Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa will not be racing at Phillip Island due to his injuries and a lack of endurance.
Dani Pedrosa: "“Phillip Island is a very fast circuit, I have to grip the handlebars very tightly, and this makes me very tired and gives me a lot of pain. To ride around three seconds off the pace in the race tomorrow and maybe collect just a few points wouldn’t make much sense. But I think it has been worth it to at least try to ride here because we really didn’t know how I would be on the bike until we tried.”
