Pedrosa: "The atmosphere is always amazing"

Number 26 looks to bounce back on home turf

Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) suffered a DNF at Mugello after a last lap crash that collected Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda), and the 'Baby Samurai' is eager to get back on track - and at home - as the Catalan GP awaits. With the home crowd always a great atnosphere and Pedrosa's fan club also on site, the number 26 will be pushing hard for a good result.

A previous winner at the track in the premier class and lower classes, Pedrosa says the recent test at the venue was positive and provided good information ahead of racing on the revised layout for the first time - and he'll be looking to get off to a good start this weekend.

Dani Pedrosa: "I’m looking forward to going to Montmelò as I like the track a lot and of course the atmosphere with my fan club and all the fans is always amazing! We will work hard to get back to the level we were at before Mugello and try and make good use of the information we gathered during the test we had at Montmelò in May, which was quite positive. Besides working on the setup, during the test we had the chance to try the new chicane and the modifications carried out to the layout which is more tight than before in that sector, even if the lap times are similar to the past. The surface is really bumpy and that also will be a factor to take into account. We are ready to give our 100% to get a good result!”.
