Biaggi at Home for Monza Superbike

2011 World Superbike

The historical Monza Circuit created many memories for Max Biaggi during his championship-winning World Superbike year.

During the 2010 WSBK Championship, the Alitalia Aprilia rider took a double-win before 115,000 fans at his country’s track; the double victory was the foundation for Biaggi’s title, which was the first won by an Italian, and the manufacturer’s title.

Biaggi is now hoping that the track caters to the agility of the Aprilia RSV4 will deliver his first win in the 2011 World Superbike Championship; Biaggi needs the win to recover some points lost in the last few rounds.

Max Biaggi (Alitalia Aprilia RSV4) says: “This Championship is a no-holds-barred battle. There is no room for mistakes because you pay a high price for each and every one. The first three races are enough to prove that. We know that we can be competitive at Monza, but the extremely high level of our rivals must not make us lose our focus.

“We need to recover points and we have plenty of potential to be able to do so, even the Assen round showed that. We are racing with the number ‘one’ on our fairing so our objective can be nothing less than victory. Racing in Italy in front of my supporters will obviously give me a little more charge: I’m sure the Monza fans will give us a warm welcome and my fan-club will make it an even more special weekend for me, as they always do!”

Heading into Round 4 of the 2011 World Superbike Championship at Monza, Biaggi has 89 points, 43 behind the leader, Althea Ducati’s Carlos Checa.
