Biaggi: “It's not just luck, Rossi deserves the title”

Biaggi: “It's not just luck, Rossi deserves the title”

Max Biaggi chatted to La Gazzeta dello Sport about how he feels his arch nemesis Valentino Rossi deserves to lift the title...

The ‘Roman Emperor’, as Biaggi is known, has never enjoyed a good relationship with Rossi over the years even after they stopped racing. It hasn’t exactly been helped by Biaggi’s high profile friendship with Rossi’s teammate, and currently his closest rival, Jorge Lorenzo. Therefore it may have come as a shock to some to hear Biaggi so encouraging: “If other people are faster than you, you have to make use of all of your experience and skill at your disposal. At Silverstone for example, the rain helped him but he could have crashed. It is not just luck, Rossi deserves the title.”

He went on to say that while he would not want to predict the outcome with so many points still up for grabs, “My heart says Jorge, my head Rossi.” He also went on to state that the final five races are something, “No fan should miss!”
