Portimao WSB: Bayliss on pole for final races of career
By Liam Marsden

World Superbikes

01 November 2008 16:13


2008 World Superbike champion Troy Bayliss will be on pole for the final two WSB races of his career after setting the fastest time during torrential rain at Portimao.

Bayliss was the only rider to set a time under two minutes as he took the risky decision to go out early in the session, along with Ruben Xaus and Michel Fabrizio.

Xaus was the first rider out on track and managed to post a best time of 2.03.023, before high-siding in spectacular fashion on the final corner and returning to the pits to call it a day, with only five minutes of the session gone.

Fabrizio and Bayliss then took to the track, with Bayliss putting in several hot laps in quick succesion.

With 35 minutes to go Brits Cal Crutchlow and Jonathan Rea went out on to the track. Rea immediately set a time good enough for second, until Crutchlow posted a lap of 2.01.023 - over a second faster than Rea.

With half an hour remaining the conditions started to get considerably worse and Suzuki rider Fonsi Nieto was the only man out on track for 15 minutes.

Several riders including Haslam, Haga, Kagayama and Checa then took to the track, but with the conditions getting worse by the minute they struggled to get anywhere near the times set earlier in the session.

Leon Haslam eventually qualified in sixth place, ahead of Australian Troy Corser.

Yamaha play down Valentino Rossi/Troy Bayliss WSB scrap
By Matthew Birt

MotoGP

17 December 2008 14:54


Yamaha has again played down persistent reports linking star rider Valentino Rossi with a sensational one-off World Superbike clash against Troy Bayliss.

Ever since Rossi claimed that World Superbikes was the most entertaining form of motorcycle racing at the last race of the MotoGP season in Valencia, the Italian has been linked with a head-to-head against triple WSB champion Bayliss.

Reports in Europe suggest six-times MotoGP world champion Rossi has finalised a deal with Yamaha to race Aussie Bayliss in the second round of the 2009 WSB series in Qatar on March 14.

Rossi would be available with the MotoGP season not kicking off until April 12 in Qatar, though Bayliss would have to make a quick return having only retired at the end of the 2008 WSB campaign.

But a Fiat Yamaha representative said: “Valentino has given a couple of interviews since Valencia where he has spoken of his passion for World Superbikes and how much he enjoys that series. There is no doubt that it would be a very exciting and epic battle, but there is no plan by Yamaha to let Valentino race in World Superbikes.”

After the dull conclusion to the MotoGP campaign in Valencia in late October, Rossi said World Superbikes was far more entertaining.

MotoGP » Rossi vs Bayliss in Qatar?
Thursday, 18th December 2008

Valentino Rossi and Troy Bayliss could take on one another in a Superbike race at Qatar, reports suggest.

The 2009 World Superbike Championship could begin with a bang if plans for an appearance by MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi and a return for retired WSBK Champion Troy Bayliss come to fruition.

According to a number of reports surfacing in Europe, the second round of the season at Losail, Qatar could play host to a remarkable race in which Rossi would ride a WSBK-spec Yamaha R1, while Bayliss would assume his place at Ducati Xerox for one round.

The match up is thought to have been born out of Rossi's claims that WSBK provides more enjoyable racing than MotoGP, something that is set to be reinforced in 2009 by the fact that 31 riders are already confirmed to the Superbike grid, compared to 19 for MotoGP.

According to Spanish publication Solo Moto, it also comes after Bayliss was the surprise winner of the Moto Sprint Rider of the Year award, an accolade normally reserved for Italian riders like Rossi.

Apparently frustrated to have been beaten by Bayliss, Rossi has been motivated to challenge the Aussie rider to a historic duel and reclaim his superiority.

What isn't clear is whether Rossi and Bayliss will go head-to-head or whether they will assume wild-card rides with the remainder of the WSBK field.

There has been no confirmation from either rider or team.

Ducati boss plays down Troy Bayliss/Valentino Rossi showdown
By Matthew Birt

MotoGP

16 January 2009 09:49


Ducati race boss Claudio Domenicali has said he would love to see Valentino Rossi and Troy Bayliss go head-to-head in a dream World Superbike clash.

But sadly for millions of race fans, Domenicali also doubts the one-off race between the reigning World Superbike and MotoGP world champions is likely to happen.

Rossi kicked off mass rumours at the end of last season when he said he would love to tackle Bayliss on a Yamaha R1 in World Superbikes.

"Rumours intensified that the fantasy duel would happen in Qatar in March, but the only flaw in Rossi’s plan was that at 40, Bayliss had already retired from racing having signed off his career in style by capturing a third WSB title.

There has been speculation too that Bayliss would be tempted out of retirement to take on Rossi, but he told MCN he would want £1m to take on the record-breaking MotoGP world champion.

Domenicali was asked whether he thought the battle would take place, and he said: “I don’t think so. I think for him (Bayliss) it was very difficult for him to retire. He would have loved to continue racing.

"I respect also his personal situation. He was really struggling and he had tears in his eyes when we had a dealer meeting. It’s really personally difficult for him.

"So I think he took a decision, he decided that he is 40 years old and he wanted to dedicate his time for his family. Keeping continuing to ask him and to push him to come back in the arena in my mind is not very good.”

Domenicali though did say that if Bayliss did make a request to make a shock comeback, he would give it serious consideration.

The Ducati CEO added: “If he asks us, we are available, but I don’t like too much the whole situation. Even as a kind of just a motorcycle fan, I would love seeing that.

"But I think that if you consider all the personal situation that is behind and having seen a person of 40-year-old on my side, really in a very difficult situation with tears, it hits you. And so it makes you think that there are even different values than motorcycle racing.”
