Edwards crashed. Didn't he?

Here's a link to a one-minute YouTube video. It's our own Colin Edwards, the Texas Tornado, on his Yamaha in a Saturday qualifying session for the Jerez, Spain MotoGP race yesterday. Even if you are not a motorcyclist, I believe you'll enjoy watching this. Listen to the frenzied announcers - they know they have witnessed a once-in-a-decade save...

Oh - very probably, watching from the stands or standing in the infield was King Juan Carlos I of Spain, a "keen motorcyclist" according to Julian Ryder, the dean of motorcycle racing journalists.

That was quite the save. I'm still amazed by this one where the guy basically flips over the bars.
