Max Biaggi Testing the Ducati Desmosedici GP13 MotoGP Racer
Max Biaggi has completed his first day of testing on Ben Spies‘ Pramac Racing Ducati Desmosedici GP13 at Italy’s Mugello circuit. No lap times were released so we don’t know how the recently retired two-time World Superbike Champion fared compared to the lap times posted by MotoGP racers at the same track at last weekend’s Italian Grand Prix.
What do have are these images of Biaggi on a GP racebike for the first time since 2005 when he raced for Honda. The last time Biaggi rode a Ducati racebike was 2008 when he raced for the Sterilgarda Go Eleven WSBK team.
The first day of testing was cut short due to rain but Biaggi is expected to ride again tomorrow if the weather cooperates.
