Laguna Seca: New clothes for Colin Edwards' Yamaha YZR-M1


Rossi won the Dutch TT this year after Yamaha gave his YZR-M1 a new paintjob. Will this new livery work the same magic for Colin Edwards?

The Texas Tornado, Colin Edwards will run a special paintjob on his M1 for the 2007 American MotoGP at Laguna Seca this Sunday. After the Fiat 500 paint scheme which both Rossi and Edwards used at the Dutch TT at Assen, this will be the second one-off livery that Yamaha would be using this year. Says Colin, 'I'm always very proud to race in front of my home fans and I'm especially pleased to have something extra special to give them this weekend.'

Edwards is a talented and very likeable rider, though we think it's Nicky Hayden who stands a bigger chance of winning the 2007 USGP at Laguna. But if Edwards does end up beating Hayden, it has to be down to that funky paintjob...
