Colin Edwards and participants of his Texas Tornado BootCamp celebrated their last day of bootcamp by holding a Why We Ride movie night! Despite his “semi-retirement,” Colin Edwards, aka the Texas Tornado, is still very active in the motorcycle industry. His “Texas Tornado Boot Camp” in Montogomery, TX (near Lake Conroe) is a premier training facility for anyone looking to improve their skills, from new riders to pros and everyone in between.
In August this year, Yamaha paid tribute to Colin Edwards with a cool video (watch it below), when the two-time World Superbike Champion and U.S. MotoGP racer announced his retirement. “MotoGP is a young man’s game and it always has been that way. Maybe I’m just not willing to throw it all on the line to make that last lap pass.” Colin told FoxSports. “I feel like it on the track but when I’m off the track I just feel it is nice hanging out at home.”
More recently, at the American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo) in Florida, Colin and his wife, Alyssia helped launch the all-new Yamaha YZF-R3. With his charming Texas drawl and trademark sense of humor, Colin and Alyssia Edwards starred in this comical video that pokes fun at his retirement and promotes Yamaha’s first pass at a smaller entry-level sport bike.
