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.

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.

A race of hiccups and controversy. Being declared a wet race, what would've happened if someone went out on wets? Congratulations though, we'll done👍

Well done DesmoSport team, Mike Jones great effort guys

Onya Mike a win is a win

Hope Mike wore Thermals!!! Great riding by everyone that stayed Upright, special mention to Alex Phillis off grass tracking through puddles on grass at 160km/h on slicks and not going down. Definitely not envious!!
