Hayden to start 100th GP on Ducati debut

Ducati newcomer to celebrate 100th race in the premier class this weekend.

Former MotoGP World Champion Nicky Hayden has more than one reason to look forward to Sunday’s Commercialbank Grand Prix of Qatar, his debut race for the Ducati Marlboro team. The American is making the 100th Grand Prix appearance of his career this weekend, joining an elite club of riders to reach the milestone.

Of the seven members of the premier class ‘100 club’ (for those who have participated in a century of races in the MotoGP during the four-stroke era) only Hayden, Valentino Rossi, Colin Edwards and Loris Capirossi are still active competitors in the 800cc category.

In the following video motogp.com celebrates Hayden’s 100th Grand Prix with a look back over his MotoGP career, from his debut in 2003 to his most recent podium and taking in his three race victories and twenty-five podiums along the way.
