Bayliss Pours Cold Water On Comeback
Troy Bayliss has now decided to remain permanently on the sidelines and has knocked a potential world superbike comeback on the head.
Although he hasn’t lost his mojo — the three-time world superbike champion set the fastest time in a recent Ducati test at Misano — the 41-year-old won’t rejoin the title that has made him a legend of the sport.
“I have made up my mind and I won’t be coming back to the racing but I will undertake one more superbike test later this year, just before the Imola SBK round, as agreed with Ducati at the start of the season.”
Riding a ‘development’ Ducati, Bayliss was the fastest rider on track at Misano, ahead of world superbike incumbents Michel F
abrizio and Noriyuki Haga.
