Biaggi Valencia - blog.jpgMAX Biaggi powered to his second double of the year in the second World Superbike race at Monza, slashing Leon Haslam's championship lead to just three points.

The Roman Emperor rode another inch-perfect race, and was left with a clear lead to the finish line after an unlucky Cal Crutchlow saw his Yamaha Sterilgarda go up in smoke five laps from the end.

Haslam crossed the line second, just ahead of Troy Corser who gave the BMW Motorrad Motorsport team their first WSB podium.

The Parkalgar Honda rider rode the perfect race to lead HANNSpree Ten Kate's Kenan Sofuoglu over the line, with series leader Joan Lascorz third.

But this time it was championship leader Noriyuki Haga who suffered a nightmare race - not only did he drop from the lead to 15th in less than a lap, he suffered a massive crash on Lap Three taking him out of the race.

The firey Brit converted pole to P1 as he crossed the line almost three seconds ahead of Joan Lascorz and Fabien Foret.

But it was bad news for Eugene Laverty, who had been lying third. Just two laps from the end, the Durham-based Irishman was held up when Lascorz forced him wide, allowing Crutchlow's Yamaha team-mate Foret through. Laverty was forced to settle for fourth.
