Oh No / Hears whats out there
Hayden is currently in hospital in Italy following a collision with a car while cycling.
Red Bull Honda World Superbike rider Nicky Hayden has been involved in a serious training accident while riding his bicycle in Rimini, Italy, today.

The 2006 MotoGP World Champion was cycling with a group of riders along the Rimini coastline when he collided with a Peugeot.

He has been taken to Cesena Hospital in Italy where the 35-year-old underwent surgery and has been placed in a medically induced coma to aid recovery.

We will have more on this story as it breaks from our WorldSBK correspondent, Gordon Ritchie.

At least he won't have to ride that shitty Honda anymore... He can retire now and live a peaceful life or maybe be a team manager and mentor some other riders for years to come. I am surprised though that they haven't transported him back to the States for treatment while he is in the induced coma.

Why fly him back?

Your medics have more experience with gunshot trauma than bicycle accidents no? :-)

Apart from having an aircraft equipped to maintain an induced coma (if there is such a thing), what are they able to do if complications occurs over the Atlantic?

Nicky races with Ten Kate because he wants to race. This based on his abilities and funds available at this time. Or do you suggest he is "entitled"? Because of what?

I ride both motorcycles and bicycles at speed (will spare yous the pictures of a 54yr old male in Lycra... :-) ). Every time you go for a spin (or wake up if you like) you roll the dice.

Fight Nicky, FIGHT!!!

PS: He will receive the best medical treatment, irrespective of who he is or what his medical plan says, am sure of that.

Old enough to know better, young enough not to care.

In terms of overall medical care Italy ranks well below the USA in quality.

Yes, a man and even more to the point a celebrity with millions of dollars at his disposal generally gets the best possible care period, but if that means the care is better in another country then I would expect to see him put on a flight an moved appropriately if his condition will allow it.

He is in Italy, not Iraq. I am sure they can provide very high level care where he is, transferred once already to a hospital equipped for serious trauma....I fear now that it is out of the hands of doctors and it is just wait and see.
