Pedrosa declared fit

The number 26 has been passed fit to ride at this weekend’s Americas GP

Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) has been passed fit to head out on his RC213V at the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas, just one week after having surgery on a broken radius he sustained in his Argentina GP crash.

The initial fears were that Pedrosa would have to sit out this weekend, a track that he’s gone well at in the past. However, as was confirmed earlier this week, the three-time World Champion will attempt to ride – and thanked fans for their messages of encouragement. 

Watch Pedrosa and his competitors head out on track for FP1 at 09:55 local time (GMT -5).
