U.S. Motogp and MOTO2 Riders Preview Their 2014 Season During Q&a at COTA
Circuit of The Americas (COTA) today welcomed veteran MotoGP rider and native Texan Colin Edwards and Moto2 newcomer Josh Herrin for some chilly track laps and a question-and-answer session with journalists in advance of their 2014 season. Edwards and Herrin are two of only three U.S. riders competing in the two series this year.
The colder-than-normal temperatures and bone-chilling wind kept Edwards from his scheduled track laps; however, he did allow a friend who accompanied him to suit up and get some track time. The intrepid Herrin, a 23-year-old Californian who now calls Georgia home, braved the cold and took a street bike out for several trips around COTA’s 3.4-mile racing circuit, in between bouts of strong winds that pummeled the track all day.
