Troy Bayliss helmet guide:
Troy Bayliss has ridden with various helmet brands over the years (including Arai and Bell), but it is Suomy that usually have the key Bayliss replica helmets on the market, although Arai do put out a tribute Bayliss helmet from time to time. At the moment it is not that easy getting hold of a Bayliss replica helmet and due to his retirement Suomy are not able to put out the latest seasonal Bayliss design like they used to. However, given his legendary status it is hard to imagine that a helmet manufacturer like Arai or Suomy won’t put out a new Bayliss helmet in the near future.
Troy Bayliss Biography:
Troy Bayliss was born in 1969 in Taree, New South Wales, Australia. Bayliss started riding motorcycles around the Australian bush and eventually started competing in local motocross events. After a gap from riding, Bayliss decided to give roadracing a go in his mid-twenties and he entered the Australian Supersport championship, where he finished runner up in 1995.
Bayliss moved to the Australian Superbikes championship in 1996, and in 1997 his performances secured him a wildcard ride in the Australian round of the 250cc World Championship for the Arie Molenaar Suzuki team. Bayliss finished in sixth place on a bike that was considered to be a lesser package than many others on the grid.
Bayliss then moved to the British Superbike championship to race for Ducati, starting a long association with the manufacturer. In 1999 Bayliss beat Chris Walker to take the British Championship.
World Superbikes was beckoning and Bayliss was drafted in to replace an injured Carl Fogarty. Bayliss got up to speed quickly and won two races during the season and finished in sixth place in the standings. Bayliss stayed with Ducati in WSBK between 2000 and 2002, winning the World Superbike Championship in 2001 and finishing in runner up in 2002.
Bayliss moved to MotoGP with Ducati in 2003 and finished in sixth place in the championship standings. The subsequent years in MotoGP were less successful for Bayliss, except for a remarkable return in 2006 when he entered the final race of the season at Valencia and won.
Bayliss returned to World Superbikes in 2006 and once again raced for Ducati where he won the World Superbike Championship on two more occasions (2006 and 2008).
