And You Thought Pedrosa Was Boring

Thursday, October 1, 2009
Okay, so maybe Dani Pedrosa does lack the flash of some in the GP paddock. You could rightly say that Valentino Rossi possesses more charisma in his little pinkie than the diminutive Spaniard, but I’ve always thought Dani P gets something of a bad rap. Sure, there was that time he nearly destroyed Nicky Hayden’s title hopes. And, true, that Albert Puig character generates a lot of ire. But maybe, just maybe what is interpreted as dour pouting by Pedrosa is really just shyness?

Anyway, there’s no questioning that Pedrosa, like anyone else making a living riding a MotoGP bike, is faster ‘n snot on the racetrack. At Barcelona Pedrosa recently faced off against fellow countryman and Red Bull Air Race competitor, Alejandro Maclean, for a spirited ride around the track.

Before the race, Pedrosa took a spin in the Maclean’s Red Bull Air Race plane. Where afterward Pedrosa, get this, cracks actual real-life smiles talking about the experience!

See what pilot finished first in the unique race in the video below.

this guy can't ride with the other top riders.unless he is dominating by a few seconds he can't get the job done.i think honda made the wrong pick for developing a race machine around.
