    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.

    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.

    Three days in....still in there, but very serious.

    I was at the Ducati Parts Counter and sure enough, they were mourning his passing.
    I set them straight and told them to pray....

    Earl Hayden has clarified that he was never put into an induced coma, which I assume means he remains unconscious due to his injuries. As of Friday he also had not had surgery.

    The key point is if he can breathe on his own of not, I think I read he was being assisted in the first 24 hours. Not sure abouf now but like Schumacher you wonder if there was anything encouraging if that would be released.

    Best to disregard all information unless it comes directly from the Hayden family or his treating doctors.

    There seems to be a lot of misinformation and conflicting information.

    Typically brain trauma patients are placed in an induced coma to "rest" the brain. If it is true that he hasn't been placed in an induced coma,… that would seem to be good news regarding brain status (since we are a few days out).

    Is he awake? Breathing unassisted? Is the spinal cord intact? We don't know.

    The lack of information is concerning. Lets face it,… if he had a broken shoulder and looked like he'd been in a UFC match,… but was watching TV,… the family would almost certainly make a statement.

    Another wild card affecting release of information could be the accident itself,… if there is any criminal case… there could be legal reasons to say vey little at this point.

    Bottom line: we know very little,… but the circumstances warrans great concern.

    Hoping for the best.

    Wow. I am incredibly sad to learn of his passing. 35 is way too young.

    He was probably the last American MotoGP Champion we'll have seen in our lifetimes. Tremendous talent, and seemed like he was really down-to-earth, respectful, likable, and charismatic.

    My heart goes out to his family, friends, and fans. He will be truly missed.

    Very sad to see this. Was able to witness his talent at Laguna-Seca 2005, on a trip to California. All the best to his family. Indeed very sad this is.
