DESMOSPORT DUCATI TROY BAYLISS #21

TROY BAYLISS TB21

Troy Bayliss (born 30 March 1969 in Taree, New South Wales, Australia) is an Australian motorcycle racer. During his career Bayliss won the Superbike World Championship three times and a MotoGP race, all with Ducati. He finished his career after winning the 2008 World Superbike title. His 52 World Superbike victories are only behind Carl Fogarty and Jonathan Rea.

BRIEF HISTORY

Various riders have won the hearts of the fans and enthusiasts during Ducati’s history, but one in particular is universally known as the “darling” of the modern-day ducatisti: Troy Bayliss.

Troy Bayliss arrived in Superbikes at a late stage, winning the British Superbike championship on a Ducati in 1999, when he was already 30 years old. In 2000 he was beginning a new season in the American AMA series when he was unexpectedly called to Europe to replace Carl Fogarty, seriously injured at the 2000 Australian GP. Bayliss’ first race as a substitute rider for Fogarty was not a lucky one as he was involved in two accidents at the start of the race. The rider did not lose heart however and at the Italian grand prix of Monza he would amaze the crowds with a series of breath-taking passes; that same year Troy would score his first Superbike race win at Hockenheim in Germany.
The “Baylisstic” star was born.

Troy Bayliss, over the course of his rather brief career, won the Superbike rider’s title in 2001, 2006 and 2008, riding three different Ducati bikes, the 998, the 999 and the 1098. In 2003 Bayliss moved to MotoGP, lining up alongside team-mate Loris Capirossi, and at the end of that season Troy was named “rookie of the year”.

2004 did not bring the same luck as the previous year and, after an average 2005 with Honda, he decided to leave MotoGP, returning for the Valencia race of 2006 as a substitute for the injured Sete Gibernau. That race became part of history because Troy, fresh from winning the Superbike title, got back on the Desmosedici and ran rings around his rivals to score his first and only MotoGP race win.

2018 ASBK RETURN

The wheels of his comeback were set in motion in mid-2017 when DesmoSport’s regular ASBK rider Callum Spriggs was sidelined with a lingering shoulder injury — although the lure of a maiden ASBK title amid the championship’s resurgence meant Bayliss’ arm needed little twisting.

“It was a situation we first considered when Callum was injured,” Bayliss explained. “Obviously, it was a big call and it didn’t quite feel right at the time.

“Since then, I have tested the bike and completed a lot of miles both in practice and racing the 300 class.

“Initially, I did want to see another young guy on the bike but after I rode it, I felt that I needed to contest the championship and try and win myself the elusive Australian Superbike title.”

He will be the oldest and most experienced rider on next year’s ASBK grid, and would be the oldest rider to win a national Superbike championship anywhere in the world should he claim the 2018 title.

Go mad Mike gluten free like me 😂

Mike i like your style,but i am pissed at Jack its frustrating to watch him Marc always kills himself to win Motogp Ducati riders always it appears tyre selection.You on the other hand have the killer in you.Respect for you!

A guy to be admired. Can ride ok . I most admired his MotoGP ride at PI going faster & faster every session. My other admirable moment was the character building moment of his bike playing up at Morgan Park ASBK round when we were bouncing to see him win. Another, his World SuperStock season getter further up the front with results to boot. Last one, the ride at MP from turn 6 mistake to 3rd listening to the crowd cheering on louder as the laps closed in . A wonderful journey to cheer on so far. Looking forward to much more fun.

And he certainly does that....

He's pretty quick on a pushy, too...

Of course he does 😂

He also loves a Big Mac.

Will also steal all your gluten free snacks

He may have accidentally won a championship on it too 😂😎😎🏁🏁🏁🏍️🏍️🏆🏆

And is a complete boss

Rip it up Mike💯

“Gentleman”😎

👍

Mike always has a smile on his dial.

Go Mike

😂😂😂

Good onya Mad Mate Mike

...and he would like Mick Flower to take his V4r for a ride around Phillip Island race circuit. What? Bloke can try...

Looking tanned

Or an add for eHarmony 😂

Sounds like a tinder profile

Go Mike! I was wondering if there was a noticeable handling difference with the reverse turning crank on the V4 compared to the V2?
