Learning Racetracks, With Dani Pedrosa And The Honda RC213V-S

Here’s some eye candy for you: Honda’s MotoGP bike for the street, the RC213V-S, the picturesque Red Bull Ring in Austria, and Repsol Honda riders Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa ripping laps in their Alpinestars Tech-Air Race suits as they learn a new circuit on the MotoGP calendar. And speaking of Pedrosa, listen in as he narrates a lap of the track from memory.

We all know riders of this caliber have remarkable riding talent, but a less appreciated skill these riders have is their ability to learn new tracks quickly. Beyond just learning the track, they are able to dissect each section, noting elevation changes, camber, road imperfections and more – all from memory – in order to properly setup their motorcycle. It’s an amazing feat, and one Pedrosa accomplishes with ease. So come along for a guided lap of the Red Bull Ring with Dani Pedrosa below.
