Qatar WSB Results

Former MotoGP star Max Biaggi (Suzuki) took the win today in his first ever WSB start, in Race One of the season opener in Qatar. Biaggi finished over a second ahead of second-place James Toseland (Honda), with Lorenzo Lanzi (Ducati) another 12.5 seconds back.

Toseland struck back in Race Two, taking the lead early and opening up a small gap as Biaggi fought his way forward from fourth place. Despite a valiant effort, Biaggi crossed the finish line .7 seconds behind Toseland in second place. Troy Corser (Yamaha) finished a distant third, 7.3 seconds back.

With Biaggi and Toseland each taking a first and a second, they leave the opening round tied for the championship points lead.
