They often say the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree, this is certainly the case within the Bayliss family.

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 4th position whilst 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, be sure to 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% carbon fibre race helmet from AGV. Featuring Moto GP developed race vents, a new biplano rear spoiler, and an included hydration system. Built for the track, the Pista GP R offers superior protection, aerodynamics and comfort whilst still remaining super lightweight.
