The Repsol Honda Team returns to action with Dani Pedrosa

His team mates Casey Stoner and Andrea Dovizioso, in MotoGP, as well as Marc M�rquez in Moto2, will try to keep in Italy the good level he showed in the last races     The third of the for rounds of the Championship in this intense month of June will take place this weekend at the Mugello track. The Repsol riders arrive to Italian soil with the aim to repeat the podiums achieved at the Dutch Grand Prix. With them will be Dani Pedrosa, who will be in the MotoGP round after recovering from the injure that kept him away from the circuits in the last three races.The Repsol Honda Team set a very high level last year at the Tuscan track. With a great performance from the first laps of the race, Dani Pedrosa and Andrea Dovizioso signed the first and third position, respectively. The Spaniard won it all ?’pole position’, fastest lap and victory?, and together with his team mate received the ovation of the tifosi.Casey Stoner, current leader of the World Championship, will ride the Honda RC212V for the first time in the beautiful Tuscan track, well known for being very technical due to its combination of slow corners and fast bends. The Australian will try to keep the great level shown at the beginning of the Championship that allowed him to take the lead of the classification with a 28-point advantage. With 6 podiums in the 7 races already held ?four victories, a second and a third place?, the Repsol rider has become a referent in the premiere category.Winner last Sunday in the intermediate class, Marc M�rquez arrives at Mugello in very good form, that allowed him to achieve two victories and a second position in the last four races, rising up to the second place of the Championship. The Repsol rider will also have the additional experience of the test he did two weeks ago at the Italian track, where he had two days of training in which he rode under the 2010 pole position time and was able to keep a good pace with his Moto2. For Emilio Alzamora’s pupil will be a very special round, as this is the setting where he achieved last year his first victory in the World Championship in a memorable season where he won the 125cc World title.    Dani Pedrosa"After missing three races, I’m happy to be back in Mugello. During this period I’ve been very focused on my recovery and after the second operation I have improved a lot.I’m really looking forward to riding the bike, getting into the groove again and to be as competitive as I was before the injury.It’s been difficult being out of competition, but that was the situation and I couldn’t do more.I have been in contact with my team during this time and I know they also look forward to getting back to normal. Together we will work to regain the highest level and fight to win races again.Mugello is a difficult circuit, very technical and demanding, and I know it will not be easy for us, but last year we scored our first win of the season there and we would like to get a good result".
