WSBK: Hayden 'extremely critical' after cycling accident

Terrible news about Nicky Hayden. Red Bull Honda have released the following statement: Nicky Haydens clinical condition remains extremely critical.

Yes, he has serious head and chest injuries. They have him in a medical induced coma due to the bleeding in the brain. It's ironic, he makes his living riding a motorcycle at 200 mph. but gets taken out on a bicycle. Hope he makes a full recovery.

One of my favorite racers of all time - *69.  He was a presence in flat track at the Peoria Motorcycle Club TT near where I live earlier in his career.  I hope he recovers completely, but it's going to be a tough road.

I really do hope he recovers.  It's a real PITA when this happens doing a sport that appears less risky than a high speed/high risk sport.

One thing I have noticed is that it has not been publicized is whether he was wearing any protective headgear.
I'm not trying to "have a go"....but would be interested in knowing.

Twas a sad day  :003:
latest is not really significantly different,
he is no longer in a medical coma but critical, his condition is described as reserved???
which I guess is their way of not knowing,
one of the honest nice guys in the paddock, never heard a bad word said of him, ever.

Google the story about Burry Stander, the South African Olympic medalist to see how a random idiot can change a nation. On a training ride, 25m from his fathers cycle shop, he was wiped out by a 'taxi' driver (illegal minibus cowboy on the wrong side of the road dodging a two minute delay). His family have kept a vigil for years, starting a 'ghost bike' movement whenever anyone is killed on a bicycle. Sadly, it has consumed them way beyond a healthy reaction and ruined a prosperous business, a marriage, a community, and a sporting foray into international cycling. One moron is all it took but thousands of silent 'taxi' passengers are also to blame. However, I drive by the tribute daily (in SA) and it makes me rethink my speed and vigilance. Maybe it has already saved many more riders. Here in the USA, pedestrians and cyclists get all the space they need because an avalanche of litigation falls on you if you hit one! Precisely right (like school buses) in this example....

That sucks. Gaylon Mosier the pro MX'er went the same way. Right before Unadilla.
