Dani Pedrosa responds to Kevin Schwantz criticism

Repsol Honda rider Dani Pedrosa has spoken of his disappointment at recent comments attributed to American legend Kevin Schwantz that were critical of the Spaniard and his long-serving manager and mentor Alberto Puig. French and Spanish media outlets quoted Schwantz casting doubt over Pedrosa’s ability to win the MotoGP world title in 2013. This year is Pedrosa’s eighth in Honda’s official...

It's a long season ahead....

... and we're only 2 races in. Dani has never started particularly red hot, whether this is because the tracks don't suit his style or he needs to build into it after the winter lay off (injuries aside) but he'll come good by the end of the year. If he does take the title (very possible) then it will be down to him and not the comments of Schwantz egging him on. There are a few favourites this year for the WC and the competition will be brilliant and we should look forward to maybe one of the best seasons GP racing in the modern era, so sit back, enjoy and revel in the delight that we are able to watch every second of it!

Re.: Is Schwantz suffering from ASS? ...

Would prove interesting to know as to whether Revin' Kevin has any Welsh blood trickling through his arterials . . .

Why?

Boredom, the thrill of competition again, money, one too many bangs to the head?

Pederosa

Honda's engineers bet that Pederosa's light weight would give him an advantage in power to weight and so make him untouchable. They developed the bike with this in mind (ie accelerate to the front, baulk others in the corners and out accelerate everything on the straights). Unfortunately many years of this hasn't lead to world championships for Pederosa. He is getting known effectively as the eternal bridesmaid (ie there or there abouts but not quite with the killer edge to win world championships). It's that legacy which Schwantz is eluding to.

With Marquez in the team, Pederosa's standing will diminish with time unless he starts beating Marquez  regularly. He's certainly one of the best riders about but maybe (?) doesn't have the edge to give the Honda factory a world Championship.

Schwantz...

"he's been with Honda eight years and he's won nothing"

Didn't notice this... 8 years ago Dani won a championship for Honda... not too good at maths or PR. Nob!

Strange

his outburst about Pedrosa comes on the same week as he announces he is doing the Suzuka 8hrs. What an absolute coincidence, what are the chances?

unless

Eddie Lawson, Wayne Rainey, or Mick Doohan are posting incognito on here, it is ridiculous for anyone to slag off Kevin Schwantz.

As a racer maybe... as someone who can also open his gob I can quite legitimately comment on anyone else who's as bad at it as Schwantz is.
