Pedrosa Blog: Ready to roll in Japan

Pedrosa Blog: Ready to roll in Japan

We have three consecutive races that are each very challenging and because they are back to back, even more so…

In his latest official blog for boxrepsol.com Dani looks ahead to the Japanese GP after his return to the podium at Aragon:

Hi everyone,

Thanks so much for the birthday wishes! I had a great day and saw the tons of warm wishes that you sent me that day and the days after.

I always feel your support. You do it GP after GP and when special moments like this come around, you go above and beyond. Thanks so much! It was a really great day and I celebrated it with a dinner with all of my friends. It couldn’t have been better.

Besides that, I have also been focusing on doing physical work because like every year we are coming up on one of the most demanding parts of the World Championship. We have three consecutive races that are each very challenging and because they are back to back, even more so.

Plus, these three races are very far from home. Like it or not, all of the hours we spent travelling by plane in just a few short days are exhausting. But we’re ready for it!

Another thing is that the Japanese GP, just like the next two races, is quite different from other races throughout the year. Instead of using trailers, we live out of a type of cabin that is really well set up. In general, the atmosphere of the Motegi paddock is more relaxed than at other circuits.

We love racing here. It’s Honda’s home so you can just imagine the extra motivation we have when we get there. It would be incredible to have a strong showing from all of you. We’re ready to go especially after the exciting race we had against Valentino in Aragon.

I’ve been reading all of your comments and I’ve seen how you all loved the race. It made me feel very proud and I hope we can do even better this Sunday!

There’s one last thing to tell you before I go. This weekend we have a small surprise planned so make sure you pay special attention. I hope you like it.

Question of the week
Can you hear the fans when you’re riding your bike? Question from SergioP

Hi SergioP,

There are a lot of circuits where there is a great group of fans. On the curves and at some points along the course, riders can usually hear them. For example, I can hear the fans on the Nieto and Peluqui curves at the Jerez circuit and in stadium zone at Montmelo.

Best regards,

Dani Pedrosa
