Dani Pedrosa testing with Bridgestone

Published: 01 September 2008

These are the first pictures of Dani Pedrosa testing Bridgestone tyres at the Misano circuit today.

The Spaniard is evaluating the tyres ahead of his Bridgestone race debut in Indianapolis on September 14 after he made a shock switch from Michelin yesterday.

Pedrosa was released by Michelin to move to Bridgestone after Honda and Dorna both requested that Pedrosa make an immediate switch to Bridgestone.

Factory team-mate Nicky Hayden will continue to run his RC212V 800cc machine on Michelin tyres for the last five races after the request to switch was only for triple world champion Pedrosa.
