Troy Bayliss starts looks like being his World Superbike season in chasing a third world on Ducati’s brand new, 1098R.

Bayliss began motocross and dirt track in his of Taree when he was six and that in the hard knock world of off-road riding forged his track style — is a fighter who never gives than everything.

Bayliss begin road racing he was 23, making him a very late in a sport where most riders have been on on tarmac tracks in their early years.

But it is perhaps time on loose dirt that give him his all-action No matter what the bike is underneath him, TB (as he is known) the throttle open and lets the sort itself out.

spending two years riding in the contested Australian 600cc where he finished second in Troy switched to the domestic series, and finished second in 1997. He then made a to the UK and rode a Ducati to sixth in the Superbike Championship, before the title in 1999.

This performance earned him a at World Superbikes and he finished in his first global season winning the series in 2001. But fans remember his WSBK most fondly for the head-to-head with his great rival Edwards in the 2002 season, Troy lost out to Edwards by a 11 points after 26 races some of the closest, hardest of recent years.

Bayliss spearheaded Ducati’s MotoGP with Loris Capirossi and a solid debut at Suzuka in scoring a fifth place. The race at Welkom in South showed the MotoGP regulars a hard rider he is when he for the lead with World Rossi, giving no ground and the Italian with a determination astonished those who had never him in action before.

Troy finished sixth overall in his year on an untried machine with three podium — and missed out on the Rookie of the title, to Nicky Hayden, by two points.

With one MotoGP season his belt, great things expected of Troy for 2004, but the Bayliss/Ducati combination did not function as as expected and tensions in the team ran Bayliss finished only 5 of the 13 races as his on-the-edge style with the new Desmosedici GP4 and it was soon that Ducati would not be his contract for 2005 — Marlboro favourite Carlos controversially lined up as his replacement.

Honda seized the moment to the no nonsense Aussie and, the ink was dry on the contract, Bayliss again his talent with a rostrum on his final race for Ducati at Valencia, Spain.

That like being Troy’s MotoGP podium since despite some initially pre-season testing performances the Australian ultimately struggled to a set-up for the RC211V that his riding style. A sixth at one would be repeated at round the US GP, but Bayliss believed he had found a breakthrough during testing the Czech Republic Grand (round 10 of 16).

Unfortunately Troy would get the chance to ride an RCV again badly breaking his wrist a motocross accident shortly — an injury that rule him out for the rest of the season.

a top MotoGP ride unlikely for Bayliss accepted Ducati’s of a return to their factory Superbike team — to try and the crown lost to Alstare Troy Corser — and was back at the top of the testing timesheets.

it was Corser that took the championship advantage with forced to wait until the race of the season — the race of his home Phillip event — to take his victory of the year. Thereafter he was unstoppable, winning eight in a row to open up a huge points as the second half of the year A fall at Misano ended his win and two non-scores produced some drama, but ‘Baylisstic’ was still to claim four more before the season was over and the WSBK riders’ crown in of Ducati’s home fans at the Imola round.

But an unforgettable season had one last, twist when the awesome was called up by the Ducati Marlboro to replace the injured Sete in the season ending Valencian grand prix. Bayliss a low profile prior to the event, but outqualified team-mate Capirossi to second on the grid (behind Rossi) — then on to dominate the race for a sensational (and last) MotoGP

Turning his attention back to Bayliss was unsurprisingly tipped to be the man to again in 2007, but his 999 — now in its season of racing and almost from the year before was struggling against the performance of the four-cylinders.

Nevertheless, Bayliss back from a poor round to record 1-2 race in front of his home fans at Island, but then suffered a accident while leading one at Donington Park — him with an amputated little and a very painful ‘groin

A podium on his return at Valencia Troy’s undisputed toughness and he on to record his second win of the season by out title leader James for victory during a brilliant two battle at Assen (round

Hopes of a sensational championship were fuelled further by wins in a row during the mid-season, but and Brands Hatch (rounds and ten) saw that dream as Bayliss fell in two of those races and was only sixth and in those he did finish.
