Cool Edwards wows the crowds in Hollywood

Camel Yamaha Team Rider Colin Edwards played his part in introducing MotoGP to Hollywood on Tuesday ahead of this week's United States Grand Prix, joining fellow MotoGP riders in a spectacular parade up Hollywood Boulevard.

Edwards, riding a specially-prepared YZF-R6 in the famous yellow, white and black ĎAnniversary' livery carried by Yamaha at last year's US Grand Prix, joined Nicky Hayden and Casey Stoner (Honda), Shinya Nakano (Kawasaki), John Hopkins (Suzuki), and Sete Gibernau (Ducati), as well as ex-racer Randy Mamola on-board Ducati's two-seat MotoGP bike, to ride up the famous street and perform for the crowds in front of the Chinese Theatre.

The riders then took part in a press conference and interviews for the US media at the Roosevelt Hotel, before attending the first screening of the new MotoGP movie, The Doctor, The Tornado and The Kentucky Kid at Paramount Studios. The movie is centred around last year's United States Grand Prix and both Edwards and team-mate Valentino Rossi play a starring role.

"It was quite strange to be riding a bike up Hollywood Boulevard, but it was fantastic how many fans turned out to see us!" commented Edwards.
"The turnout showed how MotoGP is growing in popularity here in the US and it was really special for us American riders to come home and get that kind of welcome."

"The movie is great, I really enjoyed it and re-living last year's race again has just brought home to me how much I want to win this year! We've got to build on last year's result and the only way we can do that is by winning! I can't wait till Sunday; I'm putting on my boxing gloves and I'm going come out fighting the second those lights go out!"
