Biaggi: There are still a lot of points at stake

Biaggi now leads Haslam by 68 points with four events to run on the 2010 calendar.
Max Biaggi insists there are 'still a lot of points at stake' as his hopes of wrapping up the 2010 World Superbike Championship received a major boost at Brno.

With four wins on the trot helping him first overhaul Leon Haslam at Miller Motorsports Park before pulling 37 points clear at Misano, Biaggi has now gapped his rival to 68 points after a win and second place finish in the Czech Republic.

Despite this, the Aprilia Alitalia rider is playing down title talk, pointing out there are still four rounds, eight races and a maximum of 200 points still to play for.

“The guys [Aprilia] support me and believe in my indications, and this is confirmed by our results,” he said. “There are still a lot of points at stake, so I won't look back and I'll continue to stay focused race after race. That is the winning philosophy."

A tenth career win at Brno for the Italian, Biaggi followed up his second place finish in race one with a resounding triumph in the second, the Italian owing his upturn in pace to revisions on the suspension and gearbox.

"After the second place in race one I was satisfied anyway, even if – to be honest - I expected the maximum on this track. And so it was in the second race: we made some changes to the rear suspension and the gearbox which, as it turns out, worked well.

“After being behind Rea for a while, I realised that I was faster and I overtook him. From there on, I just pushed it to the limit without thinking about tyre wear and the track proved me right. I want to thank my team.”

Remember him finishing third just behind Rossi in 2005 after starting from 16? spot, making a bad start and struggeling all weekend right at this circuit. Picking one position at a time and clinched a impressive podium position, witch nobody would have thought was possible just before the race. Max Biaggi is an absolute f#"!# legend....

The guys support me and believe in my indications, As well they should with the massive amount of experience Max can bring to a team. And I am sure Max would love to stuff it to Honda in MotoGP on a Aprilia GP bike but I think that's asking too much..
