After grabbing a third place on the podium at the Qatar MotoGP earlier this month, Dani Pedrosa is keen to improve his standing when the world tour comes to his home country...
I've arrived on home ground for the second GP of the year and I am feeling very motivated about riding at Jerez. In every race of the season, we work at one hundred per cent but when a race is on home soil it always makes us work that little bit harder - they are always special events.
Last week, I had to have a series of medical examinations after I experienced some arm problems in Qatar and, over the past few days, I've been doing different rehabilitation exercises - not only to strengthen but to also relax the affected area.
I'm well on the mend, so let's get back to talking about Jerez.
As I say, I'm very excited and very motivated and we are waiting to see how we perform in the race. Until we start to add up the miles on the track, we'll not know how fit and ready we really are.
The events at Qatar really left a bitter taste in my mouth, so now we have to be careful. After Jerez, we will have a month to work on what it takes to recover one hundred per cent, but now we must focus on the race ahead.
