Pedrosa feeling positive about Misano chances

Dani Pedrosa travels to the latest round of the 2009 MotoGP World Championship at Misano feeling positive about his chances, despite the disappointing outcome of his Indianapolis Grand Prix weekend.

The Spaniard dominated proceedings throughout the event, taking pole position and leading during the early stages, only to crash on lap four before recovering to an eventual tenth position.

Nonetheless, despite the disappointment of missing out on a potential second win of the season, Pedrosa is ready to put the fall behind him and focus on a return to winning ways at the San Marino Grand Prix.

“It's really good that I'll get an immediate chance to make up for the disappointment of the Indianapolis race result,” he said.

“Although that was obviously a big let down and you never want to crash, the pace we set over the whole weekend was very encouraging and the fact that I could finish the race riding very fast again means that I've already been able to put the fall behind me and we can concentrate on being quick from the start of first practice on Friday.

“Misano always has a great atmosphere because there are so many passionate fans. Even though most of them are supporting the Italian riders, it's still a special feeling for everyone at this circuit.

“To be quick you need to ride quite aggressively there, and machine stability on the brakes and powering out of the corners is very important. I'm confident that we can be up front and fight for the win again this weekend.”
