ormer MotoGP World Champion Nicky Hayden is in
his 11th year as a factory rider. And his last. Dropped
by Ducati (he joined the Italians five years ago from
Repsol Honda), he will next year move to the second level, on an upgraded CRT Aprilia ART.
Hayden is one of the best-liked riders in the paddock.
His gift is he can speak his mind while still being kind.
