Hayden heads to Thailand ready to learn more

Hayden treating the second round of the 2016 WSBK championship as part of his learning curve

NICKY Hayden has said that he's heading to Thailand ready to learn more about World Superbikes and the Honda Fireblade.

At the first round of the season at Philip Island in Australia, a track Hayden knows well, the 2006 MotoGP world champion enjoyed some solid results thanks to ninth and fourth place finishes. Aside from some sponsorship events and videos of the Chang International Circuit, Hayden has next to no experience at the track and is still adapting to life on the production bike, Pirelli tyres and a foreign electronics package.

He says he's heading to round two with almost no expectations and little pressure place on his shoulders.

'I'm looking forward to the race weekend. I have been to Thailand a couple of times before due to sponsor obligations and I always had a great reception. It is clear that people here are really passionate about the sport and hungry to know more about it.

'I've had a look at the track with some videos and it looks quite nice, I will have a proper look at it on my Fireblade on Friday morning. This is going to be a good learning weekend for me as I will get a better idea of our potential, given the lack of testing before the round.'
