Toseland wants end to Edwards hostility

Tech3 young-gun wants to heal rift with team mate Edwards

JAMES TOSELAND wants to end the hostile rivalry that's building up between him and Tech3 team mate, Colin Edwards.

The rift was caused when Toseland requested a change of crew chief, citing communication problems with his 2008 crew chief, Guy Coulon.

For 2009, Coulon was replaced with Edwards' crew chief, Garry Reynders and Edwards now works with Toseland's former crew chief Coulon.

During the winter testing period, Edwards has relished in the fact that he's consistently beaten Toseland's best times.

The situation doesn't look likely to improve as Edwards requested a wall be placed in the pits to divide the two riders, just as with the Fiat Yamaha team when young-gun Jorge Lorenzo became Rossi's team mate.

Toseland added: "It's playground stuff now and it didn't need to get to this.”
