Pedros to announce retirement on Thursday from Sachsenring
I know Madbuyer hates the guy but it truly shows how narrow minded Embee is.
Quote from an article in Roadracing world.
"Over his 18 years in Grand Prix racing, Pedrosa has amassed some staggering numbers, 54 race wins and 153 podiums among them. Only six riders (Giacomo Agostini, Valentino Rossi, Angel Nieto, Mike Hailwood, Jorge Lorenzo, and Marc Marquez) have won more Grand Prix races than Pedrosa, and winning two 250cc World Championships in two years in the class (2004 and 2005) ranked him among the greatest quarter-liter riders.
Like long-time rivals Rossi and Lorenzo, the longevity of Pedrosa’s success has been truly unique. By winning last year’s Spanish Grand Prix at Jerez, he became the first rider in history to win at least one Grand Prix race in 16 consecutive seasons."
I think that puts him in some pretty rarified company. So go ahead Embee.... crap all over him ya big Puss!
