Pedrosa looking for extra boost from home crowd support
For the second time in its short history, the Motorland Aragón circuit will hold this weekend a Motorcycling World Championship round, just before the Continental Circus starts its tour around Asia and Australia. The Repsol riders will have their third “home” Grand Prix after the races in Jerez and Catalunya. Dani Pedrosa, Casey Stoner and Andrea Dovizioso will look for another victory in MotoGP.
Dani Pedrosa arrives to Motorland Aragon looking forward to compete after missing the last home Grand Prix at Catalunya. After his second positions at Indianapolis and Misano, the Repsol rider will try to improve his position to get his third victory of the season.
Dani Pedrosa: “I have very good memories of the Grand Prix of Aragon, last year we started well and we had a good race. I’m satisfied with our performance in the past few weeks and I feel better every day. This week I’ve been able to rest and recover some energy and now I’m really looking forward to this race.
People from all around Spain attend the Aragon GP and the atmosphere there is incredible. The circuit is spectacular and very technical, it combines fast and slow corners, some of them complicated and blind where you need to find points of reference outside the track.
We need to set up the bike very well for this track and make the most of all the practice sessions. The data we have from last year can help us on this and it will be important to start in a good direction but we cannot relax.
I’m excited to see the Spanish fans again after missing the Catalunya race and I hope the home support will give me an extra boost so that we can enjoy this race together.”
