Biaggi retires from racing

Six time world champion Max Biaggi has announced that he will retire from racing. The 41 year old Italian addressed a packed press conference in Vallelunga in his native city of Rome this morning where he revealed his decision to stop racing. Biaggi has enjoyed a spectacular career than has spanned over two decades competing in 250GP, 500GP, MotoGP and WSB....

The Wheely King

As said before I will never forget that. Love him or hate him he was a great racer and personality which I think helped moto GP being so popular in his heyday.He did not pander to the press and certainly didn't suffer fools gladly,all in all a great persona. I for one will miss him and wish him well in his retirement.

All the very best Max.

True legend and a great rider. For me, your return to Aprilia and two titles has been magnificent - a great last chapter to a glittering career. So glad you are hanging up the Dainese as a World Champion - you have a lovely family and wife - every happiness to you Max. Ciao Corsaro.

Congrats to Max to hang up the Leathers on a high at the age of 41. Always loved watching him and some of his bad ass attitude. As some of you guys said....Love him or hate him...I loved him, he was an entertaining rider as well as for the press.

Good to have people in this sport with a bit of an attitude, better to watch that, than some of them Stonefaced ones.

Nostro. You're as deluded as Wosi.

What rivalry did Biaggi ever have with Rossi? - In the seasons they raced together, Biaggi couldn't get anywhere near Rossi. He may have been runner up on occasion, but that result flattered the bare bones of the points haul. He was good on the 250, but in the current GP paddock, Max wouldn't have stood a chance...

Wosi.

Stoner maybe retiring at 27, but his record on the big bikes compared to Max speaks volumes. MAX BIAGGI - Starts: 127 - Wins: 13 CASEY STONER - Starts: 114 - Wins: 38.

CHR..

You're such a fanboy..got your hankies ready for Sunday?

Nobody suggested Max's record compares to Stoner in MotoGP, or that he was a better rider..

His record does however compare well with Dani's considering Pedrosa has been on a works RCV all his big bike career..and the little Spaniard who has won precisely nothing in seven years, beat Casey comprehensively this year on the same bike.

Face it Pal..Stoner couldn't back his title up on the best bike. He couldn't beat Jorge..he couldn't even beat his team mate.

Freddie Spencer was fast but flawed too..so take heart son.

Wosi, don't lose your cool..

..try and stay calm there, you'll give yourself an aneurism. I was just clearing up this ridiculous notion of both yours and Nostro's concerning Biaggi's apparent rivalry with your boy Rossi. The fact I could rub Stoner's obvious superiority on the big bikes over Max is just a bonus..

Million Dollar Max

I find most interesting that he wasn't even interested in bikes until he was 18 or so years of age, and a friend took him along to watch. Seems most the riders all started when they were 3 or 4 years old.

Luvin life..

..and as happy as a pig in shit.

Slumbering alien Rossi back on a competitive bike. No more whining Stoner fans. Seasoned commentators blaming the likes of wosi's playful harassment as the reason Stoner has turned tail and done a runner.

Aaah..Bliss.

Would love to see Stoner in the WSBK cauldron, having to battle his way through proper hard-core racers like Max has had to do for the last few seasons, taking two titles on route.

I think the aneurysm, lactose, arm-pump, book of medical ailments would have been all Casey's. Talcum powdering his bollocks wouldn't have helped either.
