What absolutely dreadful news. I sincerely hope Nicky pulls through - as this incident has evidently left him in a terrible way. My thoughts go out to Nicky and those close to him at this very difficult time.

Bit stunned really
All those racing miles, and this happens on a pushbike.

I've only just heard the terribly sad news. My deepest condolences to his family, fiancée and his many friends - both within and outside of racing - that he has left behind. Rest peacefully now Nicky: & thank you for all the great memories during your time with us. The world was a better place when you were in it.

That is appalling news. Nicky always came across as a true gentleman. No justice in that. Sincere condolences to his family and friends.

RE: Nicky Hayden in 'serious condition' after being hit by car in Italy
Awful news, incredibly sad, and ridiculous to think how it happened.
He can't have had a care in the world when he set off on that bike.
My deepest sympathy to his family.

RE: Nicky Hayden in 'serious condition' after being hit by car in Italy
Absolute tragedy, and, as others have said, it almost defies belief when you consider Nicky's racing career, the speed, danger and risks of top level racing, to succumb to a pushbike accident. Just terrible.

Statement from Red Bull Honda World Superbike Team

It is with great sadness that Red Bull Honda World Superbike Team has to announce that Nicky Hayden has succumbed to injuries suffered during an incident while riding his bicycle last Wednesday.

Nicky passed away at 19:09 CEST this evening at Maurizio Bufalini Hospital in Cesena, Italy. His fiancée Jackie, mother Rose and brother Tommy were at his side.

Throughout his career Nicky’s professionalism and fighting spirit was greatly valued and carried him to numerous successes, including his childhood dream of being crowned MotoGP World Champion with Honda in 2006. As well as being a true champion on the track, Nicky was a fan favourite off it due to his kind nature, relaxed demeanour, and the huge smile he invariably carried everywhere.

Nothing says more about Nicky’s character than the overwhelming response expressed by fellow racers and his legions of fans over the past few days. Jackie and his family are truly grateful for the countless prayers and well wishes for Nicky.

The ‘Kentucky Kid’ will be sorely missed by all that ever had the pleasure of meeting him or the privilege to see him race a motorcycle around a track, be it dirt or asphalt.

The racing world says goodbye to one of its dearest sons. Rest in peace Nicholas ‘Nicky’ Patrick Hayden.

Tommy Hayden

“On behalf of the whole Hayden family and Nicky’s fiancée Jackie I would like to thank everyone for their messages of support – it has been a great comfort to us all knowing that Nicky has touched so many people’s lives in such a positive way.

“Although this is obviously a sad time, we would like everyone to remember Nicky at his happiest – riding a motorcycle. He dreamed as a kid of being a pro rider and not only achieved that but also managed to reach the pinnacle of his chosen sport in becoming World Champion. We are all so proud of that.

“Apart from these ‘public’ memories, we will also have many great and happy memories of Nicky at home in Kentucky, in the heart of the family. We will all miss him terribly.

“It is also important for us to thank all the hospital staff for their incredible support – they have been very kind. With the further support of the authorities in the coming days we hope to have Nicky home soon.”

Only just seen this. So sad and such a waste.

RIP Nicky.
