Dani Pedrosa will line up in Spain

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.”
