Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa to Retire at End of MotoGP Season

HOHENSTEIN-ERNSTTHAL, Germany – Spanish rider Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda) announced on Thursday that he will retire from motorcycle racing at the end of this season.

Pedrosa, currently 12th in the 2018 MotoGP World Championship standings, said in the presence of his family and the top executives in the sport that he no longer feels the “same intensity” about the competition.

He said that while he could have continued riding with the new satellite team being assembled by Petronas, he decided that “the most honest thing” to do was to stop competing.

The three-time world champion, in 125 cc (2003) and 250 cc (2004, 2005), has raced for Repsol Honda since 2006, when he entered the MotoGP category.

Pedrosa is considered one of the elite riders in the world despite his never winning the world title.

The head of the championship organization, Carmelo Ezpeleta, announced at the event that Pedrosa is set to be nominated for the MotoGP Legends Hall of Fame at the end of the season.
