While he has always been invited to the invite only end of year Superprestigio race in Barcelona, American Nicky Hayden has spent the last few off-seasons re-habbing his wrist and was unable to race the event. That’s a pity as Hayden, like Wayne Rainey and many others, was a dirt tracker long before he ever dragged a knee in anger.
Now Hayden’s wrist seems fixed. Does this open the door for the former Grand National dirt track winner to mix it up with the likes of Marc Marquez, Brad Baker and Jared Mees on the tiny indoor Barcelona track?
The last we spoke to the former world champion and Peoria/Springfield/Del Mar short track winner Hayden he seemed open to the idea of racing the Barcelona event. He said if he’s in Europe, if he could ride a very good bike for a good team, then maybe, sure.
Sources close to the organization behind the event say that they are preparing an invite for Hayden.
