Troy’s Story – The Incredible Rise of Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss
The hard-charging style of legendary motorcycle racer Troy Bayliss has won him not only the World Superbike crown, but a reputation as one of the most exciting riders in the world. TROY’S STORY tells his unlikely and inspirational tale, following Troy from his years as a motorbike prodigy to the top ranks of his sport.
Troy has often said that he would rather put the bike into the wall than finish second, and early in his career, the only way he could afford to continue racing was to continue winning. Narrated by Ewan McGregor, these six episodes feature rare home videos, footage from some of the greatest races in recent memory, and interviews with Troy, his family, and many of the tour’s top riders. Named Best Documentary at the New York Film Festival, TROY’S STORY paints an intimate portrait of one of the world’s great athletes and tells how one man gambled everything on the sport he loved, and walked away a winner.
Over 70 Minutes of Bonuses including: Interview with Troy Bayliss, Deleted Scenes, Additional Pit and Race Footage and Troy Bayliss Biography!

Although I liked The Doctor,The Tornado and The Kentucky Kid better,That is not to say this isn’t worth watching, Troy Bayliss seems like a nice guy and a good racer I am not a big fan nor Much of a Ducati Fan but it is interesting and in depth with interviews with him and his family, His time Riding Kawasaki, Suzuki and Ducati.
Scott Douglas –
There was a lot of great background of how Troy Bayliss got into racing but this really stops at 2002. There was really nothing about his 2 years with the Ducati MotoGp team, his year on the Honda MotoGp bike or his return to World Superbike other than a few sentences and images. I would have thought this newer DVD would have more of the recent history as well. This DVD shows what a great competitor and really nice guy Troy is.
Though I love my motorcycle, I hate television and never watch motorcycle racing. I just don’t get it – it’s not that exciting. I tried watching this in streaming format and didn’t find it compelling – over two hours of slow paced chit chat with Troy, his parents, his sister, his wife… and excessive footage of people walking around, standing in locker rooms, in general not being interesting. Not much of a compelling story line – and a lot of filler. I bet if this was edited down to 60 minutes (leaving out crap about his wedding – seriously???) – it would be more interesting. Someone should’ve told his dad about sitting like that in front of the camera – e[…] Recommend this only for the most die hard racing/Troy Bayliss fans.
