to change the track for noise control. The track has been there for, hell, I don't know how many decades. Which is just, it's ridiculous why they had to change it. But welcome to socialism." - June 2009, about his opinion of changes to the Assen circuit

"That Turn 1 is still a mother. It doesn't even look like a turn. But honestly, going over that thing fifth gear tapped, it will put a little pucker in your buttocks region occasionally if you did it wrong." - June 2009, about Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, home of the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix

"Hell, Valentino and Lorenzo were like scalded cats. They were gone." - July 2009, describing the fast pace of fellow Yamaha riders Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo at Sachsenring, Germany

"Everybody has got it. Traction control, anti-wheelie control, frickin' scratch-your-ass-while-you're-racing control; whatever control it is, there's always some new thing they're coming out with. Our cornering speeds right now are so just astronomical that if you didn't have traction control, man, you would be in orbit every other frickin' race." - July 2009, about the use of electronics in MotoGP

"You know, being a right-wing extremist, the rules are made to be broken. That's the reason you implant a rule in the first place so a few years later you can come in and change it. I think it's B.S. . I just think whoever works the hardest makes the most money. I just think whoever rides the best gets the best rides. And when you try to implement any rules saying, no this or that, I don't know, I think it's all bullsh*t." - July 2009, about a rule in 2010 that will prohibit rookies from riding for MotoGP factory teams

hé Kale, je mag ons iets gunnen hoor ;) , 't zijn idd dit soort mannen die 't kijken naar de race de moeite waard maken, ikzelf denk nog met veel plezier terug aan de tijd dat Jon Koscinski de circuits onveilig maakte. Vergelijk 't maar met McEnroe in de tenniswereld, die gast trok toch veel meer publiek dat die Lendl-robot :)

Kwa persoon kunnen we hem goed gebruiken alleen de resultaten naar zoveel jaar Yamaha zijn toch zacht gezegd teleurstellend. Misschien is een Ducati wat voor hem.

Hij staat 5e in het totaal klassement, de beste rijder uit een satellite-team. Hij laat daarmee ook een paar factory-rijders achter zich en zijn teamgenoot Toseland zet ook geen betere resultaten neer dan Edwards. Hij hoort gewoon bij de betere rijders van het veld en ik vraag me af of die met een duc wel voorin mee had kunnen rijden. Aangezien Lorenzo, Rossi en Pedrosa meteen wegrijden van het veld en niemand ze eigenlijk kan bijhouden.

Op de BBC had Suzi Perry :9~ een interview op de Grid met Toseland. Hier werd verteld dat als Ben Spies naar Tech3 komt, Toseland hoogst waarschijnlijk mag blijven omdat Yamaha GEEN 2 Amerikanen in hetzelfde team wilt......politiek dus :( Dit terwijl Edwards op deze Yamaha beter presteerd.
Ik heb niets tegen Toseland maar je ziet in alles dat Edwards beter is op deze Yamaha.
Tevens vind ik dat Edwards qua sfeer en humor de MotoGP een beetje opkrikt.

Dit vind Edwards ervan. :+

Colin's commentaar op de vraag hoe de Aprillia RS Cube reed:
- Like a rodeo with a bull, when you've just cut it's bollocks off



Quote's uit een interview met Riders Italian Magazine:


What are you going to do when you retire?
- I’m going to candidate myself for the Presidency.

Are you going to be jealous about the guys who are going to date your daughter? (Gracie is six years old)

- I’ve got a million guns and everytime she’s going to go out with a boy, he’s not going to wait outside for her, he’s going to come into the house and when he comes in he’s going to find me cleaning a gun. He’s got to know that if touches her, I’m going to kill him. Simple. Infact my favourite character is Jesus in the Great Lebowski who says “Nobody fucks with the Jesus”.

And you don’t fool around with Jesus.

- Yeah, nobody fucks with Colin

Er hangt hier niet voor niets een grote poster van Edwards.
Welles waar nog op de Castrol Honda met nr 45,maar hij blijft mooi.
Naast Barry Sheene O-) ben ik ook fan van Edwards.
De persoonlijkheid doet mij ook wat.

Hoewel Ben Spies het ook heel goed doet,hoop ik niet dat hij Edwards gaat vervangen bij de MotoGP.
