#3 is Max Biaggi…..he is a past multi time MOTO GP champion (which is like the F1 of motorcycle racing). Carlos Checa (the guy who won the 2nd leg) is also a past Moto GP rider.
These world super bike riders are either on their way up to MOTO GP or on their way back down the ladder.
MAX won the WSB championship two years ago, Last year Checa won…largely because Max had a horrible year with DNF's, mistakes and injuries.
Checa is an incredible rider in his own right…I mean the guy had a 110 MPH get off in race one then came back to win the 2nd leg….so, hey….try that on for size. There are NO small mistakes in road racing!
