Biaggi targets another Miller double

Max Biaggi looks to repeat his Miller Motorsports Park double victory in an effort to get his 2011 title dreams back on track.
Max Biaggi heads to the fifth round of the 2011 World Superbike Championship at Miller Motorsports Park looking to repeat his double victory at the circuit last season.

The Italian took a crucial step towards the 2010 crown with victory in both races, even if the wins could be considered somewhat fortuitous following Carlos Checa's retirement from the lead on each occasion.

Keen to get his 2011 title campaign back on track after a frustrating race day last time out at Monza, Biaggi is hoping for a repeat performance in the United States this year.

“I have very good memories of the Miller track," the Aprilia Alitalia rider said. "The double win last year took us to the top of the standings and was probably the first important step toward bringing home the title. I've always enjoyed racing in the United States. There are a lot of fans and they make their welcome presence known.

“On top of that the track is very technical, with guided sections where it is very important to find the right compromise in the bike's set-up. For this reason we need to start off right away on the right foot: from the first practice session to the last race, we need to be 100 per cent focused.”

Biaggi is currently third in the overall standings, 28 points off series leader Checa.
