Colin Edwards has been in MotoGP nearly a decade now and while he showed promising results he never actually won a MotoGP race.  Edwards started his career in MotoGP on an Aprilia and went on to the factory Yamaha team after Aprilia withdrew from MotoGP.  Later he moved to the satellite Tech3 team still riding Yamaha equipment.  Now his future is up in the air.  The ageing Texan though known for development skills has not been producing consistent performances.  Earlier in the year there were rumours that Edwards was bound for World Superbikes probably with Castrol Honda with whom he won the title a couple of times.  However, Edwards has ruled that out with preference to remain in MotoGP but his unlikely to stay at Tech3 despite the fondness his team boss Herve Poncharal has for him.  Edwards has been saying positive things about CRT machines and that has now led to his being linked to the NGM Forward Racing Team on a Suter BMW but Edwards has queered the pitch by saying that if at all he went to a CRT team then his preferred motorcycle should be ideally powered by the R1 Yamaha engine.  However, Pramac Ducati rides could also be available to him with Loris Capirossi set to retire at the end of the season and Randy De Puniet considering moving to World Superbikes if he finds a competitive ride.
