Pedrosa progressing on comeback trail

Medical examination reveals steady recovery for Spaniard.

Dani Pedrosa’s recovery following two surgical procedures has been the talk of the MotoGP world over the past week, and the Spaniard’s progression appears to be moving along well.

A medical examination on Wednesday suggested that the healing process was progressing smoothly, with the skin graft attached to his knee completely attached and adapted. Doctor. Xavier Mir also confirmed that a cast in place on Pedrosa’s previously fractured wrist could be removed. The former MotoGP World Championship runner-up will return to the Institut Universitari Dexeus next week to have stitches removed from the appendage.

As a result of the recommendation for complete rest, Pedrosa will be unable to attend this Saturday’s Repsol Honda team presentation in Madrid. He is scheduled to give a video press conference and pose with his new Honda RC212V whilst teammate Andrea Dovizioso takes charge of the physical side of the event.

Pedrosa will miss the final test of the 2009 preseason in Jerez as a result of last week’s surgery.
