||In Troy Bayliss: A Faster Way, essential techniques that produce faster lap
times, greater control, and improved safety are explained in practical terms that
any rider can grasp. The book includes chapters devoted to visual skills, body
positioning, line selection, steering, braking, and throttle control. And it also
explains how bike setup and mental and physical conditioning can help riders find a
faster way in any setting.
The techniques and tips in Troy Bayliss: A Faster Way are illustrated with
color photographs showing Troy applying them in action at the track. There are also
diagrams and illustrations that explain the principles and technology behind each
technique. And the book begins with a Foreword by Paolo Ciabetti, who helped
bring Troy to Ducati in 2000 and has remained an important influence ever since.
Whether you’re a street rider, track-day rider, or aspiring racer, you’re sure to
benefit from Troy’s insights on riding a motorcycle for maximum effect. And if you
think you’re as quick as you’ll ever be, you’ll be surprised by what you can do with
minute changes in technique, body position, and mental training. “The most
important thing to realize about motorcycle riding is that it’s a dynamic skill,” Troy
observes in the book’s Introduction. “You will always be able to improve or change
something to be faster, smoother, and safer.”
The rare combination of natural talent, skill, commitment and determination of
Troy Bayliss only comes along once every few decades. For motorcycle racing fans
as much as riders and racers, A Faster Way offers insight on how Troy’s technique
made the difference at racetracks around the world, and singled him out as one of
the best riders of his day.
