Biaggi should walk out on top, he's got nothing left to prove. He's come full circle. I actually like the guy these days.

This was the most profound statement in that article!

Quote:
But don't forget that Dorna always was threatened by the larger grids and more exciting races of World Superbike in recent seasons, and the dumbing-down of WSBK will let Dorna firmly cement MotoGP as the unthreatened pinnacle of worldwide motorcycle road racing without spending a penny in promotion or engaging in a costly PR war with the Flammini brothers.

Leave it to Ezpeleta to fuck up a good thing! Me thinks Biaggi retired at a good time!!

edit: Maybe Roger Edmondson was hired as a consultant?
