Pedrosa Blog: A few days to train on my bicycle

Pedrosa Blog: A few days to train on my bicycle

In his latest blog Dani Pedrosa reflects on the French GP and looks forward to spending some quality time with his bike.

Hi everyone.

I’m writing to you from home now. The good thing about this part of the season is that I can finally have a bit of routine. The European GPs let me have this, and I have more or less the same time to rest between each of them.

It looks like the weather is going to be good for training too, especially for those who love cycling like me. The most important thing now is to recover and start preparing for the Mugello race.

I wasn’t expecting the result I got in France, but I’m not as disappointed as I was in Argentina. In Argentina, even though I was on the podium, I felt like I was further away. Now we need to work hard because it’s difficult to be competitive, so we all have to try and give that last little push that we need.

What was a surprise was that it didn’t rain at all which is unusual for Le Mans. Even still, that wasn’t an advantage for us during the race.

I had the chance to spend some time with the fans in the paddock and during some events that were organised at Le Mans on Saturday, after the official practice sessions. There were lots of people there, and once again we saw that the French fans are very passionate.

I’m going to try to make some time between my training sessions to watch the Giro d’Italia, one of the most important events for cycling fans. I’m going to follow it as much as I can, and of course I will be there cheering on the Spanish cyclists. Fingers crossed they can give us a good result.

Question of the week from urbantowns:
What inspired you to become a MotoGP rider?

Hi Urbantowns.

I just followed my dreams. Riding made me really happy!

All the best,
