    Troy Bayliss: Working Class Hero


    Right now, somewhere, there is a twenty-three year old street rider who will try his hand at club roadracing for the first time.... On the drive home from the racetrack after a particularly successful weekend, perhaps while stopped at a red light, his battered van filled with a bike and camping supplies, this 23 year old club racer will let his mind wander. 'Wouldn't it be something if I could turn this into career, get noticed by the factory and get a factory ride? Turn that into a factory World Superbike ride?' he'll think to himself.

    I posted a link to this profile once before, but I notice it has popped up again on the superbikeplanet website. A great read.

    great story.. i knew that he started late, because he is a fair bit older than most riders out there, but he is definately a charismatic guy.

    . . . a great read indeed! Nice to see the bigger picture, not just a crash or a podium here and there . . .
