Busy weekend for Hayden on the West Coast

Busy weekend for Hayden on the West Coast

Out of the public eye since his shoulder operation at the tail end of last year, MotoGP World Champion Nicky Hayden made two appearances last weekend at sporting events on the West Coast of America. The Repsol Honda rider was back trackside for the opening round of the AMA Supercross season on Saturday in Southern California, accompanied by mother Rose and siblings Kathleen, Tommy and Roger Lee. It was a chance for fans to show their appreciation of the MotoGP star, who was interviewed on the stadium's big screen and had footage of his championship winning season replayed in front of the 45,000 spectators and the live television broadcast.

The World Champion makes his return to testing at the end of the month, continuing development of the Honda RC212V 800cc bike in Sepang.
