Colin Edwards also known as the Texas Tornado is an affable person who is uniformly liked by all in the MotoGP paddock.  The double world superbike champion is known to have great development skills and that has kept him with the official Fiat Yamaha team as Valentino Rossi’s teammate for four years and then in the Tech3 Yamaha team for a further three.  He has struck a rich understanding with his crew chief Guy Coulon who is known to be an engineer and a complete techno head.  The Frenchman is in fact responsible for the development of the frame and chassis for the Tech3 in the Moto2 category.  Colin Edwards has now signed with a Claiming Rules Team or CRT called NGM Forward Racing Team and since the team has not yet finalized its engine and chassis combination, Colin Edwards has requested the team to use a Yamaha R1 engine and a chassis prepared by Guy Coulon of Tech3.  Tech3 boss Herve Poncharal has sounded a little sceptical about the chassis bit saying that it would put Coulon under a lot of additional pressure.  Whatever be the outcome of these discussions, Colin Edwards will ride a CRT bike next year.
