Having become the first rider to defeat team-mate Marc Marquez in 2014, Dani Pedrosa is eager to take on the likes of Marquez and Jorge Lorenzo in this year's battle of Britain.

While Marquez and Lorenzo fought to the line in last year's thrilling Silverstone contest (pictured), Pedrosa lost touch in the closing stages, finishing third.

"I'm feeling in good momentum at the moment after winning in Brno and then we had a positive test on the Monday," said Pedrosa. "It was a gruelling few weeks with two races in a row and so this past week it's been good to recharge the batteries.
