Another Motorport Hero gone..

Tragically at just 35. Nicky Hayden - victim of a bicycle/car road accident. Survived the crash but died of his injuries today in hospital...

So young too.. RIP

Oh my --- way too young indeed....
My condolences to his family and friends who are most certainly reeling in grief!
Rest in peace Nicky...

Re: Another Motorport Hero gone..

So Sad to read that news this morning, it seems so unreal that the times Ive watched him come off his bike at 200mph+ get up and kick his bike in disgust, and then to loose his life on a push bike by getting knocked off by some poor sod on his way to work.
just doesn't seem right to me.
RIP
cheers John
