@NikFeel
The guy who won the title deserved the Title while Marco was crashing & Sykes wasnt conserving his tires Max kept his cool and did just enough to win the championship RaceCraft at its finest!
I remember Baz winning a Race where Tom didnt push very hard..Mabey he should have..........
Must be a town in England called Italy haha

Biaggi played the racing game conservatively and won. Sometimes just scraping points here and there make all the difference. It doesn't detract from the fact it's an amazing achievement for a man past the age of retirement in racing circles.

Hopefully he'll bask in the glory,retire and start living a life away from racing with his family, having got away without serious injury.

I have it on fairly good authority from people in the racing world that there are 2 Biaggis, one you either love or hate and another that talks babies with the Haslams etc..


Anyway, FORZA MAX!

I'm not a Max fan but I say congrats to him,for picking the bike out of the kitty litter and remounting,for battling with Camier at the last meating when he didn't realy have to and finaly just for trying in race 1 today.

Hard luck Tom,stella performance this year.

Yorgi in the enemy camp, oh what stories he'll tell his team mate next year about Maxs fantastic championship battle.

@ The Bad Guy
You're right on your ideas mate, but I was just showing my personal opinion. nothing to take from max, anyway! As for the town... i'm quite sure there's no italy in england, i'm just not very keen on those nationalistic crap while watching a motorbike race.

Please please please stop all the whining about why Max shouldnt have won or why Tom should have. Max won and that is all there is to say about it. If this and if that, jeez people. This isnt horse shoes and hand grenades.

Unbelivable, what the hell is wrong with posters on here. Its either the northerners just being bitter because Tom didn't win or you are all new to bikes and just don't know much or American so definately don't know much. How can you slag off Biaggi after what he managed to do today, have anyone here ever experienced pressure, to do that at 41 is fcking incredable and goes to show he is one of the greatest riders to ever put a leg over a bike. Well done Max, always a legend.Very respectful with Tom too, class.

And pcxmac just what is that ilk?

Of course they concider bike data but not just 1, all of them, you seem to be obsessed that tyres are made to suit 1 bike like the Yamaha in Motogp.

I think you come under the paranoid demented ilk, but maybe worse than that.

Well done Max. After race 2 he showed a different side to his character, paricularly in the post race interview. I've been a fan of Max since his 250 days but now I sincerely hope that he retires to live a normal life with his wife & family. Maybe that was what he was telling his wife in their post race clinch.
