Nicky Hayden has announced that he will be taking part in this year’s Isle on Man TT.
Hayden will get the chance to do a parade lap and will take a Ducati 1198 SP on a circuit of the Mountain Course. Hayden will be joined on the lap by Mick Doohan and road-racing legend Ian Hutchinson (who last year set a record by sweeping five solo wins at the TT)
Nicky Hayden said:
“I’m really looking forward to going to the Isle of Man,” said Hayden, who recently gave Ducati its first podium finish of the season, in Jerez, Spain. “I’ve been to pretty much every kind of motorcycle race you can imagine-the Daytona 200, the Jerez MotoGP, the Anaheim Supercross, the Namur World Motocross-but I’ve never been to the Isle of Man or any other real street race. People have always told me, ‘You need to go to the TT,’ and now I’m finally going to get my chance. I’m really looking forward to meeting the riders, and I want to see what they do and how they do it. I’m not sure what to expect, but I do know it takes a brave rider, which is something I respect.”
