Biaggi extends title-winning partnership

Biaggi will be joined by Leon Camier in an unchanged rider line-up for the Italian manufacturer.
Aprilia has announced that newly crowned World Superbike Champion Max Biaggi has penned a new contract that will keep him with the team for the next two seasons.

While it was anticipated that Biaggi would always re-sign with the Italian manufacturer, a delay in him put pen to paper had raised speculation about a possible decision to retire as champion.

Nonetheless, Biaggi quashed tose rumours by confirming he will race for another two seasons with Aprilia.

It means he will return to defend his WSBK title following his dominant performance in 2010 on the RSV-4, a title tilt that saw him win on ten occasions.

"I'm obviously very happy to be continuing this winning adventure in World SBK with Aprilia" he said. "After an exciting but tiring season, after many years of racing and many victories, it was only natural and right to stop and think, to reflect on such an important future commitment.

“In my considerations a very decisive factor was, as it was at the beginning of this adventure with Aprilia, the fact that I feel so close to a team and a company which is so capable and so focussed on the sports objective.

“Now we need to prepare as best as we can for next season. We are well aware that we cannot rest on our laurels and that we will be in all of our rivals' sights. But now I am also sure that we will be highly motivated at the start of the first race, with a bike which I have brought up and which I did not want to abandon, ready to die hard... extremely hard".

Aprilia will progress with an unchanged rider line-up in 2011, with Biaggi being joined again by Leon Camier.

Oooh booh, boooh, booooooooh! He wanted more money, booooooh. Can you believe it? Somebody who just became champ wanted more money. That moaning bitch Biaggi, there is always something... Get a life. Get some balls, go to your boss and ask him for more money. If you have the qualities he won't let you go. If your work is so sucky as some of the comments here, he won't.
