WSB front-man says his Ducati need to work better than it did in Valencia if the squad want results
Bayliss currently has a massive 48 point lead after the first three rounds
(the second largest lead at this stage of the championship, the highest was 68
points that Carl Fogarty held over Mauro Lucchiari in 1995), and has just
finished a two-day test session in very wet conditions at Monza, a useful
exercise because of the high chance of rain in Holland this weekend.
And even though Troy took wins at Assen in both 2007 and 2006, he has very
mixed emotions regarding the historic Dutch TT Circuit.
He said: "Assen - it's a track where I've had my moments, and I like, love
or hate it depending on the season! I've won and lost championships as a
result of how I've gone here in the past. I hope, with it being my last year
riding in World Superbikes, that this is one of those times that I come away
loving it! During the race you can generally afford to sit back and wait a bit at
this track but, having said that, it depends on the day, how everyone is
riding, and on the unpredictable weather conditions. It's also a track where
tyre issues come into play. I would like the overall F08 package to work a bit
better than it did in Valencia, as although that weekend we were able to get
stronger each day, I was never totally comfortable."

Not so much Ducati, rather the red bike that Troy rides.
He would dominate on a IL4
