Hayden: “Each time I ride the bike I feel more confident”

Aspar MotoGP Team’s Nicky Hayden is feeling increasingly confident on his bike ahead of the Gran Premio Monster Energy de Catalunya.

Hayden showed strong pace at the start of the Italian GP before unfortunately crashing out.

Nicky Hayden: “We found a pretty good pace at Mugello so it was a shame that we didn't manage to finish the race off with a good result. Luckily, I wasn't injured in the crash and we can look forward to the Catalunya round, another great GP at a great track. The team is doing a fantastic job and each time I ride the bike I feel more confident. Catalunya is a really difficult track, where tyre wear is always an issue because of the number of long corners spent on the edge of the tyre. The good thing about Catalunya is that is has a bit of everything – some tight corners, some fast ones and some sections with hard braking. It is always a challenge to ride and I am looking forward to taking it on this weekend and scoring the best possible result.”
