Bayliss to make WSB comeback

1 of 1

WSB legend Troy Bayliss has revealed to MCN that he wants to make a Superbike comeback in 2011. The three time champion retired at the end of 2008 after emphatically wrapping up his third crown, but now he say’s he could make a return to the series he once dominated and has his first test on a development Ducati 1198 at Mugello today.

The 41 year old Australian claims that despite competing in some car and bicycle races he misses the kick of racing and intends to confirm his decision either way by the end of June.

Speaking exclusively to MCN, Bayliss said:

“You’re a long time retired. I haven’t ridden a WSB bike since I retired so we’re going to knock the rust off at Mugello and see where we’re at.

“I’m saying I could come back and we’re going to have to see. It would make sense to come back with Ducati that’s for sure.”
