Max Biaggi continues to set new records for consecutive starts

Even though he crashed heavily in the warm-up session at the French GP, Max Biaggi managed to start the race and continue an incredible run of consecutive starts that go back 188 Grand Prix events.

Biaggi has not missed a Grand Prix start since the British GP in 1992, a record that started back in his days of competing in the 250cc class, then from 1998 in the MotoGP/500cc class. This is an all-time record for consecutive GP starts.

The following list shows the five current riders with the longest run of starts for consecutive Grand Prix events. The list includes Valentino Rossi, who has raced at every Grand Prix since he made his debut in Malaysia in 1996. Third in the list is Sebastian Porto, who has started in the last 106 races in the 250cc class.
