According to Spanish website Motocuatro.com Colin Edwards will miss the upcoming French MotoGP race at Le Mans (May 18-20).

Edwards sustained a right collarbone fracture during qualifying at Estoril when he was accidently wiped out by Randy de Puniet’s sliding ART machine. The American is currently at the Dexeus Clinic in Barcellona waiting to undergo surgery later this evening, however after taking a look at his scans his Spanish physicians have recommended that he spend two or three weeks resting after his operation as he’s already suffered numerous injuries in that area. Whether the American heeds his doctors orders or cuts short his recovery period will be another matter, as the French circuit is historically one of his best.

The NGM Forward rider was present in his garage yesterday and watched all three races at Estoril from the sidelines and he tweeted, “One more question: (pain meds induced) Are all motoGP races as boring as that one today? Moto2 & 3 kicked ass!!!”

Our answer is yes and we couldn’t agree more.
