Mat Mladin Makes Statement Regarding Colin Edwards' Comments At Laguna Seca

Copyright 2001, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc.<BR><BR>This just in from AMA Superbike Champion Mat Mladin, regarding Colin Edwards' comments during a press conference at Laguna Seca. To see what Edwards said and did during the press conference, refer to related post from July 6, headlined "Edwards Blasts Mladin With Impunity At Laguna Seca World Superbike Press Conference".<BR><BR>Mladin's statement:<BR><BR>"If Colin Edwards was on time for the press conference he would have known that after we had finished our bit with Richard Chambers, (who at the time of my interview was the press conference host), we were asked to step down to make room for other racers to be interviewed, just as Nicky Hayden had done three minutes earlier to make room for Eric Bostrom.<BR><BR>"I thought it more wise to go to the AMA riders' briefing which was happening just 50 yards away than stay and listen to Colin's dribble. <BR><BR>"Personally I don't think Colin was very funny. He stated that he doesn't think any less of me. It's a shame I can't say the same about him.<BR><BR>"Mat Mladin"
