A Sit Down With: Lorenzo and Pedrosa live this Thursday!

Jorge Lorenzo & Dani Pedrosa will be the guests on MotoGP™ Live: A Sit Down With this week to talk about one of the great MotoGP™ rivalries

This week on ‘MotoGP™ Live: A Sit Down With’, we’re joined by two of the all-time MotoGP™ greats  – Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa. The pair will be live for the hour on Thursday, June 25th, from 17:00 (GMT+2) to discuss their era-defining rivalry: how it started, the famous King of Spain inspired handshake at Jerez in 2008, they’re greatest battles and how they reconciled to become friends. 

In what will no doubt be unmissable viewing, the two Spaniards will open up and reflect on their intertwined World Championship careers, which resulted in a cumulative 122 Grand Prix victories and, of course, eight World Championship crowns. Plus, the pair will discuss life after fighting for MotoGP™ titles as they both now enjoy testing roles for KTM and Yamaha respectively.

You can join the conversation too by tweeting your questions for either Jorge or Dani to MotoGP™’s Twitter account and by using the hashtag #MotoGPLive.

You can watch it live and for free on motogp.com or now across all of our social media platforms from 17:00 (GMT+2) on Thursday, June 25th.
