Pedrosa dismisses KTM link

Repsol Honda rider Dani Pedrosa has rejected suggestions that he is in talks with KTM regarding a partnership in 2017.

KTM will return to MotoGP in 2017, and Pedrosa has been linked with a move to Austrian team. However, speaking after Friday's free practice ahead of this weekend's race at Misano, the Spaniard asserted that there is no substance to such reports.

Asked by if there had been any contact between himself and KTM, Pedrosa replied with a resounding "no". 

The 29-year-old has spent his entire MotoGP career with Repsol Honda, having joined the team in 2006.
