NGM Mobile Forward Racing riders await the fourth round at Le Mans
The fourth round of the season will take place on French soil at the Circuit des 24 Heures du Mans this next weekend.
Colin Edwards is no stranger to the podium at Le Mans; both in 2005 and 2008 he finished in third place. The American rider enjoys riding at Le Mans and looks forward to riding on his FTR-Kawasaki bike this weekend. Teammate Claudio Corti also knows what it feels like to be on the podium here. The Italian rider had a podium finish last year while riding in the Moto2 category and would like to take his first MotoGP points at the this very same track.
In Moto2, our NGM riders Simone Corsi, Alex De Angelis and Mattia Pasini have previously been on the podium at Le Mans, all of them managing a third place in 2010, 2007 and 2008 respectively. All three Italians are eager to repeat their results at Le Mans. Their Spanish teammate Ricky Cardús was unable to finish the race in his previous visits to Le Mans but hopes that this year will be the turning point for him at the French track.
