Hayden starts 13th in Le Mans MotoGP

Rear grip and a lack of track time hit Nicky Hayden’s efforts to learn how to handle the Desmosedici GP9 at Le Mans, leaving the American targetting a speedy start in order to salvage a good result from the weekend in Le Mans.

13th – Nicky Hayden Speaks…

“We started over with some of the settings this weekend but like everybody the lack of track time at the moment is hurting us. We have made steady progress over the course of the weekend but at the moment I still don’t have the rear grip going into the corners that I need. We’ve made little steps in some areas that we need to build on but at the end of the day the time sheets don’t lie and we’re too far from the front of the grid. The priority tomorrow is to get a good start and go fast early in the race. It would be nice to have some fun and finish with a good result”.
