    Very sad. This is terrible and I feel the pain for his family.

    My brother was hit by a car and ran over a few years ago, same descriptions for injuries and he was in a medically induced coma on life support for 5 weeks...not to mention all the rehab. He'll never be the same. I hope he fares better than my brother, but will probably have to find another way to engage in life's activities after this.

    People wonder how I can be so darned happy despite hardships...well, cuz stuff like this puts your life in perspective when it happens close to home. Live life and appreciate each day. Whether 200 mph or 15...how really vulnerable we are always catches up to us, and most of the time when we least expect it.

    Former MotoGP world champion Nicky Hayden has suffered severe brain damage as a result of his bicycle accident, a medical statement issued on Thursday confirmed.

    The American remains hospitalised in the Intensive Care unit in the Bufalini hospital in Cesena, having been hit by a car while riding with friends on Wednesday.

    In a 17:00 CET update, the hospital confirmed that Hayden's condition remains extremely critical.

    A statement said the 35-year-old suffered serious polytrauma with subsequent serious cerebral damage in the accident and that his prognosis remains unknown.


    Hayden's fiancee Jackie has been by his side so far, and she has been joined by his mother Rose and his brother Tommy, who had flown from the United States.

    MotoGP legend and Hayden's friend Valentino Rossi paid homage to the American rider, who beat him to the MotoGP title in 2006.

    "Very, very bad news from yesterday," said Rossi ahead of the French Grand Prix on Thursday. "I spoke straight away with a doctor, my friend, and he said that from the very first moment the situation was very difficult for Nicky"

    So sad to see this, you are totally exposed on a bicycle when you are on the road. My prayers to Nicky and family.
    It is amazing that Danica Patrick (white Ford on left) Joey Logano (hidden behind #43) walked away without a scratch and Eric Almirola had a single compressed vertebrae and Nicky is damn near killed.

    Yep, got to shake his hand at Laguna 2001 I believe, when we were noising around in the pits on a Saturday morning, he was just sitting there with the crew. just an everyday kinda guy taking it all in. Hard to take in when looking at the risk he was surrounded with.. just crazy.

    NICKY HAYDEN DEAD

    Reports are coming in that Nicky Hayden was surrounded by his family when his life slipped away

    I'll update as I can

    My deepest sympathies to those he leaves behind

    RIP Nicky

    Not so fast, there's a lot of media vultures working off the emotions here, http://www.roadracingworld.com/news/...ies-fake-news/ Nicky is still with us.

    John Ulrich spoke to Earl Hayden this morning. He says Earl insists Nicky is NOT dead, was never in an induced coma although he's on life support. He has not had any surgery yet. Also, Nicky was riding alone, not in a group of 14 riders. Fake news.

    Was that insane or what?! Never seen anything like that before! Have to say that all three classes had good racing today. Just finished watching Moto2 and wow, almost all the way to the end, were the front two setting record paces!
