Aprilia set to re-sign Biaggi, Camier

Biaggi pens a new contract as he edges closer towards a first-career title since 1997.
Max Biaggi looks set to remain at Aprilia in World Superbikes for the next two seasons after signing a two-year extension to his current contract.

Biaggi is well on course to win the 2010 title having notched up nine wins so far this season, the 39-year-old accumulating a 60 point advantage over Leon Haslam with three rounds remaining.

Only his second season aboard the RSV-4, which made its WSBK debut in 2009, Biaggi has found a good home in Aprilia, the manufacturer with which he won three of his four 250GP titles.

With the deal set to coincide with title sponsor Alitalia's contract coming to an end, Gazetta dello Sport is reporting that Biaggi will remain with the team in World Superbike until the end of 2012.

Additionally, Leon Camier is almost certain to be retained in an unchanged line-up for 2011 having impressed in his rookie season this year.

Yamaha fcuked up by not retaining Leon, instead preferring a washed up and mentally fragile Toseland..Aprilia are a better long term bet and who cares if he's regarded as No.2 behind Biaggi..If he gets the nod I can see him pushing the pirate all the way next year.

The team let Leon off the leash for the second race as they had seen he had the pace, whereas Max didn't. He repaid them by getting on the podium and taking points off Max's main championship rival, Leon Haslam.
