(translated from Italian)
"I'm not going to Phillip Island and do not ask me why, I will not tell. "The three-time World Champion, Ducati now retired (in the photo with our recent test of the Flavian Atzori 1199), wishes to defect to Australia in the WSBK career he has won six times, most recently in 2008 . After it had always come as a mere spectator and PR for the brand which was tied to his successes.
Bayliss seems that in recent days has quarreled with the local organizers of the event . The reason is unclear but it seems that Troy wanted to advertise his commercial initiative and instead of having doors opened and the red carpet under his feet, they instead asked a lot of money. So the legend would have announced his intention not to come to Victoria.
I wonder if in the next few hours the same Bayliss will unravel the mystery. And maybe if, overcome by nostalgia, he will look back and take the plane from Melbourne to Surfers Paradise.
