It always seems so crazy that someone who raced for years in such a dangerous sport ends up with such serious injuries doing something a lot of people do everyday. Prayers for your recovery Nicky.

Bob Wolleck died at Sebring...by being hit by a motorist while riding his bicycle on a public road the week of the race.

Big Nicky (and the rest of the Haydens) fan, hope he recovers well.

Praying for Nicky. This sucks. Hope the driver of the car is held accountable, if his actions caused this.

Terrible news. Have always been a fan of Nicky's. My thoughts are with him and his family.

On a popular motorcycle forum (not populated by idiots or trolls as many are), a credible poster with ties to the region posted late today that he has been declared brain dead, and once the family arrives...well.

Hopefully this is just rumors run amuck. Debated even posting anything lest I contribute to the problem.

Literally praying for him.

I don't have a desire to ride a bicycle on public roads any more. Cars are too close going too fast. Even with a side bike edge.

I'd rather ride on specific bike trails not attached to the shoulders.

I don't have the link, but it was reported on FB that he had passed away from his injuries. However NO mention on the
Moto-GP nor Atlas F-1 website so who really knows? Nevertheless, I'm very sorry to hear this as I was always rooting for him!

Agreed. I feel much more exposed on a bike than motorcycle. with everyone texting it's just too easy to get hit.

Still, incredible a moto GP guy gets hit on a bicycle.

I hope he comes out of it ok. .

Nothing funny about it - it's all about money. They are relying on income from Google Ad-sense or similar products and there are fake / inflammatory news sites making in excess of $10K per month on this stuff. Not bad money to sit in Mom's basement and make stuff up.

If it bothers you, as I think it should, complain to the advertisers and complain to the hosting company - in this case GoDaddy. The domain registration, naturally, is hidden by a privacy service.
