To celebrate, The Ducati Museum has a new exhibition entitled: Troy Story: The Legend of a Champion. It was way back in 2000 that Bayliss – still pretty much unknown – was drafted into the WSB squad to replace the injured and later retiring Carl Fogarty.
In 2001 – his first full season – he took his first of three WSB titles, taking 15 podiums along the way.
The machines he used in his time in WSB included the Ducati 996 and 998R, the 999 and 1098R factory machines – all are present in the exhibition.
