Dani Pedrosa

Dani Pedrosa (26)

Repsol Honda Team

Bike: Honda

Sabadell, Barcelona


Weight: 51 kg

Height: 160 cm

Twice a MotoGP World Championship runner-up – including in 2010 – and a top-three finisher for the past four years, Dani Pedrosa will begin 2011 more determined than ever to claim a first premier class title on board the factory RC212V of the Repsol Honda team. The Spaniard enjoyed four victories in 2010 and placed second five times before an injury interrupted his form towards the end of the campaign, and this year he will again have Andrea Dovizioso as a team-mate with Casey Stoner added to the set-up.

125cc World Champion in 2003 – his third season in the World Championship – Pedrosa eased into the 250cc category the following year, taking the title at the first attempt and defending it the following year before graduating to the premier class. Two victories in his rookie year placed him fifth and since then Pedrosa has never been outside the top three in the Championship, and in 2011 he will hope to go one better and clinch a first premier class title.
