Yeah, it can't have been easy having a talent like Rossi arriving just as he was hoping to repeat his 250 results in 500's, and I think Rossi is an absolute master at winding Biaggi up so he looks like a pr@t.

Feel pretty sorry for the way things have ended for him in Moto GP (however much he might have been the architect of his own demise). It would be good to see him doing well in WSB (particularly if he's on a Duke), but will his style work well on a superbike

ooh now there's a surprise Ducati are short of cash, Biaggi has Camel funding him, their millions of euro could probably run all of Ducati Corse It looks like yellow might be the fastest colour in WSB next year

"but will his style work well on a superbike?"

In my opinion yes-Max is the archetypal 250GP rider-all corner speed and absolute precision. Dukes like that, the 916 when it was first released, (and by definition the 999 since it is very similar in terms of size and layout) was stated to be based on a 250GP bike in terms of size and handling-all corner speed, he should go well.
As to whether I think he should be there and will Ducati Corse be able to handle him and his well known tantrums-that's another matter-but-they are an Italian team, and he's Italian so if anyone can sort him they should be able to.
The Camel money would be pretty handy as well I think................
