Biaggi expects tight battle at Aragon
Max Biaggi reckons he won't have it all his own way at Aragon this weekend, saying he expects the fight to be "extremely tight."
Biaggi dominated last time out at Misano with the Roman Emperor taking the double to extend his lead in the Championship to 38.5 points over Jonathan Rea.
But while his clean-sweep may have been sweet for the Aprilia rider, he believes his rivals will be out for revenge this weekend in Spain.
"The Misano races left a nice memory," said Biaggi.
"The team is working well and I'm more focused than ever, even though the tests last week didn't go as we'd hoped, so we'll have to get the most out of what we have to work with.
"Those who were unlucky at Misano will certainly be eager to redeem themselves, so I expect the qualifying sessions and races to be extremely tight, where small details and motivation will make the difference."
Meanwhile, reigning World Champion Carlos Checa, who has dropped to fifth in the standings, is eager to make up ground this weekend.
However, in the past, Aragon has not always been kind to the Spaniard.
"We had chance during WDW to work a little on the settings of my 1198 to be as prepared for this weekend's Aragon races as possible," he said.
"It's always good to race at home and I hope that the fans' enthusiasm help me to make two great results.
"Last year didn't go to plan here and so, although it won't be at all easy, I hope to make up for that now at this important point of the Championship."
