In the front line is Max Biaggi, the Corsair, black suit and bike, who in the early days "earned" the nickname in the field for his decisive overtaking. After all, as he would say, "racing is not classical music".
Max won the Sport Production championship and then went directly to the 250 class, racking up four consecutive world championships between 1994 and 1997; at his debut in the 500 class (MotoGP didn't exist yet) he took pole position and first place in the race; he always wanted to race, always, to race to win, always, and before hanging up his boots he also won two world championships in Superbike.
Just behind, however, there's Massimiliano, Massimo for his father and his faithful uncle Valerio. A boy from Rome (and a Romanista, he would specify) who plays in the middle of his father's team, shy but good with the girls, who escapes the reproaches of his beloved cousin Fiorella because at school he is the classic "intelligent who doesn't apply himself".
Until one day he sees a friend riding a new motorbike and decides that this is how he wants to be: a knight of our times, unafraid of anything or anyone.
OL3 ("beyond" written with the 3 that has become Max's symbol) is not just an autobiography: it is the story of a difficult and life-long coexistence - the one with oneself - it is the romance of a boy who becomes a man by always going so fast that he hardly has time to notice it, it is a journey through more than twenty years of motorcycling, it is the portrait of Massimiliano Biaggi, in art Max.
