Colin Edwards Announces Retirment

I have always liked Colin. His battles with Bayliss are some of the best ever. Hopefully we get to see more of him this year.

Such a great personality off the track. Sure hope he finds some way to stay involved in the sport.

I will miss his one liners and direct talking to both riders and media alike. One of the few riders who has talent and character.

He strikes me a s one of those "Lock up your daughters!" type of guys.

Good on him.

Hope he writes a book about his life experiences on & off the track.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

Great man, would be great as a commentator.

I think it would have to be an internet channel though because he does like the odd swear word.

It was time.....he has his training camp which I believe he will continue to operate.

He'll be around, I'm sure.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
