The racing world offers their condolences to the friends and family of American motorcycle racer Nicky Hayden, who succumbed to injuries from a bicycle crash on Monday. He was 35.
Hayden was training on his bicycle in Italy on Wednesday when he was struck by a car. He was taken to a local hospital with chest and head trauma, and was then transferred to the Bufalini Hospital in Cesena.
The hospital released a medical bulletin on Monday announcing the death, having said last week that Hayden had severe cerebral damage and multiple traumatic injuries.
