Dani Pedrosa will line up in Spain

Updated: April 1, 2011

Dani Pedrosa has confirmed that he will race in Sunday’s Spanish MotoGP despite recently finding that he had damaged nerves in his arm following a crash at the Japan Grand Prix in October 2010.

The Spaniard rider looked to have made a full recovery but had complained his arm felt numb during the season-opening Qatar GP and a scan showed his broken collarbone had mended but unearthed a nerve problem.

Pedrosa told BBC Sport: “I had problems with my left arm and couldn’t keep control. Finally I couldn’t use the clutch for shifting as I couldn’t hold the grip. It’s never nice to have an operation, but we’ve had a lot of time searching for an answer to the effects of this injury and I’m relaxed because I finally know what has happened. Now we are in Jerez and I want to concentrate on the race, working with my team in the best possible way to prepare for the grand prix.”
