Biaggi criticises Rea claim

"It would seem that Rea thinks he was right and that I caused the crash... crazy stuff!" – Max Biaggi.
Reigning World Superbike champion Max Biaggi has advised Jonathan Rea to 'admit his mistakes' after denying that he caused the collision between them on lap one of the opening race at Miller Motorsport Park.

Both riders were eliminated in the unseen clash, with Rea visibly furious at Biaggi as the pair trudged from the track.

Rea then made his feelings crystal clear by Tweeting "That looked promising until I got Simoncelli'd!" - a reference to the aggressive move by MotoGP rider Marco Simoncelli at Le Mans, which resulted in a ride-through penalty for bringing down Dani Pedrosa.

The Ulsterman later elaborated in the end-of-day Castrol Honda press release, in which he described the incident with Biaggi as follows: "I was the victim of a very intimidating attempt at a pass that went wrong and we both fell down."

Having apparently read such comments, Aprilia star Biaggi felt he had no choice but to respond.

"I have overlooked the [first race] incident because it was fairly obvious how the fall happened. But after, reading here and there, it would seem that Rea thinks he was right and that I caused the crash... crazy stuff!" Biaggi wrote on his official website.

"However I feel to give him a suggestion, hopefully he will accept it: 'Sometimes recognize your mistakes make you grow and make you be estimated also by your colleagues'."

Biaggi finished third in race two, with Rea crossing the line in eleventh.

No. I think it was purely a racing incident. But Rea should have admitted it instead of whining and blaming. Simoncelli tumbled Pedrosa in a chicane but this happened in a corner.
