Italian TV for the World Superbike championship.

The comments came at Donington Park when the Italian was asked about rumours linking him to wildcard rides within World Superbikes before the year is out. Early gossip suggested Biaggi could be back at Monz, however as Monza came and went it became clear the rumours were just that. Talk both in the paddock and on social networking has suggested a one-off return to Aprilia or a longer deal with Ducati in attempt to see how the Italian fares on the somewhat struggling Ducati 1199.

Biaggi said: “I don’t know if you’ll see me for all the championship because I don’t know if I can stand because it’s tough. I’ve just finished my motorcycle career but I do have too much time off! I decided to quit on 7th October and that was my last race and if I want to keep going I have to come to a ready time, it was my own decision not because I didn’t have a seat so yeah, maybe in the future if something really tempts me but at the moment I am feeling very relaxed and my mind is completely open to other things, not only motorcycle and I really enjoy what I’m doing but maybe in a few months or few years who knows.”
