After undergoing successful surgery to his right wrist one week ago, Dani Pedrosa has begun his rehab period and, although he’s obviously not yet at 100%, will join Marc Marquez in the United States to try and take part in the third round of the MotoGP World Championship in Austin.
Marc and Dani have strong records at the technical, 5.513 km Texas circuit. Marc took his first MotoGP pole and victory at the venue in 2013 and has continued to post flawless qualifying performances and victories there ever since, bringing his tally of consecutive successes in the USA to 11 across all classes. Dani has climbed the Circuit of the Americas podium three times out of the four occasions on which he has raced there.
The Repsol Honda Team, in turn, have a streak of 14 GP wins in a row on American soil, starting with Pedrosa’s Indianapolis victory in 2010.
At the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas,
– Marc Marquez has 5 wins and 5 Pole Positions (MotoGP: 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017)
– Dani Pedrosa has 3 podiums (MotoGP: 2nd in 2013 and 2014; third in 2017)
