MotoGP: Nicky Hayden Models Dainese

MotoGP Dainese

At the Dainese and AGV Press Day at the D-Store in Costa Mesa, Calif., MotoGP Champion and Ducati factory motorcycle rider Nicky Hayden kick-started his modeling career, showing off the latest technical and casual wear from Dainese.

Hayden was a natural on the runway, as he struck poses with the ease of Gisele Bundchen and Kate Moss. Looking resplendent in his new Dainese Racing Pelle leather motorcycle jacket over a Dainese Grand Prix t-shirt, Hayden strutted his stuff for an audience of international motorcycle journalists.

However, not ready to quit his day job, Hayden will return to testing the Ducati Desmosedici GP11 in preparation for the 2011 MotoGP season with his new Ducati teammate Valentino Rossi.
