    Nicky Hayden - bad accident on a bicycle

    Just come across this in the mainstream press
    https://www.theguardian.com/sport/20...njuries-motogp

    One of the 'nice guys' and IMHO a credit to the sport. Hope he heals well.

    Re: Nicky Hayden - bad accident on a bicycle

    Italy is definitely a dangerous place for bicycles: Hopefully he will recover. Not so for some previous high publicity incidents ...

    July 7, 2011 ONE of Australia's most promising young cyclists, Carly Hibberd, 26, from Brisbane, has been killed after being hit by a car while training in Italy.

    23 Apr 2017,
    Michele Scarponi, the 2011 Giro d'Italia champion, has been killed in a road accident after being hit by a van while training close to his home in Filottrano, Italy


    No good deed goes unpunished!

    Re: Nicky Hayden - bad accident on a bicycle

    I am italian, and I used to cycle a lot on teh Appenins before moving in the superflat Netherlands..
    I risked so much so many times..still too beautiful not to take the risk..

    I don t know what to hope for Nicky...living as a vegetable then better the grave..my opinion.

    I first saw him (and Tommy) at Memphis in 91. They were both riding Honda 125s in practice, and I was on my ZX-6. I passed them coming onto the front straight (a full NHRA 1/4 mile dragstrip and shutdown area....aka LOOOOOONG), and didn't give them another thought......UNTIL I pitched it into T3. Both of them went under me and gone, like I wasn't even there!! Nicky was 10, Tommy was 13, and I was 35. I came in from practice and asked my pit-mate "who the F*** are those two kids on the 125s??"
    He replied "oh, that's Nicky and Tommy Hayden...keep an eye on those two". I have, ever since.

    RIP, Nicky.....

    Re: Nicky Hayden - bad accident on a bicycle

    That is sad news, even though I only knew him through the TV. He was always a bloody entertaining bloke on the bike and when he was interviewed. Obviously such a well-liked man. To me, he was always the opposite of the stereotypical professional sports interviewee. I never once turned the TV off or switched the channel when they stuck a microphone in front of him. Could have been that twang. Could have been what he said or how he said it. I was all ears, whatever it was.

    Gosh darn it. Sodding watering eyes.

    Well, I thought I had some special buttons now, but some people have even specialer buttons.

    same here, what always struck me was the professional way he dealt in interviews with 'problem bikes' like this years fireblade. Never spitting the dummy out by slagging off the team or machinery, simply managing to say it as it is.

    The grid has lost a great racer.
