Daniel Pedrosa was born on September 29, 1985 in Sabadell, Barcelona. From his childhood he showed great interest for motorcycling, and started practicing this sport from very young. Being only 13 he signed for his first cup of promotion, passing all the selection tests. In 2000 he participated in the Championship of Spain, teaming with Raul Jara and Joan Olivé, ranking fourth. The popular MotoGP pilot caught the attention of industry professionals and was chosen to compete in the World Championship, one of his biggest dreams. When he was only 15, Pedrosa achieved his first podium in Cheste and two more in Valencia and Motegi, being his first great season at a professional level.

The famous pilot remained in third place in the MotoGP World Championship in 2002, standing at the gates to reach the first position. In 2003 became champion in 125 D.C.
