Old Bike Australasia - - EYES RIGHT / READING AND WATCHING -

The 2014 Troy Bayliss Clas­sic will go down as one of the all time great dirt track events in Aus­tralia. Never be­fore had such an ar­ray of mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing stars from nearly ev­ery dis­ci­pline fronted the starter’s gate to­gether and fit­tingly it was the man who started the event – three-time Su­per­bike World Cham­pion Troy Bayliss – who took the top prize ahead of Troy Her­foss and 2013 win­ner Mick Kirk­ness. The sec­ond run­ning of the TBC saw Amer­i­can dirt track leg­ends Sammy Hal­bert and Henry Wiles both make the long flight to Old Bar on the NSW mid-north coast, with Hal­bert tak­ing the fight right up to lo­cal boy Bayliss. Other leg­ends rac­ing the TBC in­cluded Su­pers­port World Cham­pi­ons Chris Ver­meulen and Karl Mug­geridge, Mo­toGP race win­ner Garry McCoy, en­duro and desert rac­ing cham­pion Toby Price, Moto3 cham­pi­onship hope Jack Miller and leg­ends Stephen Gall, Ja­son Crump and Jeff Leisk. Sit back and check out the ac­tion from the 2014 Troy Bayliss Clas­sic, a fierce rac­ing event that is fast be­com­ing one of the pre­mier off-road rac­ing events in the world.
