The shoulder is good, says Edwards
26 January 2012 – Colin Edwards has shared the latest news on his left shoulder, which was damaged in the Malaysian MotoGP crash in which Marco Simoncelli lost his life last year.
Edwards was injured when both he and Valentino Rossi collided with an out-of-control Simoncelli; as a result, the American missed the season finale in Valencia.
“It’s good - it’s not 100 percent, but I woke up the other morning and my right shoulder hurt more than my left and that’s the one I didn’t have surgery on!” Edwards jokes.
“Obviously I tweaked both of them, the left one needed surgery and the right one is a little bit loose, but it’s good; I am out riding here at Boot Camp, training and getting everything in order.”
For 2012, Edwards moves from Tech 3 Yamaha to the new NGM Mobile Forward Racing team, which is entering a CRT bike.
In the meantime, Tech 3 replacement Andrea Dovizioso admits that his injured arm will not be fully recovered by the time testing begins in Malaysia next Tuesday.
