Ahead of this weekend's 2014 running of the Czech Republic Grand Prix, we head back 13 years to the 2001 round, one of the many classics to be held around the sweeping, undulating Brno circuit.
Coming into the weekend Max Biaggi was enjoying a resurgence against arch-rival Valentino Rossi, with the former hot favourite to add to his impressive tally of wins at Brno and the latter under pressure after struggling in the previous German GP… The outcome of the race would be seen a pivotal moment in the 2001 500GP title fight.
