WSB and BSB champion Troy Bayliss has broken his back!

WSB and BSB champion Troy Bayliss has fractured his back! It happened in a horrible fall at the 450 Australian Senior Track championship.

It happened yesterday when Bayliss lost control of his bike and slammed into the boards that surround the edge of the dirt circuit.

Bayliss was competing in Aussie Senor Track Chmapionship in his home town of Taree, it was the final of the AMA Pro 450 class and the easy-going Aussie lost control of this Ducati Scrambler-based bike whilst chasing Robbie Menzies-Sargant and eventual winner Jarred Brown.

Bayliss broke his collarbone, left thumb, back and a rib in the fall.

In a tweet after the crash, Troy said: “All good, just need little rest, fractured vertebrae, rib, collarbone and thumb. Don’t bother telling me I’m too old!”

All fair enough, but one fellow glory-days competitior had one bit of advice for the injured Aussie. Italian former 125 and 250cc GP world champion Loris Capriossi replied to Bayliss’ tweet, saying: “Maybe it’s the right time to begin to just enjoy life? I’ll see you in Australia!”

Anybody think that Troy the boy will ease off? Nah, us neither.
