Today, at Laguna Seca, home racer Colin Edwards will announce that he will sign its contract with Tech 3 Yamaha Team. How do we know that? Well, the last time I checked we were not predictors, but there has been done some negotiating last week at the rain-hit German GP at Sachsenring and the positive conclusions are to be announced today.
Even though the Texan has a great evolution in this year’s MotoGP Championship for Herve Poncharal’s squad (two podiums and a pole position) it initially considered to quit the premier class and race in America. But it seems that the tough negotiators at Yamaha can make anybody reconsider their options.
Colin Edwards will make team with British riders James Toseland, so Yamaha’s expecting a successful 2009 MotoGP.
Poncharal didn’t lost much time as it renewed its contract with Yamaha for two more years at the same race.
