It's not a bad record for someone who "got lucky" is it....
I didn't realise Nicky Hayden had that many starts, only 1 behind Colin...when did that happen?!
Mobus: Hayden and Edwards both started in MotoGP at the same in 2003, although Nicky was lucky to get a factory RCV whereas Colin did his rookie time on the (flaming) Aprilia Cube. The extra start comes after Edwards missed the final round at Valencia last year.
