Compromise the key for Pedrosa on Friday

Compromise the key for Pedrosa on Friday

Dani Pedrosa used a modified setup to take second in practice for the Gran Premio Parts Europe de la Comunitat Valenciana.

Unable to run a setup for either soaking conditions or a dry track on Friday, Dani Pedrosa still managed to place second in the MotoGP practice timesheet in Valencia. The Spaniard used a modified setup for the afternoon run, with the hope of two dry opportunities later on in the weekend.

Dani Pedrosa - Second

`Conditions were difficult today. It rained pretty much the whole day and the asphalt was quite slippery. In these conditions we couldn´t work so much on the set-up, but anyway we were able to find a good compromise that allowed us to be quite fast. During the afternoon session the track dried out a little bit up, so we were able to improve our lap times and ride with a good rhythm. My Bridgestone wet tyres worked well today, but I hope that we can have two dry sessions tomorrow so that we can work on the set-up in preparation of the race.´
