Gazzetta: Biaggi acknowledges Rossi’s achievements

La Gazzetta dello Sport has published quotes from Max Biaggi in which the Italian discusses the legendary rivalry he had with Valentino Rossi when the pair competed in MotoGP. “We’re adults now and it’s time to recognise one another’s achievements, and perhaps to realise that his have been better,” said Biaggi during a ceremony in which he received a Bronze Medal from the Mayor of Rome, Gianni Alemanno.

Biaggi also said the pair’s rivalry had “fed itself and had been positive for the sport, both in Italy and on the world stage. Now we ride in different championships, and we aren’t adolescents any more. There’s no sense in letting it run on.”
