Back to the land of the rising sun

Hi everyone!

I’m really motivated to take on the four races that we have ahead of us, and where better to start than on a track I really like.

The Motegi track is one of my favourites and I have had some great experiences there. I have won in every category on that course and last year I was in peak condition.

I love Japan from its cultural vibe to the food. As many of you know, I put a samurai kanji on my helmet this year, which gives me strength and transmits the values of Japanese culture. I revealed the helmet’s design in Japan last year and I managed to take the victory, so I hope it still works its magic one year later and helps us get onto the podium yet again at Motegi.

Question of the week from Estela
What type of bike do you prefer to ride: an 800cc or a 1000cc?

Hi Estela,
To be honest, I prefer 1000cc bikes. They have more torque! That makes the ride different to a bike with less torque, but they are both pretty fast!

Best wishes,
Dani Pedrosa
