After his retirement from MotoGP at the tender age of 33, it was unclear what Dani Pedrosa's next move would be. Now we know, because KTM just announced that Pedrosa will be suiting up as its Red Bull KTM MotoGP team's test development rider.
Pedrosa had a pretty great racing career with over 30 MotoGP wins, three world titles, and 110 MotoGP podium appearances. That's nothing to sneeze at. His experience should prove extremely beneficial for the four riders—Pol Espargo and Johann Zarco riding for the factory team and Miguel Olivera and Hafizh Syahrin on the Tech 3 team—who are riding for Team Orange next year.
“I’m super-happy that we could reach this agreement with Dani," said KTM's MotoGP team manager. "Thanks to all his years and success in MotoGP I believe he will help our project in a big way and in developing the bike. Dani is a three-time world champion and three-time runner-up in this category and I know him well from the time working together. He is still very competitive and this can only benefit our MotoGP effort.”
