Max Biaggi is looking forward to beginning a new chapter in his career as he embarks on his first World Superbike race with the Aprilia team.
A return to the manufacturer that helped him on his way to MotoGP success more than a decade ago, Biaggi will be entering his third World Superbike season with a third different team.
However, Biaggi insists the start of the 2009 season will mean more to him than it did in 2007 and 2008 as he is doing it with a team that has built its project from scratch over the last few months.
With that in mind, Biaggi is looking forward to the opening round of the season at Phillip Island and is confident the team will come good as the year progresses.
“The start of the season for me is different to last year and the year before that, because nothing was there when I started this new project with Aprilia. We had to make everything happen, and now we are trying to build this together.
“We have strong ambitions and want to try to make things happen this year. I love my team, they are great people, I pushed for them to come with me and be in the same team as years ago.”
