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.

I've seen that look before... 14 Ducati's in my garage later and I still find myself looking at different ones like that 😂😂

That’s my boy.🤣🤷🏼‍♂️

He's eyeing off your bike the way I do when I see it 😏🤤

Be a good mentor. It is better to have friends.

Excellent Product!

Have used them for years. The hangover benefit is when you take a shot of electrolyte before bed.

Might have used them for all aspects of their uses, some more than others 😝😁🥳

Well as a non athletic motorcyclist I'll be getting some

“Apparently” 👀... 😂😂

No way you would have a hangover Mad Mike!

Mate !.. Good luck at E.C. Mike.

following a crash ! That wasn’t a crash that was a punt right of the track 😡 Next race it’s yours, you’ve got this.

Good Work

Bad luck Mike cut absolutely no slack by Wayne about as kind as I can be on that.

unlucky , but still some wins to come . so heads up , and full throttle next time . (Y)

Punted! You can see quite clearly on tv that Mike was punted.

Bugga, some bad luck there guys. It is on next round.

I never had much time for Maxwell, got even less now. They say racing is rubbing, that was not rubbing, you were taken out in a dubious move. And he gets away with it, sux!! Gaz

Smash 'em at the next round Mike. It's YOURS!!!!🏁🏁🏁🏁🏁🏁🏁🏁🏁

You've got this Mike, last round show no mercy bro😉😉

So close I could taste it but not to be, it'll help you get Madder for next round 😉

Last round's going to be a belter 🙌

You still got this Mike ✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻

that was right on the cusp of dog act from racing incident. it’s tight at the top but that move looked like it was on purpose. no quarter asked or given in the final round. go get em Mike Jones !!

Look at the precident set in WSBK with Jonathan Rea and Lowes this year. Jonathan knew he did the wrong thing and showed remorse. I saw the visit to the pits of WM. Enough said.

You can do it!!!!!!!!

....what!!!! No penalty???😠😠😠

Yeh Mikey boi

Bring it home Mike Jones 👌💪

Great team. Well turned out amateur team.

The only thing worse than no penalty was having to watch a D grade telecast. The whole presentation is terrible. Is this the best we can do in Australia..
