|At the Grand Prix of Catalunya today, Dani Pedrosa scored a strong second
place in front of 79,351 spectators, and after 19 successive podium visits, team
mate Casey Stoner missed out by less than two tenths of a second and finished
4th. It was Dani's fourth podium of 2012, the eighth in Montmeló and came as a
relief after missing his home race last year due to injury.|
Starting from fifth place on the grid, Dani made one of his stunning starts to take the lead by the first corner and set a high pace from the beginning to fight with Jorge Lorenzo until the closing laps.
Casey, who has won the previous four races held in Spain, finished fourth after a big battle holding off Cal Crutchlow behind him and missed out on third place to Dovizioso by a very small margin.
The World Champion maintains second place in the championship standings, now 20 points behind Lorenzo, whilst Dani keeps third, 10 points less than Casey.
The Repsol Honda Team will be back on track tomorrow to take part in the one day test from 10am to 6pm.
Well I doubt I will ever be brave enough to buy a conversion like this but saw these and the think they look amazing. I find that a great deal of headlight conversion often look tacky and dread it when I hear of angel or demon eyes. These however seem tasteful and do seem to suit the lines of the bike.
