Roger Lee Hayden Superbike Homecoming

Superbike Report

This year Roger Lee Hayden will be the sole US rider present on the grid for the World Superbike round at Miller Motorsports Park.

After motorcycle racing the first half of the season in Europe on tracks he had never seen before, this weekend Roger Lee will finally have the opportunity to give his best shot at a familiar racetrack, spurred on by the support of his home fans.

Roger Lee Hayden says: "At last we arrive at a World SBK circuit that I’ve already seen before, even though I haven’t raced there very much," declared the Kawasaki Pedercini man. "I’m not that keen on the layout but I’ll get a lot of support from my family, friends and fans who are coming to see me."

On the Italian team’s bike, the 26 year-old from Kentucky, brother of former world champion and Ducati MotoGP man Nicky, will be aiming to go higher than the fourteenth place scored in race 2 at Monza, his best result so far in the twelve races of his rookie WSB season.

"I’m looking forward to racing at Miller this weekend. We have to work well to get a good race set-up because I know this track is different from all the others on the calendar. A lot of friends will be coming along to see me race so I hope to be able to have two great races".

Roger Lee Hayden comes to Miller with only 2 World Championship points to his name, while series leader Leon Haslam has 222.
