Biaggi: SBK remains my priority.

Despite failing to secure a full time ride in the 2006 Corona Extra World Superbike championship, ousted MotoGP star Max Biaggi has confirmed that a place in the production based series remains his priority.

Biaggi looked close to clinching a last minute Alstare Suzuki WSBK seat, after the last doors closed to him in MotoGP, but those negotiations also broke down - apparently because some the championship winning team's suppliers were 'unable' to back the project.

Nevertheless, WSBK - including title sponsor Corona, which also backs Alstare Suzuki - knows Biaggi's presence would add yet another significant boost to their 'reborn' championship and the Roman continues to be linked with a wild-card ride at his home Monza round on May 7.

"Currently I'm training with my Supermotard bike, something that you know I really enjoy," Biaggi told his official website. "I can confirm the idea that SBK remains my priority, I know that there is the willing from the organisation to have me on the starting grid and I hope that this happens soon so I can meet again my great supporters in the circuits all over the world."

Biaggi won 13 500cc/MotoGP races during a premier-class career that lasted from 1998-2005, having previously won 29 GPs - on his way to four consecutive world titles - in 250cc.

I have no doubt that he could run up front and win some races...

well Barros is a gentleman, and he's not nearly as insecure as biaggi is. Barros knows what he has, know's who REALLY won the 2002 suzuka 8 hour, and doesn't need to beat his chest over how great he is.

uh...little late to secure a WSBK ride isn't it??

i'm almost feeling sorry for him now. he's still a fast rider, just needs to check his ego at the door and keep his yap shut about the the bike sucking. no dude, it ain't always the bike. it's the guy riding and setting it up.

I'd bet $5 he'll crash out... he's got something to prove and doesn't exactly perform well under pressure.

this is bad, sinc I'm actually somewhat a fan of his.
