We all feel energetic and get mesmerized by watching our favorite sport bike riders vrooming up the track in the motor sport-concert. But what if the same person, all of a sudden, gets vanished and won’t be seen ever? The racing journey that started at the home-made track, and later stepping at the mini-bike racing, and AMA, and so on, came to an end when the passionate motorcycle racer, Nicky Hayden, met with an accident in Italy while cycling. The injuries caused by the collision with a car, which impacted the brain and back, took away the speeding star far away from the world. The fans are still in shock after hearing the sad news of Hayden.
Nicky took birth in a family where motorcycle racing was a culture. He was born in July 1981 in Owensboro, Kentucky, USA. Right from the age of three, the rider showed his footprints and passion towards racing. After growing up, Nicky hardly took time to grab those winning titles.
