Pedrosa Blog: Training hard for Misano

Pedrosa Blog: Training hard for Misano

The most positive part of this weekend was being able to finish despite the tough conditions…

In his latest official blog for boxrepsol.com Dani Pedrosa looks back on the Octo British Grand prix:

Hey everyone!

I’m writing to you after a tough British GP that required us to constantly stay focused due to the adverse weather conditions.

As I’m sure you all saw, after gradually making progress throughout the practice sessions, on Sunday it started to rain during the sighting lap before the race, which created confusion.

When we eventually got the race started, I was pushed back a few spots but I managed to gradually make up for it, and I came in fifth place. The most positive part of this weekend was being able to finish despite the tough conditions.

Now we need to focus on improving race by race, and our goal is to give everything we’ve got at the San Marino Grand Pix in two weeks time. That’s why we need to keep training, and over the next few weeks I’m hoping to give 100%.

On Thursday, we got some really shocking news, the loss of Juan Garriga and I want to offer my condolences to his family and friends. He made motorcycling great and for all of us who have grown up loving this sport, we are going to feel a certain emptiness in his absence.

Besides competing, we’ve done a few other important things during the GP. Riders for Health organized their yearly charity auction, so I donated my racing suit to it for a good cause. It’s great to see so many people come together to help those in need!

Recently, lots of cycling fans, like me, have been really enjoying la Vuelta a España. I’ll have to wait and see if after trainings I have the chance to see how the next exciting stages end.

All the best to everybody, we’ll be in touch through the blog. Thanks a lot for your constant support.

Question of the week

How would you feel about taking part in the Suzuka 8 Hours race in the future? Gus.

Yes of course! I’d love to take part in the race someday in the future. It’s a race with a rich tradition and many fans. I really hope I get the chance in the future!

Regards,

Dani
