Brno: Biaggi’s World Superbike Empire

2011 World Superbike

Max Biaggi has more than luck at Brno in the Czech Republic where round eight of the 2011 World Superbike Championship occurs this weekend.

It’s more like complete domination at Brno – the "Roman Emperor" Biaggi has been on the Brno podium 17 times since 1993 across three MotoGP classes (250cc, 500cc, MotoGP) and World Superbike. Included in this tally is an impressive 10 wins.

And for 2011, Biaggi returns to Brno aboard the Alitalia Aprilia RSV4 coming off his first win of the season at the Aragon debut three weeks ago. Besides this momentum, Biaggi had a 2-1 finish at Brno last year.

Alitalia Aprilia says Max Biaggi is 100-percent focused and in top physical condition. The hard work of the Team and the RSV4’s progress complete a promising picture; the important thing now is that Biaggi and his teammate Leon Camier are placed in a position to be able to express their full potential in this decisive phase of the season.

Max Biaggi
(Alitalia Aprilia RSV4 World Superbike) says: "It’s no mystery that I like the Brno track very much. I have many times here in all of the categories. I have a particular feeling with this track which really suits my riding style well. But the last thing we need is to think that this will be a simple weekend.

"Each Superbike race writes its own history and our rivals have also demonstrated that they ride well here – especially Ducati and Yamaha. I can say with certainty that I feel like I’m in good shape. The weekend at Aragon showed that we have in no way backed down and that we’ll work with the usual dedication right from the start, hoping to find a nice bike/tire package. I hope that the fun part of the championship is about to start."
