Pedrosa ready to return to action

Dani Pedrosa returns to his massive points hoard this weekend after a brief holiday and three weeks of hard training in preparation for the final seven races of the season. The Spanish youngster clocked up an average of 20 points per race over the opening nine rounds, his total of 180 leaving him some 34 clear of nearest chaser Randy de Puniet.

"The holidays have flown by, although I only took one week off to do nothing," explained Pedrosa, who took victory at Brno on his way to the 125cc title last season. "But it was nice and I'm ready to go back to the racetrack. I am enjoying myself this season because I learn something new every time I go out on the track and that is very stimulating.

"We have had a good first half to the season, better than we expected, but the end will be very tough and we have to be ready. I'm glad we're starting off in Brno because it is a circuit which always went well for me with the 125.

"There are only two races left in Europe, other than the last round at Valencia, and the ‘flyaways' will be stressful, with a circuit that we don't know thrown in there at Qatar. I'm very motivated and I'm looking forward to getting back on track."
