OUR STORY

The DesmoSport Ducati team was formed in 2016 by the 2001/2006/2008 World Superbike champion Troy Bayliss and former Australian Superbike racer, Ben Henry. The team, based out of Cube Performance Centre on the Gold Coast, competes in the Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK) against Australia’s, and some of the world’s, best Superbike racers.

For 2021 the team expands with lead rider, and dual Australian Superbike Champion, Mike Jones alongside Superbike rookie Oli Bayliss aboard matching Ducati Panigale V4 R Superbikes.

ASBK rules result in very few mechanical changes to the standard Ducati Panigale V4 R apart from a full titanium exhaust, advanced Ohlins suspension package and advanced electronic management via a Magneti Marelli ECU.

MIKE JONES #46

Michael Edward Jones (born 25 February 1994) has graduated through the junior ranks of road racing within Australia, before taking positions in Europe in World Superstock, as well as guest rides in World Superbike and MotoGP.

Returning home, Mike has successfully won two Australian Superbike Championships, including the most recent 2019 Championship with DesmoSport Ducati aboard the Panigale 1299 Final Edition.

OLI BAYLISS #32

Son of three-time world champion Troy Bayliss, Oli (born 20 September, 2003) has progressed from Dirt Track racing into the Supersport 300 class, SuperSport and now debut’s in his Rookie season as a Superbike racer at 17 years old aboard the the DesmoSport Ducati Panigale V4 R.

A year for learning, Oli continues to impress with his eagerness to learn both on and off the bike, and is quickly proving himself in a very fast and experienced field.
