Pedrosa Blog: My 250th GP

Pedrosa Blog: My 250th GP

In his latest blog Dani Pedrosa looks back on his 250th GP and reveals a trick of the trade.


I’m writing to you after a positive weekend. I really got into the swing of racing with the bike, especially towards the end of the race. I also felt a lot more comfortable with the tyres.

It was a shame I didn’t get on the podium, but I came very close. At least I’m heading back from Mugello feeling satisfied after getting my fastest lap on the last lap of the GP.

Italy was my 250th GP and that’s why I’m a bit sad I couldn’t celebrate it on the podium, but I’m still proud of having reached that figure. All I’m thinking about now is getting some good results and big successes for the team.

I can’t wait for the next GP and to try and develop the bike more, keep on progressing, and meet the fans.

Before saying goodbye, some of you have asked me about something you’ve seen on TV: I sometimes put bandages on my hands before going out on the track. It’s something I do to protect my hands from the gloves when I’ve got any blisters or cuts. This is very common, especially when the gloves are new. It’s just to protect my hands.

How early on in a race weekend do you know if the race is going to be easy or difficult? Or does it all depend on the race day itself and how you and the bike are?

Hi Joey.

From practice on Saturday you can tell more or less the race, but not always is exactly like practice or predictions are after practice. Your inner feeling is crucial to change things your way.
