Despite suffering a broken collarbone just nine days ago, Monster Yamaha Tech 3’s Colin Edwards achieved the impossible with a third-place MotoGP finish at a rainy Silverstone, England on Sunday, June 12. It was Edwards’ 12th career MotoGP podium and his first since the 2009 British GP. However the Grand Prix of Great Britain came to a premature end for Yamaha Factory’s Jorge Lorenzo and Ben Spies, who both crashed out of the 20-lap contest. Coincidentally, Edwards’ teammate Cal Crutchlow likewise broke a collarbone in qualifying on Saturday and did not race. While the English weather dominated the storyline at Silverstone, over in San Marino, Italy, the conditions were much better for round six of the 2011 World Superbike series, where YFZ-R1 mounted Marco Melandri grabbed another Yamaha podium in the first of two races on Sunday.
