Nicky Hayden was involved in a serious collision with a car today, while training on his bicycle along the Rimini coast.
Hayden was riding with a group of cyclists, when an incident with a Peugeot saw Hayden struck by the car, resulting in the former MotoGP champion hitting the car’s hood and breaking through its windshield.
Details are light at this moment, but Hayden is said to have serious injuries to his chest and head from the crash. We will report more information as soon as we have it, and can verify its accuracy.
Updates on Hayden’s condition appear after the jump. This story was last updated at 11:29 AM.
UPDATE – 11:29 AM: Hayden is out of surgery, and has been put into a medically induced coma. He is expected to stay in the coma for the next 24 hours in order to faciliate healing.
UPDATE – 8:51 AM: Hayden has been transferred to Bufalini Hospital in Cesena near Forli, in order to see head and trauma specialists at that hospital. His condition is said to be very serious, but stable.

This morning I read in several papers that he is in pretty bad shape.

"Extremely severe condition, in induced coma in intensive care"

"Heavy craneal trauma that generated a brain edema", this is the doctors main concern.

He also has torax trauma and open fractured bone on one leg and due to his unstable condition they can't treat this wounds yet.

Guys, he is in real bad shape... send him your prayers and keep him in your mind.

****...

Damn cage drivers! All those laps on the circuit, cheek and jowl with other racers couldn't do him in, but some dumb ass distracted driver sure could. Hope he pulls through. Long long way back to the track if he does. God bless you Nick one kentucky boy to another.

Nicky Hayden in serious condition :(

I've been following the developments closely since yesterday, there seems to be some mixed reports coming out, but even the official reports aren't good. This is a horrible situation and has really affected a lot of people, me included. I'm hoping things take a turn for the better and he pulls through. I've got a buddy that's friends with him and his brother so I'm going to try to see if he knows anything, but my guess is info is limited to close family at the moment.

Former MotoGP champion Nicky Hayden is in an "extremely critical" condition and has his family by his side after suffering "serious cerebral damage" in a cycling accident on Wednesday.

The 35-year-old American collided with a car while cycling on the Rimini coastline.

He had raced in the World Superbike Championship in Italy last Sunday.

Hayden, who has been racing for Red Bull Honda's World Superbike team, won the MotoGP championship in 2006.

"The young man, who is still in the intensive care unit of Cesena's Bufalini hospital, has suffered a serious polytrauma with subsequent serious cerebral damage," a hospital statement read.

"The prognosis remains reserved."

Polytrauma is a medical term to describe the condition of a person who has multiple traumatic injuries.

Vale's tweets his best wishes & support

Nicky è uno dei migliori amici che ho avuto nel paddock.siamo stati compagni di squadra con la Honda nel suo anno da rookie,il 2003,quando era un giovane debuttante alla prima esperienza europea.quella stagione si chiuse con il mondiale per me e con il suo primo podio a Phillip Island.dopo qualche anno abbiamo lottato uno contro l'altro per il mondiale 2006 fino all'ultima gara e alla fine,purtroppo per me,mi ha battuto ed è diventato il campione del mondo della MotoGP.dopo la gara ci siamo dati la mano e ci siamo abbracciati.in seguito siamo stati ancora compagni di squadra nei difficili anni della Ducati,quando parecchie volte abbiamo lottato all'ultimo sangue,magari per conquistare l'ultimo posto nella top five.Nicky veniva spesso al Ranch,dove era sempre uno spettacolo vederlo e cercare di carpire qualche segreto battagliandoci insieme,perché lui è uno dei più veloci flattisti del mondo e prima di passare all'asfalto ha vinto le più importanti gare di Flat Track americano come il Peoria TT. Il più bel ricordo che ho di lui però è quando è venuto a darmi la mano dopo la sfortunata gara di Valencia 2015,durante il giro d'onore.per lui era l'addio alla MotoGP,io avevo appena perso il mondiale.il suo sguardo di supporto dentro il casco è uno dei pochi ricordi positivi che ho di quel giorno.Forza Nicky,siamo tutti con te.

English translation
Nicky is one of the best friends I've ever had in the Paddock. We've been teammates with Honda in his rookie year, 2003, when he was a young debutant at the first European experience. This season he closed with the world for me and with His first podium at Phillip Island. After a few years we fought one against the other for the 2006 World Cup until the last race and in the end, unfortunately for me, he beat me and became the champion of the MotoGP world. Race we gave our hand and we embraced. Afterwards we were still team-mates in the difficult years of Ducati, when several times we fought at the last blood, maybe to win the last place in the top five. Nicky often came to Ranch, where it was always a show to see him and try to capture some secret battling together, because he is one of the fastest flatters in the world an and before going to the asphalt he won the most important American Flat Track competitions com And the Peoria TT. The most beautiful thing I have about him is when he came to hand me after the unlucky race of Valencia 2015, on the lap of honor. For him he was the farewell to MotoGP, I had just lost the world. Supporting look inside the helmet is one of the few positive memories I have of that day. For Nicky, we're all with you.

:( yeah saw those Moe, reports from the driver is he came out of no where cut in front of me, I didn't see him coming... its irrelevant at this point as to who was at fault here, he was riding alone at the time too, so the guy who hit him likely had no idea who he was...

"In the last 15 minutes, we've seen a number of pages posting articles from very unreliable websites claiming that Nicky Hayden has passed away & people are sharing these & spreading the false news.

The latest update is unchanged from earlier - Nicky is in a critical condition and nothing else credible has been reported yet so please ignore sensationalist ******** from pages using this tragic situation as click-bait.
We will continue to update this page as & when official updates are available." https://www.facebook.com/superbikefreaks/
