Dani Pedrosa says he is 'slowly' getting back into top form after the Repsol Honda rider won two of the three successive flyaway rounds as the MotoGP World Championship nears a conclusion.
Pedrosa clinched his first win of the season at Motegi in Japan and followed up with a dominant success at the penultimate round of the 2015 series at Sepang in Malaysia in October.
With one round remaining at Valencia in Spain next weekend, the 30-year-old is eyeing his third win this year in front of his home fans and has thanked his supporters for standing by him during a tumultuous season, which saw Pedrosa ruled out at the start of the campaign after the factory Honda rider underwent surgery for arm pump.
“We've finished the tour of Asia now, and we're really happy with how it went,” said Pedrosa, whose win at Sepang moved him into fourth place in the championship standings, two points ahead of Ducati's Andrea Iannone.
“We've had three really beautiful weeks, with the whole team excited about every race, and us overcoming any difficulties and experiencing some intense emotions.
“We're slowly getting back into the rhythm of things, which has helped us to ride better and get better results.”
Addressing his fans, he added: “You've supported me all year, when we've had bad races, and now that they're going well for us. And it's been like that for years now, season after season. That's why I want to dedicate this victory to you again.
“In Sepang, I felt good on the bike and enjoyed the track. We're proud of this win, in one of the year's most challenging races, in terms of how physical it is.
"Also, together with the race in Japan and Marc's victory in Australia, the Repsol Honda team has scooped the 'Asian treble' this year,” added Pedrosa in his official Repsol blog.
“Now I'm thinking about Valencia. It's a special circuit for the end of the World Championship.”
