Biaggi feeling confident ahead of 2012 season

Max Biaggi sets his sights on championship glory in 2012 following an occasionally troublesome 2011 title defence campaign.
Max Biaggi says he will be coming into the 2012 World Superbike Championship feeling more determined than ever after being unable to defend his title last season.

The Italian, who was a dominant champion in 2010, enters into his fourth season with the Aprilia Racing team this year keen to make amends for a 2011 season that yielded only two wins and saw him finish comfortably adrift of champion Carlos Checa.

Coupled to an injury that sidelined him for three events towards the end of 2011, Biaggi is looking to put that year behind him and look forward to a more successful 2012 campaign.

However, while Biaggi is confident he will be a force this season, he is aware that the competition amongst his rivals is likely to increase.

"It doesn't matter how many seasons we have under our belts and how many titles we've won. At the beginning of a new season I am always motivated to the maximum. Besides that, I must say that for 2012 I am even more focused on the task ahead, after what happened last year.

“I'm sure we can still play an important part in this Championship but at the same time I am aware of the fact that the level of competition, with the many team changes among my rivals, has increased even more. We'll have to work hard and never stop growing, but I can assure you that this year once again, everyone will have to deal with us.”

Said it before and Ill say it again this man has motorbike flowing through his blood. He gets a real bad time in our press but read his comments hear, this isn't an arrogant man, this is a guy who respects and appreciates how good his rivals are but instead of shying away or quitting he gets even more motivated and prepare for attack, incredable. He could have easily took the Foggy route when actual competition arrived in his championship the difference is Max still knows he can win, Foggy knew the game was up. Go on Max without characters like you modern bikes would be a boring place.
