2011 Brno World Superbike Saturday Round Up - The Heat Is On

With Max Biaggi on pole for tomorrow's World Superbike races, normal order has been restored. The Czech circuit is Biaggi's favorite track, and the extra horsepower of the Aprilia RSV4 comes into its own round the fast and hilly circuit - much, much steeper in real life than it looks on the TV - which added to the bike's agility, makes it a formidable package. So coming out on top in Superpole - with a masterful lap at the start of the final session - is exactly what you might expect at Brno.
