MotoGP Brno: Pedrosa sets sights on first win of 2015

Having broken Marc Marquez's winning streak in Brno last year, Dani Pedrosa is hoping history can repeat itself this season.
Dani Pedrosa is targeting a return to winning ways as the MotoGP World Championship heads to the happy hunting ground of Brno for the Czech Republic Grand Prix.

Winner in Brno last season, in doing so becoming the first rider to defeat Repsol Honda team-mate Marc Marquez in the process, Pedrosa is continuing his fight-back up the order in 2015 following his early-season surgery.

Up to seventh in the standings and well placed to ascend into the top five, Pedrosa is aiming high in the Czech Republic having won two of the previous three races there.

“Although the result was not what we wanted, I learned some things in Indy and enjoyed the battle with Valentino. I felt more comfortable on the bike and now we head to Brno where I won in 2014.

“This is a track I really like and always have a good feeling there. The atmosphere is special and I hope we can repeat our performance from last year. Let's hope the weather is good for us and we can work 100% from FP1."

madh4tt3r: I said from the start of his MotoGP career, he is too small to man handle this bike. He is an amazing rider, and the best on his day(when he has his days) but because of his height and weight it is nearly impossible for him to challenge for a full season, and he is starting to get older, so its only going to get harder for him to bag that championship.
This is what you guys said about him as soon as the switch to 1000cc's happened, then he rattled off wins and was still on the podium. He isn't too small to handle the bike. If he's too small, what does that say about the other riders that are close to his size and can't get results (or the guys who are larger and can't get the same results)? He hasn't challenged for a full season due to injury after injury, not an inability to ride the bike.

Agreed. Was it in 2013 he won more races than anyone else? Anyway, this guy won a LOT of races and is FAST, ain't that proof enough he's got enough stamina to drive? And as much he's at a disadvantage because of size, he's at an advantage because of weight.
