One day after his 27th birthday, Dani Pedrosa gifted himself a victory at the Aragon Grand Prix —ahead of Jorge Lorenzo. The latter took the early initiative, with Pedrosa slotting in behind him on the opening corner.
From then on, both extended a gap ahead the rest of the field, until Pedrosa made his attack on lap seven.
The Repsol rider quickly extended an advantage of a few seconds which only grew after a scare for Lorenzo and Pedrosa’s storming pace. He took the chequered flag with a lead of over six seconds.
With this result, Dani Pedrosa reduces the difference in the title standings to 33 points. Teammate Jonathan Rea improved upon his eighth place finish from Misano with seventh today.
