Biaggi and Rossi to go head to head

Old rivalry could be revived sooner than expected...

VALENTINO ROSSI and Max Biaggi will race one another at the Sic Supermoto Day, an event arranged in the memory of Marco Simoncelli.

Top riders from Supermoto and roadracing disciplines will feature in the race, the proceeds of which will all go to the Marco Simoncelli foundation. 

The format of the competition is unusual, a team consisting of a Supermoto rider and a roadracing specialist will take alternate stints in the saddle in an endurance race lasting 58 laps.

The competition will be a largely Italian affair. Top Supermoto riders including Lazzarini, Beltrami Ravaglia, Gozzini and Verderosa will compete. Featured roadracers include Rossi, Biaggi, Dovizioso, Fabrizio, Pasini, Iannone and Scassa. 

Fans will be hoping to see some traces of the old fire between Rossi and Biaggi, as recent comments suggest that old habits die hard. 

The Sic Supermoto Day takes place on the 10th of December at the Sagittario International Circuit in Latina, Italy.
