With no time to rest, Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa are en route to Brno for the next race, round eleven of 2015 World Championship. A popular circuit with both the riders and fans, Brno is built in a natural bowl which has many elevation changes as the circuit navigates itself through the beautiful wooded scenery offering the spectators spectacular places to view. Both riders have enjoyed good results here in the past with Dani winning here last year and also in 2012 when he had a memorable battle with Jorge Lorenzo, claiming his first win at the Czech circuit in the MotoGP class. He’s also won here in 250cc (2005) and in 125cc (2003). Marc has celebrated victories here in 2013 (MotoGP) and also in 2012 (Moto2). Marc arrives in Brno 3rd in the Championship Standings on 139 points, 56 points behind Valentino, and Dani in 7th place on 80 points.

MARC MARQUEZ

It was a tough race in Indianapolis, very demanding, but I’m really happy to have taken two consecutive wins! We were able to enjoy the victory on Sunday night and now we are already on our way to Brno for the next race. This isn’t one of my favourite tracks and I’ve had mixed results here in the past but we arrive there with good momentum and we will work hard to be ready for a battle!

DANI PEDROSA

Although the result was not what we wanted, I learned some things in Indy and enjoyed the battle with Valentino. I felt more comfortable on the bike and now we head to Brno where I won in 2014. This is a track I really like and always have a good feeling there. The atmosphere is special and I hope we can repeat our performance from last year. Let’s hope the weather is good for us and we can work 100% from FP1.”
