Biaggi Aprilia SBK
Max Biaggi’s return to Aprilia SBK in 2009, the marque with which he had won three consecutive world championships in the MotoGP 250 cc class from 1994 to 1996, carried many high expectations. Now the 2010 Aprilia WSBK Team is looking forward to seeing the results Biaggi can bring home, in light of a debut season that demonstrated both the potential of the motorcycle and the ability of the Roman rider to steer its development and take it to the top of the leader board, right up to the team’s fist World Superbike win at Brno.
Noriyuki Haga Speaks… (2nd , 1st)
In Race 1 I really enjoyed myself, it was a fantastic race. I didn’t make the best start and then it took a lot of laps before I was able to pass Max. Once I got past him I realized I didn’t have many laps left in which to catch Ben; if I’d had just one extra lap, I think I’d have won. On the last lap I was waiting for Ben to make a mistake and when he did so, I managed to get up alongside him but unfortunately the next corner worked in his favour and he got past me.
Yamaha rider Leon Camier has added another championship title to Yamaha’s 2009 collection. A win in the first race of the British Superbike Championship at Silverstone yesterday gave Camier his 17th victory of the season and enough points to take the championship title.
