Biaggi: "Racing in California is always magic"

Just like his American team-mate Nicky Hayden, Max Biaggi has previous experience at the Laguna Seca circuit, the host of the eighth round of the MotoGP World Championship this weekend, the Red Bull US Grand Prix. The Italian took second place in the 250cc race in 1994 on his way to his first of four consecutive 250cc world titles.

"I have a distant memory of Laguna Seca, but the feeling is good, it means I liked it," commented Biaggi. "I remember that the track was pretty small, tight and thus very technical. But it was not well kept at that time. The pits were tents - like in a camping site. I had never seen anything similar before." "The new bikes are more powerful than ever, so it's supposed to be fun riding down there. I hope that the safety conditions have improved much more, because this was the real weak point of this circuit. Anyhow, racing in California is always magic. I like racing in front of the American public. It would be the perfect scene to come back to a good result ."
