Former MotoGP champion Nick Hayden's wrist issues continue. The '02 AMA Superbike winner has been struggling with pain in his wrist for two rounds and because of the pain he has decided surgery is the only option.
Hayden said, "I worked really hard last week to try and recover with different kinds of therapy and a hyperbaric chamber but the injury to my right wrist has not improved. In France I was able to ride through the pain but this circuit is much faster and more demanding. After talking to the doctors it seems the smartest move is to undergo surgery next week in order to be fully fit again as soon as possible."
Hayden underwent wrist surgery in 2013.
