Pedrosa looking forward to enjoy rest of the season after much-needed holiday
After a well-deserved break, this week the Continental Circus resumes the action on European soil. The Repsol riders go back to work with new energy and will look for new victories during the second half of the season. In the premiere category, the Repsol Honda Team reaches the technical track of Brno leading the championship and with three of the top four positions of the overall standings.
After his third position in Laguna Seca, Dani Pedrosa started two weeks of holidays with the only aim to relax and recover his strength to keep setting good times and be able to sign results such as the ones he had in Germany and the US —first and third—. The Spaniard of the Repsol Honda Team will try to be again on the highest step of the podium at the Czech Republic, a track where he has been about to take victory twice —second in 2009 and 2010—. Since he returned after his injury, Pedrosa climbed to the fourth position of the World Championship, just behind his team mate at the Repsol Honda Team, Andrea Dovizioso.
Dani Pedrosa: “These two and a half weeks have flown by for me, but I really enjoyed this break. The truth is that I needed it, first of all to rest after the last few races that were physically hard for me but also to disconnect a little and to train, to get back my physical strength and be fit again. My holidays have been a combination of all.
When I got back from Laguna I spent some days doing nothing just to relax the whole area of the neck, arms and back. After this I’ve been combining physical training with relaxation exercises to avoid overstressing the area. Now I’m looking forward to competing again and enjoying the races until the end of the season. The bike is working very well this year so I hope we can get good results and win races in this second half of the Championship.
Brno is a track I like, I’ve won there in 125 and 250, and I’ve had some podiums also in MotoGP so to fight for the victory is a challenge for me and I’m very motivated. I’m also looking forward to the test at Brno with the 1000cc bike. I missed the first one in Jerez due to the injury and I’m exciting to see to see how the new bike works”.
