Biaggi unsure of Imola fitness

"I cannot assure you of anything except the fact that I will fight to be at Imola" - Max Biaggi.
Injured reigning World Superbike champion Max Biaggi is far from certain that he will ride in front of his home fans at Imola on September 25, but has pledged to do all he can to regain the necessary fitness.

The Aprilia star saw his title hopes effectively end when his foot was broken by debris during practice at the Nurburgring, ruling him out of the remainder of the weekend.

"The pain of the fracture is a bit better only from [Wednesday]. In fact the fracture was [displaced] and I knew it would be more difficult than expected," Biaggi wrote on his personal website.

"I am working all day, I am doing important therapies and I am trying to do small movements.

"But the thing is more complicated than expected. Time is short and the difficulty will be huge... but I will try with all my strength. I am so looking forward to go racing again!

"This week will be important to make progress in recovery and I put my soul to be at Imola. I cannot assure you of anything except the fact that I will fight to be there."

Biaggi is now 95 points behind title leader Carlos Checa - and 21 points from Marco Melandri - with three rounds and 150 points remaining.
