Seems like the Aprilia is built around Biaggi and when you watch it under race conditions even he has his hands full with it. Bit like Stoner/Ducati. Good luck with this one Eugene, Camier, Haga, Davis could not ride it competitively.

I think he don't like that corner very much. He crashed at the same place one year ago, maybe during Superpole.

It was a very weak weekend for him, but don't write him down yet. He scored top 5 places at the races before, and was on the podium at Assen and Monza. And yes, in front of Biaggi.

I don't think he needs to ask any other rider from these shores for tips as he was the highest placed last season, and it was his first time on a superbike and new team, and unlike the others he is riding a new bike again this season through no fault of his own. The season is young and he has already been on the podium, he will be back up there a fair few times before the season ends without doubt.
Really enjoyed watching Haslam and Lowes do us proud, and JR and Syles did very well. Roll on USA.

my heart sank when he took the aprilia ride.there is only one rider in that team that matters to them,and it aint eugene.any time he looks like going quicker tan max,something negative always happens shortly afterwards,whether its the bike slowing down mysteriously or breaking down.i just hope the aprilia experience makes him a stronger person and he can move onwards and upwards after it.
aprilia are shooting themselves in the foot though,max aint going to be around forever.
