After narrowly losing out on the final podium place to Valentino Rossi at Silverstone, Dani Pedrosa approaches this weekend's Misano MotoGP round just ten points clear of the Italian in the fight for title runner-up.

"I'm looking forward to Misano this weekend," said Pedrosa. "There is always a nice crowd over the three days and a good atmosphere with the Italian fans. Hopefully we'll have good weather from the Friday and get things going in the right direction.

"It's a short lap but intense with many overtaking points and it's quite bumpy, so set up is key. Let's hope for an exciting race!"
