If you are someone who loves to keep up with all things involving speed then you probably know a thing or two about MotoGP! It is some of the fastest racing in the world and never fails to offer the best action featuring some of the most talented riders. Each year a new champion is named and it is an honor that solidifies them into an elite class of riders.
MotoGP World Champion Nicky Hayden was given that honor in 2006, but unfortunately his time behind the wheel was cut short May 22nd 2017 after a deadly collision in Italy. It was there that he was struck by a car while riding his bicycle as part of his training regimen. According to reports, Hayden had biked into an intersection, where he was struck by a car as it passed through the intersection. Hayden was in the intensive care unit at the hospital for several days with multiple serious injuries, including cerebral damage, before passing away.
Hayden’s passion for riding had begun from the time he was a young boy. In fact, he used to have to rely on his crewmen to hold the bike up at the start of the race until he got rolling, at which time he would compete head to head with racers many years his senior. Nicky was a true legend in the racing world and this is a devastating loss!
