PICS: Biaggi and Crutchlow's podium 'fracas'

Max Biaggi and Cal Crutchlow 'celebrate' on the World Superbike podium at Magny-Cours...
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.

The incident was duly caught by our snappers, so to make your own conclusion simply scroll down and view the full set of photographs…
