The 2010 World Superbike Championship was wrapped up with a win for new champion Max Biaggi
at Magny-Cours after an exciting duel between himself and Cal Crutchlow
However, while the last race of the year is supposed to be one of celebration, things didn't quite end on a high note after the heated exchange on track spilled onto the podium.
The argument was seemingly prompted when Crutchlow sprayed champagne over Biaggi – who had been suffering with a cold all weekend -, the pair having a few words at the side of the rostrum – in full view of the crowds below - before a bit of elbowing also ensued.
The whole incident has gone some way to overshadowing the final race of the season, though Crutchlow has told Crash.net
that his part in the fracas was not done with malice.
