Biaggi looking forward to Brno return

The Italian has an exceptional record around the flowing Czech circuit, including 17 podiums there since 1993.
Having made significant inroads into Carlos Checa's World Superbike Championship lead at Motorland Aragon, Max Biaggi feels he has a good opportunity to claw back even more ground at Brno.

Winning his first race of the season last time out at Motorland Aragon, Biaggi has strengthened his status as a title contender, though he still remains a fairly sizeable 43 points off Carlos Checa's series lead.

Nonetheless, Brno is a historically successful circuit for the Italian, Biaggi notching up three 500cc/MotoGP wins there during his tenure in the premier class, while the Czech venue was also the scene for Aprilia's first victory with the RSV-4 in 2009. Furthermore, Biaggi has finished no lower than fourth in any Brno WSBK race.

With this in mind, Biaggi, who won a race at Brno last season, is looking forward to getting out on track and challenging for honours.

“It's no mystery that I like the Brno track very much. I have many times here in all of the categories. I have a particular feeling with this track which really suits my riding style well. But the last thing we need is to think that this will be a simple weekend. Each Superbike race writes its own history and our rivals have also demonstrated that they ride well here – especially Ducati and Yamaha.

“I can say with certainty that I feel like I'm in good shape. The weekend at Aragon showed that we have in no way backed down and that we'll work with the usual dedication right from the start, hoping to find a nice bike and tyre package. I hope that the fun part of the championship is about to start.”
