American professional motorcycle racer – Nicky Hayden
Nicky Hayden, born July 30, 1981 in Owensboro, Kentucky, also known as The Kentucky Kid, is an American professional motorcycle racer who has been racing motorcycles throughout most of his life.
As a youngster racing others twice his age in CMRA, Hayden would start the race from the back of the starting grid while a family or crew member held his bike upright because he could not touch the ground. Later at age 17, he was racing factory Honda RC45 superbikes while still in high school. Hayden won the Daytona 200 on a Honda superbike in 2002.
His first year of MotoGP (2003) saw Hayden finish fifth in the championship points standings, more than enough to take Rookie-of-the-Year honors. In 2005, Hayden finished third in the MotoGP championship points standings behind Marco Melandri and series winner Valentino Rossi.
For 2006, Hayden has been charged with spear heading Repsol Honda’s championship aspirations. This is evidenced by his seniority in age among the new crop of MotoGP riders and by having the virtue of being the only rider to be have been handed the full 2006 Honda bike during preseason. In many ways, this is the pivotal year of his career as failure to lead Honda and challenge for the championship could see him demoted in Honda’s pecking order of young riders.
Hayden has two brothers, Tommy and Roger Lee, both professional motorcycle racers in the AMA, and two sisters, Jenny and Kathleen.
