For all you who follow racing, Nicky Hayden, the 2006 MotoGP Champion and current World Superbike rider was seriously injured today in Rimini, Italy, while training on his bicycle. Read here: http://www.worldsbk.com/. No updates have been issued since the accident. Hit by some idiot in a Peugeot. Can also Google and read more.

Thinking along the lines of Michael Schumacher, Nicky is done. With his career and probably life in general. I wish he had been on the top of the charts when this happened.

Sounds like the fake news has run amuck about Nicky's demise. Hard to know what to believe but, this sounds factual coming from his father.

Cool Kid I hope he survives. frown
