Bayliss gets first taste of MotoGP

Earlier this month, Troy Bayliss took part in his first testing session aboard the new Ducati MotoGP prototype, the Desmosedici. In 2003, the Aussie will ride alongside GP winner Loris Capirossi for what will be his rookie year in the World Championship. For his first contact with the 990cc machine, he spent two days at the Mugello track, where test rider Vito Guareschi had been in charge of the development of the bike over the past few months.

´My first impression after hopping on the bike was very good, it´s got a lot of power and it´s been an exciting couple of days and we´ve made some good progress since we arrived´ explained the 33-year-old Australian.
