August 28th, 2004

Repsol Honda Team star, Nicky Hayden broke his right collarbone in a training accident in Italy this afternoon (Saturday).

The 23-year-old American fell from a Honda CRF450 whilst training in Pavia, near Milan in northern Italy. He is under the care of MotoGP doctor, Dr Claudio Costa, and has had a plate inserted by the specialist in a short operation this afternoon.

A decision as the whether Hayden will take part in the next GP in Estoril, Portugal, scheduled next weekend (Sept 3rd- 5th) will be taken after his condition has been accessed by his medical team and the Repsol Honda Team in due course.

Geez dude, don't be so quick to think he's gonna be out for a long time. Racers have ridden with some pretty nasty injuries before, he'll do fine. This is the last thing he needed right now, but he'll come back possibly this week, but most likely next week.

I remember seeing Duhamel's mechanics a few years back, having to pick him up and put him on his bike. That was the year he hit the wall (can't remember the track), but he still rode his ass off even though he had to use a cane to get to his bike :D It's going to be tough on Hayden to be competative with that injury though, supporting all your weight and flicking the bike around, plus enduring the length of the entire race at a pace? I was really enjoying his battles in the GP ranks, and then this happens.

I was thinking the same thing along with Duhamel. Depending on how bad the break is, I don't see him missing any GP's. :headbang
