Twisted ASBK Interviews
With the current break in racing activity we thought it a good idea to start rolling out this series that I have dubbed ‘Twisted ASBK Interviews’.
This is a somewhat comedic departure from the norm that hopes to shed some light into the personalities of ASBK Superbike riders.
Some of these were conducted in person at the track earlier this year, while others were conducted more recently over the phone.
A few of them certainly got me laughing out loud and I hope you view them through the prism of good fun they were taken in. This time around it is Aiden Wagner’s turn to answer the curly ones…
MCNews.com.au: Who is the dirtiest rider you least trust when racing against?
Aiden Wagner: “Depends on what track, few fighters in the paddock that can fight really well at some different locations and not so good at others. Like to think I trust everyone around me in the Superbike class, but for a fierce fight I have had a good fight with Maxwell, obviously.”
MCNews.com.au: Who would you most like to punch in the ASBK paddock?
AW: “Whoever I am battling with at that point in time.”
MCNews.com.au: Who would you least like to be punched by in the ASBK paddock?
