Thanks for the birthday wishes!

Hi everyone!

First of all I’d like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday recently. You’re all great!

The day after my birthday I was in Tarragona with all of the other Repsol Honda Team riders for a good cause. All the money raised at the event went to the Solc special education school, which we had the opportunity to visit. It was a really moving experience. While we were there we also supported the 2017 Mediterranean Games, visiting the Tarragona Amphitheatre. It really is quite spectacular!

We ended the day with our trials teammates, who put on a great show to an arena full of fans.

Now I’m focusing on the Asia and Oceania tour, which has some of my favourite circuits like Motegi and Sepang. We’ll have to work hard to get our groove back like we had it in Misano and be competitive in the three upcoming races.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK, from Laura 26.
We all know that the Asian triple header is one of your strong points and I think you’ll definitely be back on the podium! My question is: how many languages do you speak? 26 forever!

Hi Laura,
I can speak five languages: Spanish, Catalan, English, Italian, and French. Obviously, I speak some of them a lot better than others. Travelling for so many years and meeting people from all over the world has given me the chance to learn lots. Thanks to my teammate Aoyama, I even know a few words in Japanese. It’s a blast!

Talk to you soon,
Dani Pedrosa
