In the course of the next decade, he honed his skills and soon was ranked among the top junior motocross racers in the country, stringing victories one after another in both 50cc as well as 80cc category. In 1991, he entered local amateur road-racing events, steadily forwarding to national level competitions.
In 1992, Edwards signed a sponsorship deal with the South West Motorsports, turning pro and in his debut season won the AMA 250cc National Series title. In 1995 he joined the Yamaha team in the Superbike World Championship, while in 1996 alongside Noriyuki Haga, Edwards won the Suzuka 8 Hours event. During 1997 he was forced to take a break from competing due to a series of injuries, but after recovering he teamed up with Honda, and in 2000 won his first Superbike World Championship title. In 2001 and 2002 he won another two Suzuka 8 Hours titles, while in the 2002 season he added one more Superbike World Championship title to his professional portfolio.
