Biaggi returns to World Superbikes
Max Biaggi will be back in the WSBK paddock this season but as a commentator, not a rider.
The Roman Emperor claimed his second World Superbike Championship last season when he beat Tom Sykes to the title by a mere 0.5 points.
It was a fitting conclusion to an impressive career from one of the more controversial but loved figures in two-wheel racing.
However, Biaggi's days in the paddock are not yet over as the 42-year-old has joined the commentary team for Mediaset's new Italia 1 and Italia 2.
Mediaset recently bought the rights to show the WSBK Championship as well as Supersport and Superstock races.
Biaggi will be joined in the TV team by Giulio Rangheri, Guido Meda, Luca Budel and Alessio Conti.
