Nicky Hayden to race Supermoto in X-Games

A good reason to tune in.....

RACERX:


Nicky Hayden to race Supermoto in X-Games

Did you know that Moto GP World Champion, Nicky Hayden is competing in Supermoto in this weekends X Games?


The factory Honda rider asked his employer about racing the event but they didn't have a bike ready or the man-power to help him. So, they put him in touch with Troy Lee and he will be riding a Troy Lee Designs Red Bull Honda alongside Jeff Ward, David Pingree and Cassidy Anderson.


Nicky tested the bike several times this week and promptly posted lap times at Adams Cart Track in Riverside, one of the local Supermoto tracks, that were a full second quicker than the previous fastest lap at that track. Nicky follwed that up with some laps alongside his new teammates at the Honda supercross test track where he was a little less comfortable. Still, Hayden will be a favorite when the final blasts off the line for the Supermoto final this Saturday at 4:00pm PST. Watch it live on ESPN.

He better not injure himself. I know he is on summer break, but if I were Honda I would nix this right away. I will watch him race though.

When he wqas riding for Honda(WSBK I think, before his MotoGP days), him and his 2 brothers took the podium at the national flat track competition. Honda and his techs set up a dirtbike for him and he killed. I bet Yamaha is supplying the bike, parts, tech and labor. After all, thats what racing sponsorship is all about.

BTW, Nicky went straight to Motogp from AMA Superbike.

With his dirt track pedigree, and a long history of being fast on pavement, plus all the off season and between race training he does on dirt, I'm sure he'll post a more than respectable finish here
