(born 1 April 1951
) is a Swiss
racer. He is known not only for his seven FIM Sidecar World Championships
and 81 Grand Prix wins, but for his experimentation and innovation with new types of machine, like the TTM, the BEO and the LCR
. His success was not limited to Grand Prix tracks, as he finished second at the Isle of Man Sidecar TT
at his first attempt. Biland was instrumental in the development of the Swissauto V4
engine and won his last world title with it.
Biland retired from sidecar competition and became team manager for the Muz 500 team in 1999 and renamed it Team Biland GP1. The team had some success but failed to secure a sponsor and folded at the end of that year.
Biland now runs Karting events in Switzerland.
