Dani Pedrosa Blog: A special weekend for everyone at Motorland
The Aragón GP was special again. First because I was on the podium another time and also because the team got its victory number 100 and because of the atmosphere created by the fans. From the off we saw that Casey had the fastest pace in the first sector and we knew that it would be difficult to keep up with him during the race.
The important thing is that we have managed to string three podium finishes together and we are working along the right lines regarding trying to get a victory. The motorbike is working very well and that helps us to carry on improving in the fight to be among the best. The atmosphere during the whole weekend at the circuit was spectacular. The fans get a 10 for their support.
The truth is that it was unthinkable, after the problems we have had with injuries this season, that I could be fighting to be among the top three in the championship. We will have to carry on working hard if we want to overtake Dovi, who has had a fantastic season.
This weekend was also very special because the team got its 100th victory. We have to congratulate everybody that works with us as they make it possible for us to get on the bike every weekend and let us do what we like best. A success that all of us have celebrated as it should be: with the whole team and some commemorative -shirts.
Now we can disconnect a little and continue working hard so that we go to Japan in the best possible form. Next week we can have a look at the circuit of Motegi and I will also tell you how my week has gone.
