Hayden talks upcoming Indy MotoGP

Given his frustrating year so far a Hayden victory at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Brickyard would be a surprise, but in the tricky conditions last season the tough Kentuckian battled to second place in a curtailed motorcycle race – sending the American MotoGP fans into ecstasy, just as he did with his famous 2005 & 2006 wins on U.S. soil at Laguna Seca round.

Nicky Hayden Speaks…

"Indy is a great place and for racing it is just so famous," Hayden stated. "Obviously the track last year was really good to me and it’s a really challenging circuit with different types of layout. We go there to do the maximum, that’s all we can do."

"Sure I would like to say I am going there full of confidence, and everything is perfect but that’s not exactly the case. Anyway I’m looking forward to getting home, seeing all my fans, seeing all my people and seeing what we can do."

The patriotic Hayden had a best result of this year in fifth place at Laguna, and he is steadily finding some consistency on the Desmosedici, having finished sixth last weekend at Brno – his second best result to date with the Italian factory team.
