Biaggi Retires!



This just in from Aprilia:


Aprilia Racing and the Piaggio Group wish to thank Max Biaggi on this, the day when he has announced his retirement from racing, for his extraordinary contribution to the world of sports and the Aprilia image.


From the first championship title he won in 1994 in the 250 class to the Rider and Manufacturer titles won this year on the Aprilia RSV4 in World SBK, Aprilia's history in competitive motorcycling has been inextricably connected to the Max's efforts, winning unforgettable victories and becoming the only Italian rider to have ever triumphed in World Superbike. Max won five of his six world titles astride bikes from Noale in addition to winning 41 races and riding his way to 43 podiums: he is without question the most victorious Aprilia rider ever, as well as one of the greatest players in motorcycle sports on a global level. The Piaggio Group extends warmest wishes of happiness and success to Max Biaggi in his personal endeavours and in any new professional activities that he may undertake.

NOOoooooo, not MAX! Max with an F U attitude??

Honestly I hope Dorna doesnt pull a NASCAR/AMA move in WSBK.

Congrats to Max. I used to hate him but as we have both aged I have grown to like him. Best of luck to him.
