Pedrosa 'hoping to ride well' in Austin
9 April 2014 – Repsol Honda Team rider Dani Pedrosa will be looking to step up and challenge for the win in the Red Bull GP of Americas this weekend.
Pedrosa finished third in Qatar last month, the 2014 MotoGP season opener, and after finishing runner-up in Austin last season, a race in which he led the first twelve laps before being passed by team-mate, Marc Márquez, he will be out to try and get gold this time around.
"I've had a good training week at home and now I'm looking forward to get to Austin, to see the team and ride at a track I like," said Pedrosa. "We had a good race there last year and we'll have to see how the bike works there this year.
"I hope to ride well and that we are greeted by the usual good atmosphere in America at this second visit to Austin for the Red Bull GP!"
