About Nicky Hayden:
Nicky was riding by age 3 and racing two years after that, and the kids would turn endless laps around a humble short track on the family’s property, with Earl’s ever-present stopwatch tracking their progress. When he became eligible to turn pro on his 16th birthday in 1997, Nicky followed older brother Tommy into AMA racing. He almost immediately made a name for himself, advancing through increasingly competitive satellite squads for the first few seasons before earning the ’99 AMA 600 Supersport crown and landing on the powerful factory Honda outfit for 2000.
In the 2002 season, Nicky won the Daytona 200 and became the youngest AMA Superbike champion ever, earning a promotion to the MotoGP world championship with the potent Repsol Honda factory team. He notched a pair of podium finishes in his rookies season, and secured his first win in 2005 at his home race, the Laguna Seca round; the following year saw him complete a lifelong dream by taking the MotoGP world crown after a season-long battle with Valentino Rossi. Hayden moved to Ducati’s factory team in 2009, and he continues to ride for the popular Italian manufacturer today. The 2012 season marks the one-decade mark for Nicky Hayden competing as a factory rider in the world’s top road racing series.
Though he can now legitimately be considered a racing veteran, Nicky hasn’t lost a single iota of that enthusiasm and drive that has served him so well since he first climbed on a PW50 in the driveway of his family’s Owensboro home. He still works as hard as ever, and why not? The approach has served him well so far, as he remains one of the top motorcycle racers on the planet, with one of the largest and most fervent fan followings in the MotoGP championship. Not only that, but the best may well still be yet to come.
When looking for models to serve as inspiration for how to live a gratifying and fulfilling life, you could certainly do worse than to emulate Nicky Hayden.
