Bloody hell....race bikes and get taken out riding a pushy....hope he pulls through
It's weird how it happens. Same thing with Michael Schumacher. Race fast cars for years and become a vegetable from skiing. It's just awful when you really think about it.
Always been a bit of a fan of Nicky Hayden. Hopefully he's able to make a full recovery, but words like "serious" and "critical" tend to mean "could die" so it's not looking good. I just hope when I wake up in the morning I can read some positive news on him.

Nicky Hayden was one of the nicest blokes to ever race bikes and I am a huge fan, have been since he first showed up in Superbikes. It's a very sad day and we are all the poorer for his passing.RIP Nicky Hayden.
New Commodore Hey! So you used your own money? Would you like to buy a used bridge?
I only knew he raced bikes and was a world champion.
Those that knew him only speak of how nice a guy he was before they even mention his on track achievments.
A true mark of a man.
RIP LJ - loved and never forgotten.
"It was dry for the second go-around. Grice, nervous, worrying about his Bathurst jinx, ran 2:25.9. The amazing Brock, using every last centimetre of bitumen, yet keeping the car straight and balanced and at full noise, came back with a staggering 2:20.0 as if to say: "Match that". And people just shook their heads, bit their lips and wondered who would be second".
