Hayden to test at Mugello

Tuesday, 17 April 2012

The Ducati Team rider will make up for time lost in pre-season by joining the Bologna factory's test team at Mugello on Wednesday and Thursday.

On Wednesday and Thursday of this week, Nicky Hayden will join the Ducati Test Team during the final two days of a three-day test at Mugello, with the goal of making up for time lost during the winter testing season due to injuries incurred at the 2011 Valencia Grand Prix and in a December training incident.

This will give the American the opportunity to carry out set-up tests that he was not able to complete prior to the start of the 2012 season. Hayden will join official test rider Franco Battaini, who is already on track today (Tuesday) as he continues his development work on the GP12.

As usual, these updates will be tried by Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden during future tests.
