Biaggi hails Aprilia after 'perfect result'

Biaggi praises his Aprilia team after securing his third and fourth wins of the season at Monza.
Max Biaggi has revealed he changed his bike between races but was still able to achieve the same result as he romped to a second double World Superbike victory of the season at Monza.

A perfect result for rider, team and title sponsor on home turf, Biaggi may have led for all but three laps over the course of the day, but he was still required to soak up pressure applied by a number of rivals.

Nonetheless, Biaggi was faultless on both occasions to complete a memorable performance on the RSV-4, which in turn made headlines this weekend for being the fastest Superbike ever recorded in a straight-line.

It was a result he dedicated to his team, which in turn now lead the way in the WSBK manufacturer standings.

"Race two was the fantastic conclusion of an exceptional weekend,” Biaggi, who also started on pole position, said. “If anyone had ever asked me to think of the perfect race, the result would be very similar to what happened today.

“I must thank the team, there is great understanding and affection with the guys, everything functions wonderfully and we work well.

Biaggi even went on to reveal that he changed his bike for the second race because he wanted to 'gain more feeling'

“After race one I wanted to gain a little more feeling. A risk, because usually you don't change the winning bike. Instead, we found that we were right and the modifications allowed me to make the difference. My compliments also to Leon Haslam and Troy Corser who also contributed to the great show here at Monza"

Biaggi's perfect points haul has enabled him to close the gap on Haslam to three points with the next round at Kyalami coming up in less than a week's time.

The top speed of the Aprilia certainly does help a lot, but the most important aspect is Biaggi's ability to maintain consistent clean lines, which makes it difficult for the rivals to overtake.
