Introducing Ohlins P&H Motorcycles’ Mike Edwards

Mike Edwards is without doubt one of the most experienced riders in the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship paddock and he is set for a return to the Ducati TriOptions 848 Challenge grid this season.

Edwards has 30 years of experience in racing, so what can he achieve this season that he hasn't before? We caught up with him for an exclusive Q&A for the Ducati TriOptions 848 Challenge official website.

What are your aspirations for 2013 and also your greatest challenge?
To finish on the podium at all the rounds and being the oldest solo rider at the BSB events.

What has been your career highlight to date?
I've enjoyed 30 continuous years in motorcycle racing having ridden something competitively every season since 1982.
I have picked up four separate British Championship titles along the way; 1988 (British JuniorStock), 1992 (British Supersport 400cc), 1995 (British Supersport 600cc), 2004 (British Supermono). On the 'pure' roads I've won the Macau Grand Prix on a ROC 500 and the North West 200 Supersport 600cc race.
I'm the last Briton to have won the Imola 200 and I am the only independent ACU certified commercial road racing coach.

Why have you chosen to race in the Ducati TriOptions 848 challenge in 2013?
It's a high profile event at BSB, a great one make series that highlights a riders ability, plus the fact there's nothing like riding a Ducati!

What has been your previous experience of Ducatis?
I started riding Ducatis in 1990 for Sports Motorcycles. I have raced the 848, 851, 888, 926, 955, 996, 998, 999, 1098 and the 1198. I also raced in World Endurance for the DRE (Ducati race experience) team, on a 998 and 999. My favourite machine would have to be a Ducati Supermono.

How are you currently preparing for the start of the season?
Working hard for Ringway, the contractor for the Highways Agency, gritting the roads of North Yorkshire.

With the new Ducati dealer league for 2013, are you supported by a Ducati dealer, if so which one?
P&H Motorcycles, Crawley.
