Max Biaggi MotoGP test confirmed

"At the moment, this is the extent of the arrangement... Michele Pirro will substitute for Ben Spies at the Catalan Grand Prix"
Pramac Ducati has officially confirmed that former MotoGP star and newly retired World Superbike champion Max Biaggi will test for the team at Mugello.

The full team statement, released on Wednesday morning, reads:

“Max Biaggi to test Pramac Racing Team's Ducati Desmosedici for two days at Mugello

“Max Biaggi will take to the track aboard the Pramac Racing Team's Ducati Desmosedici GP13 tomorrow for a two-day test at the Mugello circuit in Tuscany, Italy.

“The four-time 250cc Grand Prix World Champion and two-time Superbike World Champion will ride the bike of Ben Spies, whose on-going shoulder problem forced him to withdraw from the race this past Sunday and from the Ducati MotoGP test planned for this week.

“The Pramac Racing Team, along with Ducati, therefore decided to let Max try the Texan's bike, which had already been prepared for the test.

“At the moment, this is the extent of the arrangement, and Ducati Test Team rider Michele Pirro will substitute [for] Spies on the Pramac Racing Team bike at the Catalan Grand Prix on 16 June in Barcelona.”

Biaggi left MotoGP at the end of the 2005 season, sat out the whole of 2006, then made his WSBK debut in 2007.

@ Changes at Pramac Do you even watch racing? Look how Rossi suffered in 2011 at the hands of a shoulder injury. As many people have said, a shoulder injury is the one injury you can't ride around. And I don't blame him, it must SUCK being in pain every time you ride. As for last year, I wouldn't blame him for his heart not being in it... Riding to the point where you throw up in your helmet mid-race and then being told to not bother rocking up for the next race if you aren't gonna ride harder? WTF!
