pics from assen

from superbikeplanet.com

American Colin Edwards II led nearly the entire '06 Dutch TT but a mistake on the closing laps helped Hayden close.


Hayden tightened up his lines and shadowed Edwards.


In the immortal words of Paul Page: 'Does no one want to win this race?' Nicky caught a false-neutral and rode across the gravel.


Drama unfolded: at nearly the same time Edwards rode off and lost control.


Edwards crashed within sight of the flag.


Hayden miraculously saved his race by staying up.


Hayden in the gravel.


Edwards leapt to his his feet and grabbed his Yamaha.


Fellow American Hayden leaves the gravel. 'Them Michelins actually have decent grip in the stones,' thought the Supermoto guy.


The cornerworkers help Edwards get his Yamaha re-fired. The anguish is clear on his face.


After he crosses the line the disapointment is clear. No one who saw Edwards ride at Imola in '02 can ever be critical of his riding. He's a master.


Hayden scores win number two, this one at the legendary Dutch TT. The British GP is next up and Edwards will be looking for redemption. A certain Texan goes well at Donington.

Just gotta say, does anyone else just crack up every time they see the A-Style logo?

My buddy pointed it out to me (I was busy watching the race) and I laughed my butt off.

Awesome pics! Those close-ups of Colin really tell the story.

Awesome Pics Ad.

If they ever take that logo away, I will stop watching racing..

By the way, Yamaha needs to improve development and build a bike that can stay upright and finish a race by itself. In one picture, the bike is picture perfect straight up! That was a real shame for Colin, still can't figure how he fell off the bike though.

All the traction control in the world won't save you on astro-turf. Now maybe if he'd had a mirror and see Nicky beach himself,,,,,,,,,,

My eyeballs darn near popped out of my head watching that last corner. I really wanted Nicky to win, but not like that. I felt just horrible for Colin. That guy led the whole race flawlessly.

I think he's quoting that no hit wonder that had everyone doing like the do on the Discovery channel. I heard the song, but didn't see the video so unfortunately I got confused, thought it was mythbusters they were referring to and now I have a bunch of kids!

Hey Danke, I just looked at the pictures again - I still don't see where Colin went on the turf or gravel to fall off the bike. What happened?

There was a good shot at the end of the broadcast from overhead, after the interviews. If I remember right he cut it tight inside, probably thought he needed to be on the gas (I don't think he saw Nicky blow the corner) and the rear end just lit up while inside the curbing on the turf. Spit him right off.

I haven't seen it yet either but if you look at #2 in the series NH is headed for the weeds, and CE is just getting ready to flick it. #3 and NH is swearing in his helmet. #4 CE's just cut the curb and clipped the carpet, it's deceptive because the bike's swapping and he's being ejected. Instead of sitting at 6:00 and 12:00 the bike has hopped over to 8:00 and 2:00. The of course as soon as it dumps Colin there's no more input and it straightens up and carrys on without him. Never trust a Yamaha!

Did Colin's shield just come off, or did he rip it off? I would really hope a face shield would stay on during something like that. Exposed eyeballs become scary fast.
I need to watch it again, although I don't remember them showing much of Edwards after the crash.

Looks like he hit hard enough to flick it open, and then did a digger to peel it off.
