We wish the news were better, but the medical condition of Nicky Hayden is the same as when we previously reported. According to the Maurizio Bufalini Hospital in Cesena, Italy, Hayden “remains unchanged” and “is extremely critical” just two days since being hit by a car as he trained on his bicycle. Further description of the extent of his injuries has not been released since the hospital’s prior statement of ”serious polytrauma with subsequent serious cerebral damage.”

Hayden’s fiancé Jackie, along with his brother Tommy Hayden and his mother Rose Hayden, are at the hospital supporting him while he continues to battle for his life.

As with all of Nicky’s fans throughout the world, we await good news regarding his recovery.

He’s always been a fighter.

Like most of the best happenings in his life, Evans stumbled into his motojournalism career. While on his way to a planned life in academia, he applied for a job at a motorcycle magazine, thinking he’d get the opportunity to write some freelance articles. Instead, he was offered a full-time job in which he discovered he could actually get paid to ride other people’s motorcycles – and he’s never looked back. Over the 25 years he’s been in the motorcycle industry, Evans has written two books, 101 Sportbike Performance Projects and How to Modify Your Metric Cruiser, and has ridden just about every production motorcycle manufactured. Evans has a deep love of motorcycles and believes they are a force for good in the world.
