How do you think a MotoGP top rider like Dani Pedrosa relax? Which sort of sports do you think he practices to stay fit? And what about his hobbies? Answers to these questions are being provided by the rider himself during this pretty interesting video released by the main sponsor of the Honda MotoGP team, Spanish oil and gas company Repsol.
Dani Petrosa: a life for motorcycle and MotoGP
Dani began to ride a motorcycle since he was a child. At the age of thirteen he consistently ranked in the top places in the world championship of minibikes. In 2000 he won the single-make championship and in the following year he made his debut on the Honda in the 125 class motorcycling world championship.
In 2004 he reached the 250 class and immediately won the title by collecting seven victories, five second places and a third place. Inevitably, proposals also arrived from the MotoGP, but Pedrosa prefered to stay another year in the quarter-liter. He remained and was again World Champion.
In 2006 Pedrosa moved to MotoGP on the Repsol Honda Team’s. He gets two wins, two second places and four third places. From here, a period of ups and downs started for the camp, full of satisfactions but also of injuries that risked compromising his career. The 2012, for example, started positively and gave him a lot of satisfaction. He closed the season in second place and it was the year in which he came closest to a well-deserved world title.
In 2016 he won in Misano after two podiums, but in Japan he broke his collarbone. In 2018 he did not get podiums in the first eight races, but announced his retirement at the end of the season.
Pedrosa’s real life explained in a video
Not much is known about boy’s private life. He has always been someone who has kept gossip away from his private life. We know that the Spanish motorcycle rider was born in 1985 and he grew up in Castellar del Vallès.
A footage was recorded during the last winter in Switzerland, where the Spanish star has been living for quite a few years. It represented Pedrosa himself explaining the reasons behind this choice as well as introducing the viewers to the sort of life-style he carries when ‘off duty’. Given the discrete and silent nature of the character involved, this clip turned out to be quite revealing of Pedrosa’s habits and general attitude toward life. From the pretty Swiss town Prangins, the diminutive Repsol Honda rider explained how he found the right balance necessary to relax between races in that small town with just 4,000 inhabitants facing the Lake Geneva. Pedrosa was pictured while carrying on pretty ‘regular’ activities such as cycling, buying bred at the shop, having fun with the PlayStation and going out for a quiet eve with his friends. Definitely an interesting watch.
