Biaggi: Races are a dilemma

Max Biaggi wants to see an entirely wet or entirely dry pair of races at Monza after changeable conditions in Superpole.
Max Biaggi says he hopes conditions remain constant for the two World Superbike Championship races at Monza after changeable weather created a number of headaches during Superpole.

The local favourite, who was a double winner aboard the Aprilia RSV-4 at Monza in 2010, has endured a mixed weekend thus far, showing decent practice pace, though errors, including a costly fall towards the end of FP2, have hampered him.

Nonetheless, Biaggi remained competitive during a wet-to-intermediate Superpole, even if he admits the evolving conditions became difficult to adapt to during the short top eight shootout session.

Eventually securing sixth on the grid, Biaggi was satisfied to make it onto the second row, but is now hoping for either clear wet or dry races.

“Superpole was difficult today,” he said. “First there was a small technical problem, possibly stemming from the crash in the last free practice session, and then the asphalt conditions made life difficult. We got into the top eight using rain tyres, but they deteriorated quickly on these long straight stretches.

“We tried with the intermediates but it was very difficult. In spite of everything we're on the second row. Tomorrow is still a dilemma, I only hope that the conditions remain consistent and that they let us ride without apprehension.”
