Pedrosa Blog: A very special week

Pedrosa Blog: A very special week

In his latest boxrepsol.com blog Dani Pedrosa discusses his new contract with Repsol Honda and looks ahead to Mugello.

Hi,

I’m writing to you at what is a very special time for me. This week, my renewal with Honda was made public, and I’m really proud because we’ve been working together for many years now. I want to say thank you to both HRC and Repsol for the trust they’ve always shown in me.

Closing this agreement means that I can get back to focusing on what is most important to me, and that is riding. The Italian Grand Prix is here and I’m really hoping to improve on my previous races.

Le Mans wasn’t the best circuit for us, but I hope that Mugello will be completely different. So I’m going to start the weekend feeling positive and we’ll work really hard with the team on the bike’s set-up.

Another reason why I’m feeling excited recently is that it’s been 10 years since my first MotoGP victory. It was in China in 2006. It reminds me that I’ve come a long way in my sporting career, and I really like to think that I’m still as motivated as I was back then.

Question of the week from Neg 26:

When you’re at home do you use a motorbike to get around the city, or do you prefer to use the car? If you use a motorbike, is it a scooter or a street motorbike?

Hi Neg 26.

When I’m at home, I like to use the scooter or the car. The more powerful bike is what I prefer on the track, as that’s where I can feel the most adrenaline.

All the best,

Dani
