Nicky Hayden: Earl Hayden Decries Fake News

"Earl told me the following:

The family HAS NOT issued a statement that Nicky is dead.

Nicky IS NOT dead, although he is on life support.

Nicky was riding his bicycle alone, NOT in a group of 14 riders.

Doctors DID NOT perform surgery on Nicky.

Nicky WAS NEVER in an induced coma."

I'm pretty sure you can beat me at your local track .

I'm really sad about Nicky's current condition. I hope for the best but nothing about it sounds like it will improve

I've never even been on my local track, so.. no.

It is sounding like there is a lot of BS going around about him unfortunately. I don't think we'll know what is actually going on for a bit longer. Hopefully things are better than they sound.

Sorry to see this, at such an age, and in these circumstances.

How do you go from being successful at 150 plus, to being killed as a result of riding a bicycle? (I already know the answer; just don't like it much)

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "

RIP Nicky ...I still can't believe this happened, especially in the way that he died.

Race motorcycles for 30 years, reaching the highest point of motorcycle racing, and then being taken out by a car while riding a bicycle...so tragic and unfortunate!

Simply unreal. Literally cant believe it and dont want to. I was so incredibly happy for him to find a place and home in the WSBK. This is just heart breaking.

I first saw him (and Tommy) at Memphis in 91. They were both riding Honda 125s in practice, and I was on my ZX-6. I passed them coming onto the front straight (a full NHRA 1/4 mile dragstrip and shutdown area....aka LOOOOOONG), and didn't give them another thought......UNTIL I pitched it into T3. Both of them went under me and gone, like I wasn't even there!! Nicky was 10, Tommy was 13, and I was 35. I came in from practice and asked my pit-mate "who the F*** are those two kids on the 125s??"
He replied "oh, that's Nicky and Tommy Hayden...keep an eye on those two". I have, ever since.


RIP, Champ.
