Daniel Pedrosa Ramal, better known as Dani Pedrosa, is a spanish motorcycle racer, triple Motorcycle World Champion in various categories (125 cc 2003, 2004 and 2005 in 250 cc). Since 2006, he tries to be champion in the premier class MotoGP, where he was runner-up in 2007, 2010 and 2012.
Dani is a pilot generally well liked and respected in the motorcycle world, which has achieved many victories, but the lack of a little good luck has prevented him from getting so far its desired goal of being world champion in the premier class. It has been close twice, but injuries (is considered very fragile in this respect) have always prevented, when was in his best moment.
Although he has always been considered a bad fighter in the melee, it seems that in recent times is trying to change this and has kept short but nice battles with both Lorenzo and Stoner (who won in the last, before to withdraw).
Everyone agrees that his driving is extremely thin, but that suffers of fail under pressure.
