Difficult start for Edwards
14 September 2007 – Colin Edwards had a difficult day on Friday and finished 13th in the combined standings, which were topped by Casey Stoner. Edwards ran into problems after his promising start and was unable to improve on his time from this morning, finishing 0.727 second down in 13th.
Speaking about his day Edwards said: "This morning things were quite good, definitely not perfect but we didn't make a bad start. We had an idea about where we wanted to go this afternoon but unfortunately it didn't work out and we found ourselves in a worse position. I was lacking in traction and felt like I couldn't make the bike go where I wanted to go, which was pretty frustrating.
"We lost some time this afternoon but we'll have a good look at all the data tonight and go back towards this morning's setting tomorrow and see how it goes. I'm confident that we can find the right way so we're in a position to fight for a good grid spot tomorrow."
