Colin Edwards has ruled out a return to the FIM Superbike World Championship next season.

The American has been linked with a move to the Aprilia team for 2010 but insists he hopes to remain in the FIM MotoGP World Championship with Tech 3 Yamaha.

The two-time WSB champion spoke to Aprilia boss Gigi Dall’Igna earlier this season but the 35-year-old has revealed his future does not lie with the Italian outfit.

“I met with Aprilia in Barcelona but nothing was talked about any details,” Edwards said.

“It was a bit further along than a text message like it was before, but it seems they have some interest.

“But I explained to them I’d like to stay in MotoGP and to do that there is no team I’d want to ride for other than where I’m at.

“I’ve a good relationship with Yamaha and Tech 3. I’d be happy to sign.”

    Colin Edwards… “there is no team I’d want to ride for other than where I’m at.”
    Very well said Mr. Edwards, he’s 5th on the standings of Season 2009, which is an envy position for most MotoGP riders, and would be a bad move to get away from where he’s now. James Toseland is the one who has to go !

      Very well said. Colin has a great ability to communicate what he is feeling in the bike to his crew chiefs. This one of the most useful skills a rider can have at this level. With all his years of experience behind him doesn’t hurt either. I really hope he sticks around in the MotoGP paddock as he is both a entertaining rider and all around good guy.
