Pedrosa looks back on 2005 and forward to his MotoGP debut

Dani Pedrosa added another key chapter to his career by taking his third consecutive title in 2005, the second in the 250cc class, displaying again a promising potential which opened him the doors of the HRC official MotoGP outfit, the Repsol Honda team.

Pedrosa appears as the most anticipated rookie in the premier class since Valentino Rossi move to 500cc in 2000, but the young Spaniard went though a tough 2005 season, as he faced one of the most competitive 250cc field in recent years. Pedrosa explained how difficult was the latter part of the season as he rode despite a shoulder injury and how he overcame the pressure to beat title rival Casey Stoner on his home soil in Australia.

Pedrosa also talked about the future, commenting: "this move (to MotoGP) is very important because you stop to be a child, you stop to be a student. You start in a new project and this is coming serious because those bikes are dangerous if you don't control them (...) I think is important we do this move in a good moment, is important we do it slowly, step by step, learn it in the way I should learn and don't try to do the things so fast and arrive very fast to the top."
