Book Description

1 Aug 2014
In his first book, three-time World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss offers a master class in advanced sportbike riding techniques. Sportbike Riding From the Top Down will help nearly every serious rider - from newcomers working to improve their performance and safety on the road to experts trying to make the most of their next track day. This is the first instructional riding book written by a professional of Bayliss's stature and experience. Joined by fellow rider and author Andrew Trevitt, Bayliss explains key physical skills required for effective riding at any level, as well as sophisticated techniques for maximizing performance at the track. Includes a foreword by Paolo Ciabatti, boss of Ducati's MotoGP team.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instruction from a great world champion 12 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback
Troy Bayliss achieved an extraordinary record of roadracing success over a long career that started in his native Australia and ended on the world's premier podiums based on his skill and courage. He took three World Superbike championships and a surprising end-of-career win in MotoGP (Valencia, 2006, flag to flag) that delighted his fans.

Though Bayliss rode many different machines over the years, his name became associated most strongly with Ducati and his achievements on this great Italian marque. He richly deserves the publisher's lavish treatment here, working with the fine writer Andrew Trevitt, formerly of SPORT RIDER, who worked with Bayliss over Skype in preparing the book. The foreword is by Paolo Ciabatti, who now heads the Ducati Corse race program and brought Bayliss in.

This great big (9 X 11) book is basically a rider's instruction manual, a companion to Nick Ienatsch's book from Bull Publishing. Bayliss covers the rider, visual skills, selecting optimal corner lines, steering, braking, body position, throttle control, reference points, mental and physical considerations away from the track (or road), rain and extreme conditions, bike setup and racecraft (especially valuable for up-and-coming racers). Every page is packed with insights and anecdotes. It's like having the author at one's side, guiding and helping.

Bayliss comes across in the book just as he is in person: strongly positive, gregarious, fun-loving, disciplined as a professional, direct in his approach, openly willing to share his techniques in detail. This track-day rider's and racer's book will also help road riders who want to be fast and safe.

This track-day rider's and racer's book will also help road riders who want to be fast and safe. It is lavishly illustrated with outstanding photographs that include many of the great riders of Bayliss' period, such as Mick Doohan and Noriyuki Haga, and effective diagrams, for example a computer trace of throttle position, brake application, speed and gearing at the great Phillip Island track in South Australia, and cornering lines in different types of turn.

All the publisher's traditional production values are evident, making for an outstanding reading and learning experience.
