Don Nicholas, Apparel Division Manager

“We are thrilled to have Troy come on board with Link International and switch to one of Europe’s premium brands with Macna. Macna are a Dutch company with 30 years’ experience in motorcycle apparel for road, adventure and urban riders, and they have a strong connection with racing. With riders like Jordi Torris, Andrea Locatelli, John McPhee all racing in Macna suits, they know how to make a quality race suit. We are proud to have TB21 as an ambassador for Macna in Australia”

Owner of Macna, Mr Patrick Kant also commented, “As brand owner of Macna, I am very excited to welcome 3 time World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss into the Macna race family. We look forward to watching him race with us in the year ahead”.

Troy Bayliss:

“It’s my first year racing with Macna race suits and so far I’m pretty impressed. I was unlucky enough to give the suit a proper test recently in a really big crash in testing, and I came away relatively unscathed. It’s great to be wearing something that makes me feel so protected, safe and comfortable while I’m racing. I’m looking forward to showing off the new Macna race suit to the world in the Desmosport Ducati colours at Phillip Island.”

Joining Troy in Macna this year is rising star Oli Bayliss, who has also signed on to race with Macna in the 300 Production Class of the 2018 Australian Superbike Championship presented by Motul Pirelli.

Macna have a large range of premium apparel, jackets, pants and gloves available through selected stockists throughout Australia, with the latest 2018 range landing in March.
