Re: Mad Max retires from WSBK

Am I the only Biaggi fan here

He was exceptional in 250, good in 500's but Rossi was a in a different class altogether. He's had a heck of a run with Aprilia in WSBK.

As with everything else, time will move on and there will be another almost like him, but never the same.

I'm a fan of Biaggi Rooted for him to win WSBK. I'm actually sad to see him go personally.

Not at all... Talent aside, Max is very cool in person...
