Pedrosa #2

Pedrosa becomes number two.

Friday, 8th February 2008

Dani Pedrosa will drop the #26 and ride with the #2 on the front of his Repsol Honda for the 2008 MotoGP season.

Pedrosa finished second in the 2007 world championship, with two race wins, and - according to a statement from the team - has made the number change as part of a tradition 'which dictates that a rider bears the number that reflects the victories obtained during the previous twelve months'.


uhmmm, what?

Yeah, I don't understand all the # changing crap. The reasoning they give sounds stupid and they talk more about him having been #2 than the 2 wins and I've never heard of such a tradition. What if 4 people had 2 wins?

Mladin is also changing his from 66 to just 6 though I haven't heard if there was a reason behind it. My guess is it's just him being a tool and wanting to remind people that he's a 6 time champ.
