Courageous Pedrosa defies the odds at Sepang

Even Dani Pedrosa himself doubted his participation in the Marlboro Malysian Motorcycle Grand Prix, and only made his final decision to ride during the 250cc race in Sepang. The Repsol Honda rider's gamble paid off, with a miraculous third place to take him 22 points behind team-mate and World Championship leader Nicky Hayden in the overall standings.

After taking the holeshot, Pedrosa was overtaken by Valentino Rossi and Loris Capirossi early on, but held off Hayden against all odds. The visibly exhausted Spanish rookie went straight from the podium to the Clinica Mobile, where he underwent treatment for an extended period of time. Motogp.com caught up with the Spaniard and his manager Alberto Puig to talk about his incredible performance in today's race.
