Roger Hayden: Jordan Suzuki Test | Video

2011 AMA Superbike Prep

Here’s some footage of Roger Lee Hayden discussing his first test aboard the Michael Jordan Motorsports National Guard Suzuki GSX-R1000 at Jennings GP in Jennings, Fla.

After a year racing for Kawasaki in the World Superbike Championship, the youngest of the Hayden brothers, Roger Lee Hayden, returns to AMA Pro Racing.

In 2011, Roger Lee Hayden will contest on the Michael Jordan Motorsports (MJM) National Guard #54 Suzuki GSX-R1000 in the Superbike Championship.

The 27-year-old Kentuckian will be teammates with another fresh face on the MJM Superbike team, Ben Bostrom. Bostrom, the 2009 Daytona 200 winner and 2008 AMA SuperSport Champion, was also at the Jennings test with Roger. Bostrom will compete on the #23 Jordan Suzuki GSX-R 1000.

Roger Hayden finished 19th this year in the World Superbike Championship after struggling with the ZX-10R all season. He has much better luck in AMA Pro Racing, taking the 2007 AMA SuperSport Championship; that same year he finished eight in the AMA Superbike Championship.

Roger is the youngest brother of 2006 MotoGP Champion Nicky Hayden and Rockstar Makita Suzuki rider Tommy Hayden, who finished second overall this year behind AMA Superbike winner Josh Hayes.

The first race of the nine-round season will be at Daytona March 11-12.
