Holidays with the family for Max Biaggi

Max Biaggi has negotiated a pretty intense final month of 2003. After his visit to the Bologna Motorshow where he participated in a Supermoto race with peers from the MotoGP world, he then travelled to the three day Honda test at Valencia, where he managed to set the fastest lap-time. Now after wrapping up promotional commitments to his sponsors, he is looking forward to spending Christmas with the family at his base in Montecarlo.

"I have been really busy lately but this does not bother me much because it has been quite good fun. The test at Valencia went well for us, not only in terms of the times but also for my riding, which was fast and consistent. It was a shame that we could not thoroughly test the new front tyres from Michelin but overall the results of the three days were positive.

I was at the motorshow just before Valencia at that was a good laugh. One of the reasons was because I met up with a lot of old friends who I used to hang around the streets of Rome as a teenager. Almost all of them race supermoto now and when I cant go to watch they sometimes come to visit in Monaco and stay for a couple of days. For Christmas, without doubt, I will be with my family, with my father, sister and nephews and we will spend some time together.

I won't be cooking; I don't want to ruin the party! Instead will we go to the restaurant of some Italian friends, who compared to me, cook fantastically! At the end of the month I will be going to America. There I will enjoy some free time because there is only a short while before I have to travel to Malaysia for the first test of the year. I don't think I will stick in one fixed place in the US; I like to visit different parts of the country with my American friends. I still have not made a precise programme but my time will be spent recharging the batteries before the start of the testing calendar, which is a busy period but very important.

I would like to wish you all a happy Christmas and new year!´.

Max
