And the season would keep fans on edge until the very last lap when Aprilia Team’s Max Biaggi took a fifth-place finish to take the title. His finish earned him the half of point needed to take the 2012 World Superbike title from Kawasaki Racing’s Tom Sykes, who won race 2 in Magny Cours.Throughout the year, Biaggi only won five races out of 28. But it was just enough to keep the title away from Sykes and the other rider who had a mathematically chance at Magny-Cours – BMW Motorrad’s Marco Melandri, who took third overall.The 2012 title was Biaggi’s second in World Superbike, and sixth in his world motorcycle racing career.And with the year came many great photographs of the 41-year-old Italian. Attached above are five shots of Biaggi, highlighting his title-winning year. To read more on Biaggi’s title-winning year, click here.Click motorcycle thumbnail to expand.
