R.I.P. Nicky Hayden

Very sad news... Only bloody 35

I know a few days ago there was fake news claiming he'd died, and when I heard this I really hoped it was another, but unfortunately not. Press statement from Honda attached

RIP NickyImage

Lost a great rider who was a tremendous ambassador for his sport and one who graced us all with his style and passion for anything 2 wheeled. I never came across any bad press about him or heard any other rider say a bad word about the fella. He remained professional even in the most testing periods of his career and always seemed to look forward to what can be rather than look back at what has been. A testament to a man who fought in what at times appeared to be a political and cut throat sport and more so when we consider the many years he graced the paddocks. RIP Nicky and ride those bends like a dirt track champion
