Monza Superbike on Video

Less than three-tenths of a second divided the top-three finishers of Race 1 in Monza Sunday, but Max Biaggi would hold on to take his third win of the 2010 World Superbike season, edging out second-place finisher James Toseland by just 0.247 of a second.

Arriving at the finish line just 0.05 of a second behind Toseland was his Yamaha Sterilgarda teammate, Cal Crutchlow. But it wasn’t only the top three who were running tight…Team Suzuki Alstare rider Leon Haslam finished in fourth, just 0.958 of a second behind Biaggi.

Arriving alone in fifth was Biaggi’s Aprilia Alitalia Racing teammate Leon Camier, who finished 3.535 seconds behind Haslam.

Race 2: For the second time this season, Max Biaggi doubled, taking both race 1 and 2 at Monza for Round 5 of the 2010 World Superbike season, just as he did in Portimao.

But unlike the tightness in Race 1 when the top three finishers were divided by less than three-tenths of a second, Biaggi would arrive to the checkered flag on his Aprilia RSVR 4.546 seconds ahead of Team Alstare Suzuki rider Leon Haslam.
