Biaggi stretches away with double success

The Italian increases his advantage to 37 points over Leon Haslam after completing his seventh and eighth victories of the year.
Max Biaggi has heaped praise on his Aprilia Alitalia team after notching up wins seven and eight on home soil at Misano, the Italian significantly inflating his series lead in the process.

Giving Italian fans something to cheer about in the week it was surprisingly dumped out of the Football World Cup, Biaggi delivered what was expected as he fought off Carlos Checa in race one before dominating race two.

While he confesses to perhaps pushing too hard on the way to a crushing victory during that second race, Biaggi – who proceeded to air his delight by launching his helmet into the stands on the warm-down lap - insists he is feeling at one on the RSV-4.

"In such a tough and well balanced championship,” he said. “All of the victories are earned with hard work and sweat. In race two, to be honest, maybe I rode... pushing the envelope a bit, maybe even risking too much. But on the other hand, without risk there is no gain!”

Attributing the success to his Aprilia 'family', Biaggi dedicated the double victory – his second in Italy this year – to the team.

“This race represents a crucial moment for us and for our season we are coming out with our heads held high. As always I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart: from the guys on the team to our supporters.

“Victories like this never happen by chance and these ones in particular are well deserved by a large family which works together toward a common goal."

With key rival Leon Haslam only managing a second and eighth in comparison, Biaggi has more than doubled his WSBK lead to 37 points.

Max in WSBK, to me, is a lot better than the Max in Moto GP. He seems to have mellowed,personality wise - and tamed his imperious demons - while professionally, he has blossomed into a more complete rider. In effect he is riding better in his maturing years than he was when he was a young, fiery pup.
