After a near perfect weekend at Indianapolis - in which he claimed pole positron, a new record fastest race lap and victory - Dani Pedrosa is looking to continue the momentum as the MotoGP series moves straight to Brno this weekend.
The Repsol Honda rider, now 18 points from title leader Jorge Lorenzo, has never won in the premier-class at the Czech circuit - but is in the best form of his MotoGP career with podiums in the last seven rounds, including two wins.
“Brno is a wide and very fast track, with high speed corners where it is important to have good grip and front end feeling. Honda has been strong in the past few years there, so we hope to have a good performance in this race also,” he said.
“I'm looking forward to the race in Brno and to fight again for the victory. The set-up of the bike and electronics can be key, as well as the weather which is always a little changeable in the Czech Republic.
“We need to keep focused and strong and with options for the victory every weekend".
Pedrosa crashed from the race lead at Brno last year.
