Profession: Motorbike rider
Australian Troy Corser, known as Croc to his friends, was born on November 27, 1971. He is two-time SBK world champion, in 1996 with Ducati and 2005 with Suzuki, achieving a total of 33 wins, 130 podiums, 43 poles and 45 fastest laps in 16 seasons with six different brands.
As a child, inspired by his father, he rode BMX bikes and a Yamaha TY80 mini motorcycle. Maybe, if things had gone differently, he might have become a helicopter pilot. Today he also enjoys motocross, go-karting, golf and jet surf racing. He runs a racing school on the track, and his next goal is to mentor a young rider. He dreams of going on a cruise, loves hoverboarding, has a passion for fresh fish, listens to classical music to relax, and his favorite movie is Lethal Weapon. Agostini is his sports hero.
