Vale Nicky Hayden

Vale, Nicky Hayden. What a tragic loss at such a young age!

When Christine and I were in the United States in 2005, we did a trunk show in Owensboro, Kentucky.

We met Suzy Hayden, Nicky’s aunt. We have followed his career ever since. It was with a sense of stunned disbelief, we heard the news of his death yesterday – hit by a car while training on his push bike on the Adriatic coast in Italy.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
