Dani Pedrosa was born in Castellar del Valles, a small village near Sabadell in the province of Barcelona, Spain, although he now lives in London. He is the youngest world champion in the 125cc and 250cc Grands Prix classes.

At the age of four, Pedrosa got his first motocycle, an Italjet 50. He got his first racing bike, a replica of a Kawasaki, at the age of six but it wasn't until he was eleven before he experienced real racing. Pedrosa entered the Spanish Minibike Championship in 1996, finishing the season in second place. In 1997 he entered the Championship again and finished third. He won the Spanish Minibike Championship in 1998.

Pedrosa briefly toyed with mountain bike racing due to a lack of funding, when a friend learned of the Movistar Activa Cup in 1999. Pedrosa entered and, in his first race on a geared bike and on a circuit, finished the race in eighth place. He was selected as one of three riders for Alberto Puig's Team.

In 2000 Pedrosa took part in the 125cc Spanish Championship with the Movistar Junior Team. He managed four finishes (from six races), took four pole positions and finished in fourth place overall.

In 2001, Pedrosa was promoted into the 125cc World Championship. He managed to take two podiums for third places (in Valencia and Motegi). Despite his lack of experience, he battled at the front. He finished in eighth place overall in the Championship.

Pedrosa finished third in the 125cc Championship in 2002.

The following year, in 2003, Pedrosa clinched the title in Malaysia with two GPs remaining. He took a total of five victories and six podium finishes. Unfortunately, just one week after his victory he had a bad accident during the practice session for the Australian GP. The bad accident left Pedrosa with both his ankles broken.

Pedrosa moved into the 250cc class in 2004. In his rookie season he became the 250cc World Champion in Australia, and the youngest racer in history, at the age of 19, to win the title. He only finished off the podium three times all season, twice in fourth place and a crash at Jerez.

Despite struggling during some wet races and several crashes, Pedrosa was able to retain his title in 2005. He won the Championship with two rounds remaining.
Having won three titles in a row (125, 250 and then 250cc) Pedrosa remained with Honda and moved into MotoGP for 2006. He started the season strongly, taking second place in his first race and his first win at Shanghai. A low came from Pedrosa when, with an outside chance of the title, he crashed into his team mate, Nicky Hayden, at Estoril. Hayden had been leading the Championship and the crash meant that he was overtaken by Rossi, on the Yamaha, with one round remaining. Under intense scrutiny, Pedrosa vowed to help Hayden win the Championship. As it transpired Rossi crashed during the final race and Hayden was able to comfortably take the title, relieving the pressure on the Spaniard.

For 2007 Pedrosa was again teamed with Nicky Hayden in the Repsol Honda garage on the new capacity 800cc MotoGP machines. On the smaller machines Pedrosa was deemed one of the favourites before the start of the season but, in truth, the Honda never really delivered. The Spaniard was able to snatch second position from Rossi at the final round by taking the win but, along with everyone else, he played second fiddle to an utterly dominant Casey Stoner on the Ducati.

2008 would again see Pedrosa lining up on the Honda together with deposed Champion, and team mate, Nicky Hayden. It was a season of ups and downs. By Assen, round nine of the Championship, he had been on the podium in all but one of the races and he lead the title race by four points from Rossi. The next round, at the Sachsenring, was a turning point. On a wet track Pedrosa flew into the lead from the start and by the end of the first lap had amassed a stunning two second lead. Rather than hold the position he continued to pull away at the front and within six laps he had a seven second lead. Unfortunately for the tiny Spaniard he was obviously pushing too hard and he lost the front of his Honda, crashing heavily into the gravel. The subsequent injuries meant that he scored no meaningful points until Misano, three races later. By that time he had dropped to third in the title race and with Rossi starting a run of six victories in seven races the Championship was out of sight.

Eyebrows were raised when Pedrosa switched from Michelin to Bridgestone tyres mid-season but he was able to adapt to the change very well.

2009 sees Pedrosa remain at Repsol Honda and be joined by Dovizioso, replacing the departed Nicky Hayden.
