Max is Back … Part 2 (with video) – UPDATE – Max Fastest During Friday Practice

073015top-i

The fastest 44-year-old on the planet gets his second wild card of the year at the Sepang WSB round this weekend. After stunning observers by dominating practice earlier this year at Misano, and logging 2 sixth place finishes at the races there, Biaggi will tackle the grueling Sepang circuit that can leave many younger, super-fit riders dehydrated and exhausted. We are anxious to see what Biaggi can do this weekend.

July 31, 2015 Update: Just as in Misano, Biaggi had the fastest time following Friday’s free practice sessions at Sepang.

Here is what Max has to say, and take a look at the video below.

“After the dream come true at Misano, where I rediscovered the warmth of my fans and the adrenaline of racing, in the second wild card at Sepang a demanding weekend awaits. During the tests I discovered the difficulties of a complex track with extreme weather conditions, and losing precious time didn’t help. We’ll need to stay 100% focused to take advantage of every practice session. The guys on my team will be under a lot of pressure and I’ll have to dig deep to give my best. Improving on the Misano results will be no walk in the park, but it isn’t the first time I’ve faced an impossible challenge. I hope to have fun and to give Superbike fans a good show.”

      he does seem uncharacteristically relaxed and personable. I guess it’s good to be the King…? AND retired. LOL

    It’s that track infested with cobras.
