Pedrosa tired in closing stages of race


Following his second place finish in Assen Dani Pedrosa commented that he was physically weakened in the closing stages of the race.

The Repsol Honda rider led for two thirds distance before being passed by his teammate, Casey Stoner. Speaking after the race Pedrosa admitted that in the closing stages he had little left to give.

“I tried to push my best every lap but I didn’t realise until maybe ten laps to go that I used all my energy,” said the triple world champion. “Towards the end I couldn’t really change the direction of the bike and end the bike became very heavy.  I believe that Casey saw me getting lazy on the bike.”

With Pedrosa unable to ride on the limit it opened the door for Stoner to move into the lead and claim the victory.

“In the last laps I tried to follow him and went to change direction and I couldn’t change to the left. I made a couple of mistakes and lost a lot of ground.”
