Now, finally, I can tell you that I will be in Le Mans this weekend…
In his official blog for repsol.com Dani Pedrosa announces his return to racing in Le Mans:
I’m really happy to be able to catch up with you on the blog today and give you some good news.
My recovery has gone well, I think I was right to be patient and take it slowly, and to respect the time frames that I needed. Now, finally, I can tell you that I will be in Le Mans this weekend.
The truth is that I’m really keen to get back on my motorbike, as I’m sure you can guess.
It’s not just about that, though. I’m also excited to get back to my team to work side by side with them again. They’re a great bunch.
I wanted to thank you again for the countless messages of support that you’ve all sent me. They’ve made the wait much easier, I can tell you that from the heart. You’ve always been with me. As you always remind me, I know I don’t walk alone!
Question of the week
Have you ever stopped to think, when a fan approaches you, that in reality you don’t know him but he does know a lot about you and sees you as a close friend?
Question from pacojaen
The truth is that I’ve not really thought about it like that, or stopped to think on it in detail. But it does affect me in another way, a more emotional way, the feeling of it more than thinking about it. I mean that I feel the affection, the closeness, the way that you act with me. And there’s so many of you now that it actually almost seems normal to me now, when actually it’s incredible. I feel that affection especially in the bad times, which shows that it’s sincere. And that touches me a great deal.
Speak to you all next week,
