Pedrosa shoulder yet to fully recover

Wednesday, 14 August 2013

Dani Pedrosa has revealed that his broken collarbone is yet to fully recover, but that he is feeling far more comfortable after the MotoGP™ mid-season break.

The Repsol Honda Team rider was injured in a crash at the Sachsenring, after which he was forced to sit out of the German Grand Prix before riding in much pain to fifth place at Laguna Seca. Since then, his time off has revolved around his recovery.

“It's been a good summer break and I'm feeling much stronger physically,” Pedrosa says on Wednesday. “I've had time to relax with some friends and have also had lots of physiotherapy on my shoulder to prepare myself for this second part of the season. I've had a medical check in the last days and we can see the bone getting stronger.

“It still needs a few more weeks to recover completely but my feeling is already much better than in Laguna. It's important to remain focused, especially now as we have three races in a row. I've had good results at Indy in the past few years, I enjoy riding there and now I am eager to get back on the bike and ride at my best!”

Ahead of this weekend’s Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix, Pedrosa heads to the fabled Motor Speedway knowing he won there in both 2010 and 2012.
