Hard-fought fourth for Biaggi

Repsol Honda's Max Biaggi took fourth at Laguna Seca yesterday after an intense race which saw him battling with Honda factory colleagues Sete Gibernau and Troy Bayliss.

"It was a good race. Surely we could have stepped on the podium this time, but it took me too long to pass Bayliss, who was slowing me down," explained Biaggi, who had stepped on the podium at Laguna Seca back in 1994, but in the 250cc class.

"So I lost the touch with the head of the race. I'm sorry because I got a good start, going from seventh to fourth place. I also liked the duel with Gibernau, tough but always fair. Well, I had fun. Today I really want to congratulate my team-mate Nicky and his guys. He was simply perfect throughout the weekend. Bravo Nicky!"
