Paddock Press: De Rozas on Pedrosa´s 2008 season

Paddock Press: De Rozas on Pedrosa´s 2008 season

Repsol Honda rider´s season in focus as Paddock Press series continues.

Dani Pedrosa was once again in the mix for the MotoGP World Championship in 2008, although for the third consecutive year the Spaniard fell just short of the ultimate honour in motorcycle racing. His season is reviewed for Paddock Press by Emilio Perez de Rozas, journalist for El Periodico, who reiterates the inopportune timing of Pedrosa´s Sachsenring crash.

`There were so many difficulties after that fall; he was injured, had to rehabilitate, suffered from the tyre problems and then took time to adjust to new rubber,´ says de Rozas.

`Despite this, I wouldn´t criticise him for pushing so hard on the early laps in Germany. To be champion at this level you have to take risks, even to that extent.´

Tomorrow´s Paddock Press centres on Casey Stoner, the man who pipped Pedrosa to second place in the 2008 World Championship.
