Spain MotoGP: Pedrosa set to equal Agostini podiums

Dani Pedrosa's second place last Sunday in Argentina marked the 87th time that he had stood on the podium since moving up to the MotoGP class in 2006.

As shown in the table below, that is just one less podium than eight-time 500cc world champion Giacomo Agostini, who holds the record for premier-class titles.

Runaway podium record holder Valentino Rossi and double MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo are the only other riders in the top ten currently racing in MotoGP.

1. Valentino Rossi: 148 podiums

This constant Agostini reference thing is getting tiresome. For a start they don't have a 350cc class anymore, so it's not even like for like comparison. Ago was great and put together all his stats before other riders got equal machinery, when they did he started losing and left MV in a sulk. Brilliant rider, but not as good as the figures suggest. Not at all his fault, I know, but it demeans the records of any rider since.
