Colin Edwards: BT Sport Biography

The 'Texas Tornado' provides unique insight and analysis across BT Sport's exclusive live MotoGP coverage.

Colin Edwards

Colin Edwards is a former MotoGP rider and two-time World Superbike champion who now works as a pundit for BT Sport.

The 'Texas Tornado' provides unique insight and analysis across our live MotoGP coverage.

He moved into the media after calling time on his long and successful two-wheeled career halfway through the 2014 season.

Colin shot to prominence in the World Superbike Championship in the mid-1990s as he duked it out with legends such as Carl Fogarty and Troy Bayliss.

He won titles in 2000 and 2002, setting a record points total for a season (552) in the latter campaign which still stands today.

Colin then moved into MotoGP in 2003, picking up 12 podium finishes and three pole positions over the next 11 years, with a best championship finish of fourth in 2005.

Widely regarded as one of the best test riders in the business, he remains active in the sport in this capacity, alongside his BT Sport duties.

Since retiring from front-line competition he has also set up The Colin Edwards Texas Tornado Boot Camp, which is a world-class motorcycle training facility built on a 20-acre plot of land near Lake Conroe.
