Skiers in swimsuits take to the slopes at ”Boogelwoogel” carnival

In his first competitive racing since he retired in 2012, Biaggi was in charge with a time of 1'35.684s finishing 0.47s clear of Chaz Davies in second. 

Early in the session the Italian looked every bit the complete package and always looked like he has more in reserve.

Kawasaki rider Jonathan Rea came in third fastest with a time of 1'36.201s.
