Aprilia celebrates first 1-2 finish

Aprilia sporting director Gigi Dall'Igna celebrates a first 1-2 result just a year and a half after the RSV-4 made its World Superbike debut
A month after Max Biaggi gave Aprilia a fairytale result on the home ground at Monza, the Noale manufacturer is celebrating yet another landmark after securing its first-ever 1-2 finish at World Superbike level.

Biaggi's double win at Miller Motorsports Park has enabled him to snatch the lead of the standings from Leon Haslam for the first time this season, a result that also sees Aprilia move back ahead in the manufacturers' reckoning.

Furthermore, Aprilia Alitalia became the first team this season to record a 1-2 finish by virtue of Leon Camier's charging ride to second position during race two.

A proud moment for Aprilia's technical and sporting director Gigi Dall'Igna, he is confident it can be repeated in the second-half of the season.

"The first double victory in the new Aprilia SBK adventure takes on even more significance because it comes just a year and a half after the début of our RSV4. I cannot help but thank all of the people involved in this project.

“Taking two bikes ahead of everybody, ahead of very strong adversaries and manufacturers with so much experience in this championship makes us very hopeful for the rest of the season even though the World championship is still long and difficult.”

Well done. Good riding by Camier as well. Before all you posters get on and start rambling about RSV this and RSV that. Get over it. It has 2 wheels and has to be ridden to the limit no matter how long the straights or how much top speed it has. A slong as it's not a Duke, they have had it there way far to long. Hail the new contender. Go Max.
