Motorcycle safety gear brand Teknic revealed that reigning AMA Superbike champion, Josh Hayes, will fill-in for Colin Edwards next weekend in Valencia, Spain. Hayes was originally set to ride the bike on Monday, the day after the MotoGP race as a ‘thank you’ for his efforts in America. But due to Edwards suffering shoulder injuries in the accident that took the life of Marco Simoncelli (RIP Super Sic No. 58) at the Malaysian Grand Prix last weekend Hayes has now been selected to pilot Edward’s Monster Tech 3 Yamaha YZR-M1 in Sunday’s MotoGP finale. This will be the first-time he’s ever ridden a grand prix prototype.
