Pedrosa Blog: Looking forward to the German GP

In his latest Dani Pedrosa talks fans, the Tour de France and looks ahead to the German GP.

Hi everybody,

This week, we’ll be tackling this race right before the summer break. We’ll be making our way to Sachsenring tomorrow, and the technicians and I want to check out the setting to better understand how to improve performance as it’s a track I know well.

You can’t take your eyes off preparation...

To be honest, having so much free time between races makes it difficult to stay focused on racing. You can’t take your eyes off preparation. The upside is that you have time off to be at home and enjoy the good weather.

This weekend a fan came to visit me who lives 100kms from my house. He came over with his dad and rang the doorbell. He said that he’d wanted to meet me for a long time and it was a great surprise. It’s deeply touching when you see that people support you and encourage you in that way.

I don’t want to end this week’s post without mentioning the Tour de France cyclists after the day they had last Sunday. This year is tight although Chris Froome is still the favourite after getting the yellow jersey going through the Pyrenees.

I’d like to send my best to Alberto Contador who had to abandon the race, and “Purito” for his great career in this sport. He announced his retirement and it’s been a pleasure to enjoy his pride and dedication these last few years. He’s a great example for everybody.

The Alps are coming up so good luck to all the cyclists. And for the fans, keep enjoying the great show they’re putting on for us!

Question of the week, from Nicolets:
Hi Dani. If you could repeat a circuit in 2017, which would it be? Thanks!

Hi Nicolets,

The circuit I’d most like to see on next year’s calendar is Laguna Seca, one of my favourites.
