Back to competing

Finally! After three weeks of rehabilitation and the restlessness of not being able to compete, we’re off to Valencia. It’s great being able to go back to one of my favourite tracks. I feel ready, even though I’m not sure how I’ll feel being back on the bike after all this time.

Yesterday, I was in Milan at an Honda Event with many of my teammates. We attend almost every year, and I always enjoy myself because we get an up-close view of where the future of the two-wheeled world is heading. For those of us who love motorcycles, this is always exciting.

Right now, the only thing I can think of is Friday and testing myself on the bike. Knowing I’ll be surrounded by my fans gives me great strength during these times. You’ve always been there for me, and I’m going to do everything I can to try to make this race great.

Thanks for always reminding me that I never race alone.

Dani Pedrosa.
