Pedrosa Pulls Out Of US Grand Prix Laguna Seca

America's leading motorcycle racing website, Superbikeplanet.com, is reporting that Dani Pedrosa was spotted getting into a car and heading out to San Francisco airport, on his home. It looks like Pedrosa will take no further part in proceedings.

UPDATE : Pedrosa's withdrawal has just been confirmed by Spanish television.

Pedrosa broke bones in his right ankle and left wrist when he crashed out of the lead in the Sachsenring. His participation was in doubt all week, and it was brave to even attempt it, but the grimace on Pedrosa's face just pulling on his gloves told you all you need to know about how much pain he was in. With Casey Stoner and Valentino Rossi clearly faster than the rest of the field, Pedrosa is likely to enter the next race at Brno with a serious points deficit in the championship race.
