Racing runs in the Bayliss family with Troy and now Oliver
Troy Bayliss, three-time World Superbike Champion, MotoGP race winner and official AGV sponsored athlete has had the rare pleasure of watching his son, Oli Bayliss kick-start his very own racing career.
Oli’s rookie year competing in the supersport 300 category saw him finish a credible fourth position while also claiming a round win at Hidden Valley, Darwin. Despite Oli’s age, his father has full confidence in his son’s ability to compete in the series with Cube Racing Kawasaki.
Only recently announcing his comeback from retirement, Troy will be racing in the 2018 Yamaha Motor Finance Australian Superbike Championship presented by Motul Pirelli (ASBK) on board the Desmosport Ducati. This means the 2018 season is sure to be an exciting one, keep an eye on the father and son duo as they hunt for the championship glory.
Both riders will be proudly wearing AGV’s flagship Pista GP R, the latest 100 per cent carbon-fibre race helmet from AGV. Featuring Moto GP developed race vents, a new biplano rear spoiler, and an included hydration system, this helmet is built for the track, and the Pista GP R offers superior protection, aerodynamics and comfort while still remaining super lightweight.
