In his first book, three-time World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss offers a master class in advanced sportbike riding techniques. Sportbike Riding From the Top Down will help nearly every serious rider - from newcomers working to improve their performance and safety on the road to experts trying to make the most of their next track day. This is the first instructional riding book written by a professional of Bayliss's stature and experience. Joined by fellow rider and author Andrew Trevitt, Bayliss explains key physical skills required for effective riding at any level, as well as sophisticated techniques for maximizing performance at the track. Includes a foreword by Paolo Ciabatti, boss of Ducati's MotoGP team.
