Bayliss unfazed by practice crash

Bayliss unfazed by practice crash

Camel Honda rider Troy Bayliss suffered a spectacular highside in the second free practice session of the betandwin.com Grande Premio de Portugal, bashing his left shoulder and head against the ground.

Nevertheless, with the determination and courage which has become his trademark, he returned straight to the pit garage only to immediately get back out on track for the rest of the session with his second bike.

At the end of the session, given that he didn't remember the incident, he visited Doctor Ruggiero Mattioli's mobile clinic, who after consultation with the circuit medical centre, decided there was no need for a CAT scan, and will simply visit the Camel Honda rider tomorrow morning before the third free practice session.

"I can't really say much about today because I don't remember too much!" said Bayliss after the session. "I crashed, and then returned to the box, but don't remember the incident."

"I hit the ground with my left shoulder, it was a big hit, but as it wasn't hurting that much I went out again. I think I need a bit of a rest, but tomorrow I'll ride again because this morning we did a good job, riding consistently fast and I want to make some good progress also tomorrow."
