Superbike News

The tenth round of the Superbike World Championship will take place over the weekend of July 30th, 31st and August 1st at the historic Silverstone circuit in Northamptonshire, UK.

Roger Lee Hayden is just back from Laguna Seca in the USA where he participated to the MotoGP race, reaching a respectable eleventh place in the USGP race.

Roger Lee Hayden says: “I’m just back from the USA as I raced in MotoGP Laguna Seca race. It was an exciting experience for me also because I reached the eleventh place that’s an amazing position that I have never reached in Superbike.”

Roger Lee is looking forward to the new race circuit as this will help level the playing field with all the other more experienced World SBK riders.

“I’ve never been to Silverstone and so I’m excited to go there. It will be good to ride a completely unknown track and as it is new to everyone, it means that no one has any particular advantage.”

Nicky Hayden spoke with Roger Lee at Laguna Seca and provided his younger sibling with some brotherly advice.

“All I know of the track so far is what my brother Nicky told me and he said that Silverstone is a great track and so I’m really looking forward to it.”
