Honda has renewed a 2 year contract with Dani Pedrosa!

Daniel "Dani" Pedrosa Ramal was born on September 29th 1985 and is a Spanish Grand Prix motorcycle racer for Repsol HondaDani Pedrosa had been riding a Honda his entire career, he began riding 2001, in the 125cc class, than 250cc class. 5 years later, in 2006, Pedrosa and the Honda race team felt he was ready to enter the MotoGP.

Early MotoGP days:
As mentioned, 
Pedrosa made the move in 2006 to the 990cc MotoGP, where he rode for Respol Honda.
Pedrosa didn't have much support from the press, as it was portrayed he wouldn't excel in this specific class due to his 'lean figure' making it a challenge to control a very heavy MotoGP bike.
Congratulations are in order to Mr Pedrosa, as he finished SECOND in the opening round at Jerez, March 26th 2006. He won his first MotoGP race on May 14th 2006, at the Chinese Grand Prix (in Shanghai), his fourth MotoGP race. That win resulted in him equally tieing with the late Norick Abe as the second youngest winner in the premier class. In his second MotoGP race- Donington Park- It was an exciting race! Pedrosa placed second, with Valentino Rossi in 1st, and Pedrosa's team mate Nicky Haden in 3rd. Like many athletes in a potentially Dangerous sport, Mr Pedrosa had his fair share of injuries. Team Repsol Honda looks to pull in strong this season! WOO WOO HONDA. I LOVE HONDA!!!

** Pedrosa has remained active since he started competing in MototGP, 2006, hasn't missed a year to date. Signing another 2 year contract for Repsol Honda a few days ago!

Dani Pedrosa
“I’m very happy to be able to announce my renewal with the Repsol Honda Team. I’m very grateful to Honda for the trust they’ve shown in renewing with me for an additional two years. I think it’s best for me to continue with the company I was with at my very first race. I’m happy that the negotiations have been quick, and now I can just focus on racing. I want to give 100% this weekend at the Italian GP".
