Washington DC – Former MotoGP world champion
Nicky Hayden has suffered a training injury which has thrown his
participation in testing in Sepang, Malaysia at the end of next month
into doubt, his Ducati team said on Thursday.
The 30-year-old American was only just back on his bike after crashing at the Valencia Grand Prix in November.
This time, he broke his left shoulder blade and suffered two
fractured ribs, although Ducati said he would not necessarily have to
undergo surgery, pending an assessment of the injuries in California.
Winter testing is due to begin January 31 at Sepang and Hayden said
he hoped to heal in time after his misfortune at a private track near
his Owensboro, Kentucky home.
