Repsol Honda Team prepare for the sixth round of the 2016 MotoGP World Championship in Mugello where Dani Pedrosa, who has just renewed his contract with Honda for an additional two years, celebrates a milestone achievement this weekend as he makes his 250th Grand Prix appearance.

Over the fifteen years following his debut race in 2001 at Suzuka aboard an Honda RS125R, Dani Pedrosa won 3 World Titles (1 x 125cc – 2003, 2 x 250cc – 2004, 2005) and achieved more podiums for the Honda Factory than any other rider, with a total of 142 including 51 victories (8 x 125cc, 15 x 250cc, 28 x MotoGP).

Both him and teammate Marc Marquez are ready to work hard with their respective crews this weekend to achieve a good result at the fast, flowing Italian track set in the rolling hills 30 km north east of Florence.

Marc scored his first GP win in career at Mugello, in 125 in 2010, and the following years saw him victorious also in Moto2 in 2011 and in MotoGP in 2014. In 2015 Marc crashed out on lap 18 of the race while fighting for second position after an amazing recovery from 13th on the grid while Dani scored a solid 4th place, his best result at that point of the season. Dani has scored eight podium finishes in Mugello including two victories, in MotoGP in 2010 and in 250cc in 2005.
