Troy Corser - 2005 Rider Profile

Troy Corser

Troy is as smooth as silk on a race bike. Think of the smoothest racer you have ever seen, double it and add cream to that smoothness. He could race full pelt on a severely misfiring TZ 750 with flat tyres and a cracked frame and make it seem from the outside like a Gold Wing on cruise control. But a mellow disposition and permanent smile hide a steely determination that's second to none on the track. Troy's quite at home elbow to elbow in the middle of a first-corner brawl. You have to be tough to be a Champion and Troy has already proved that by becoming Champ in 1996.

Troy says;

"I am really looking forward to my new challenge with Team Alstare in 2005. For many years I have been impressed with their set-up and structure, their professionalism, and now I am working with them! The 2005 GSX-R1000 Suzuki is a fabulous looking machine and, as it is bound to be an improvement over the previous model, I am sure that I'll be able to do the business with it. After all, the "old" bike managed to win countless AMA and British Superbike titles, so we know it's a great bike! I'm very happy to have a couple of my old mechanics (from 2000 and 2001) with me in Team Alstare and feel that we now have the complete package to win the title. I am not looking at 2005 as a learning year with the bike - I am looking to take the title! After the past couple of years, it's hard for me to explain how fired up I am about 2005 and the prospects ahead. I know I have the ability to win and, with the tremendous support of Francis Batta and the whole Alstare team, I expect to be holding the trophy at the end of the year!
