The Repsol Honda Team wants to seal the Triple Crown in Valencia before saying goodbye to Dani Pedrosa

The Gran Premio de la Comunitat Valenciana will be an emotional event for Dani Pedrosa, his numerous fans around the world and paddock friends in the MotoGP community. The three-time world champion announced that he retired from the German GP as a Honda driver after 18 seasons in Grand Prix racing earlier this year.

Dani, one of the most successful riders of all time (eighth on the All Time Wins list), will be inducted into the MotoGP Legends Hall of Fame in Valencia on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Marc Marquez visited the Honda booth at EICMA in Milan, Italy last Tuesday and then traveled to Spain to celebrate his seventh world title with a great party in his hometown of Cervera.

Next Sunday the squad will try to seal the team championship and win the MotoGP Triple Crown, having already won the Riders Title in Japan and the Constructors Title in Malaysia.

The Repsol Honda Team achieved four double podium positions on the track where Pedrosa (last year’s winner) was the most successful driver: 2013 (Pedrosa 2nd, Marquez 3rd), 2014 (Marquez 1st, Pedrosa 3rd), 2015 (Marquez 2nd, Pedrosa 3rd) and 2017 (Pedrosa 1st, Marquez 3rd to win this year’s world title).
