Image result for Troy BaylissWith the countdown on for the opening round of the 2018 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship, there is plenty of anticipation in the Australian air as three time WorldSBK champion Troy Bayliss prepares to make his return to racing from the 23rd-25th February, in the Australian Superbike Championship.

Hitting the age of 48, Bayliss is coming out of retirement to compete in the 2018 ASBK championship with Ducati. As the season opener is held alongside the WorldSBK opener at the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit, Bayliss is attracting a lot of attention with his upcoming debut.

Speaking to former rival and fellow Australian Troy Corser, Bayliss explains: “I want to be fast enough to be up the front in 2018 and anything else after that will be a bonus. There could be times when I feel really good on the bike and take a podium, but I want to see the bike up the front – that’s the main thing.”
