FIM Superbike World Champion
Born on 26 June 1971 in Rome, Italy
Max Biaggi won his fourth World Championship title in the FIM 250cc Grand Prix World Championship in 1997 with a lead of just two points over runner-up Ralf Waldmann.
In 2012, fifteen years later, the Finale was without a doubt the best in history staging a fierce battle for the ultimate prize between Tom Sykes and Italian legend Max Biaggi.
The ‘Roman Emperor’ has pulled off an even greater feat by adding a second FIM Superbike World Champion title to his extraordinary record, beating second in the Championship Tom Sykes by just half a point… the shortest margin ever in Superbike history!
At 41 years old, with six FIM World Championship titles to his name earned over more than twenty years of racing, Max Biaggi is retiring in a blaze of glory.
