Hayden in serious condition after road accident





Nicky Hayden, Honda World Superbike Team

Former MotoGP champion and current Honda World Superbike factory rider Nicky Hayden is in serious condition, having sustained injuries in a road accident in Italy.


Hayden, 35, was cycling with friends on a road close to Rimini on Wednesday when a road car collided with his bicycle, the American ending up on the hood of the car and impacting against its windshield.


He was rushed to a hospital in Rimini with severe head and chest trauma - and remains in serious condition.


A native of Kentucky, Hayden was a MotoGP world championship mainstay between 2003 and 2015, having raced for the Honda and Ducati factory teams, as well as then-Honda privateer outfit Aspar.


He famously pipped Valentino Rossi to the 2006 MotoGP crown and scored a total of three premier class wins – all with Honda.


Although he featured in MotoGP as recently as last year, subbing for Jack Miller at Marc VDS Honda and for Dani Pedrosa at the factory Honda team, Hayden has focused on World Superbikes for the past two campaigns.


He finished fifth in Superbikes last year, securing Honda's only win of the season in Malaysia, and currently sits 13th in the 2017 standings.[

Petit anecdote sur Hayden:


Il y a plus de dix ans je suis aller faire un trackday a Little Talladega en Alabama. Il y avait un enfant (environ 12 ans) sur un supermotard Honda qui était assez rapide. J'étais sur un Yamaha R1 2004/5 donc j'ai fini par le dépasser dans un bout droit et sur son suit il était écrit "Hayden" On m'a informé dans les pits que c'était le cousin de Nicky.


J'espère pour lui et sa famille qu'il s'en sortira et pas trop mal.
