Max Biaggi with Alstare Corona Extra in 2007

Max Biaggi will race a GSX-R1000 in world superbikes in 2007

Though Max Biaggi has been ousted from MotoGP, he’s coming back to motorcycle racing in 2007. Max has signed an agreement in Alleur, Belgium, with the Alstare Corona Extra team, to ride a Suzuki GSX-R1000 in next year’s World Superbike Championship. Biaggi is said to be fit and motivated and has already asked to test his new Suzuki GSX-R1000 K7 as soon as possible.

Said Max, “I have known Francis Batta [Alstare Corona Extra team manager] and his family for years and have a lot of respect for him, as he has devoted so much time and attention to promoting the profile of the World Superbike Championship. I am back in competitive sport and I am happy to be riding for an official team. I am as determined as ever and really want to win the Superbike World Championship. This is probably the biggest challenge of my sporting career."

Batta said, "Max Biaggi is definitely a valuable addition to my team and to the world of Superbike. I have enormous trust in his capabilities and know that his desire is to become the first Italian rider to win the World Superbike Championship."

We wonder what Rossi & Co. would have to say about Max’s move to WSB…
