Biaggi focused on race day results

The Italian was three tenths faster than Marco Melandri, though he will have Carlos Checa for company on the front row at Brno.
Max Biaggi is taking nothing for granted ahead of the two World Superbike Championship races at Brno, despite claiming only his fourth career pole position.

The Italian romped to the top spot with an impressive lap during SP3, Biaggi putting three tenths between himself and fellow title contender Marco Melandri. Though Biaggi has an excellent record at Brno, this is the first time he has started from pole position around the circuit in any discipline since 2002.

Furthermore, while Biaggi has so far started six races from pole position since joining the Superbike ranks, he has converted only two into race wins (at Monza in 2010). As such, though Biaggi was delighted with the result, he is concerned only about the races.

"Obviously I'm very pleased to start from the front and also to have made a really good lap," the Aprilia rider said. Evidently, along with my team, we have adapted well to the track's extremely fickle conditions. I'm also pleased for the many fans that I have here and for the many who have followed me to be here. But, as always, what really counts are the results tomorrow.

“That is a job that still must be done. I won't delude myself. There are two very long and difficult races ahead of us tomorrow. There are many variables which can affect our performance tomorrow and the weather, which I'm told is uncertain, is the one I'm least concerned about.”
