Nicky Hayden looks ahead to the first race of the 2015 MotoGP™ World Championship in Qatar.
The Aspar MotoGP Team is ready to go into battle under the Losail floodlights, with Nicky Hayden all set to start his thirteenth season in MotoGP with the same excitement and anticipation as his first. The 'Kentucky Kid' has trained harder than ever over the winter to be ready to compete in the most competitive field in recent MotoGP history.
“The show is about to start and we are ready for a new season. Obviously I am not a rookie any more but I still feel the same level of excitement and I have the same desire as I do every season. We have a huge challenge on our hands so I am looking forward to getting started in the first race of the year. As we have seen during preseason the level in MotoGP this year is extremely high, which I think is a good thing for the championship. I really like the Losail circuit, it is fun to ride. It can be a little dirty at first but the grip improves as the weekend progresses and it is always fun to ride at night. The team have done a great job over the winter and we have made strong progress. Clearly we still need to work on some areas, especially with the electronics, but hopefully I can do a good job in Qatar to make the team and my fans proud.”
