Victories for Biaggi, Iddon at Simoncelli Supermoto

Max Biaggi and Mauno Hermeunen win main Simoncelli Supermoto race - Christian Iddon victorious in MotoGP vs. WSBK event.
Former MotoGP and WSBK star Max Biaggi emerged victorious during the annual charity Supermoto race at Latina, in memory of Marco Simoncelli.

Competing in pairs for the 58 lap endurance event, the distance matching Simoncelli's race number, Biaggi and team-mate Mauno Hermeunen won by 40s from Ducati MotoGP star Andrea Dovizioso and Thomas Chareyre. WSBK's Leon Haslam and team-mate Luca Minutilli completed the podium in third.
Prior to the main race, a special MotoGP vs WSBK contest was held, which saw Biaggi and Haslam joined in the WSBK team by Christian Iddon and Niccolò Canepa. Representing MotoGP were Dovizioso, Mattia Pasini, Niccolò Antonelli and Matteo Ferrari.

Dovizioso took pole position, but former Supermoto champion Iddon got the better of the Italian by just over one-second in the race, with Biaggi a close third.

Dovi is class, and a MotoGP star (as well as the 'best' MotoGP star taking part). According to what the fans believe then, Dovi is and must be head and shoulders above any other riders from any other series (and Biaggi should be well past his prime at 43). So how can supposedly unworthy and inferior riders compete with ANY MotoGP star, let alone a podium regular talent like Dovi? Hmm - you don't think it just might be that, if you take away all the electronics and governance deciding just who gets what performance (MotoGP/WSBK), that there's an awful lot more highly talented riders out there than the results tell you? Fans ought to think about just how exciting MotoGP & WSBK Racing could be, if all this riding talent was unleashed without most of them never being given the tools to compete with.

@TF2. You are talking about different disciplines. Iddon came from Supermoto. A BMX rider would not be competitive in a Tour De France race. It was a 1 off oddball race and I doubt that they were risking everything, especially considering that Dorriano Romboni died there last year.
