Superbike rider Nicky Hayden in 'serious condition' after being hit by auto

2006 MotoGP champion Nicky Hayden, who now competes in the World Superbike Championship, has been seriously injured in an road accident while bicycle riding in Rimini, Italy.

The American is famous for narrowly piping Valentino Rossi to the 2006 MotoGP title, ending the Italian's half-decade dominance of the sport.

Hayden also raced for Ducati before moving into WSBK a year ago, claiming one race win for Honda en route to fifth place in the riders' championship.

There is no further information at this time.

Hayden, who was in Italy following a race at nearby Imola, was transported to a local hospital for treatment. We were team-mates with Honda in his rookie year, 2003, when he was a young debutant having his first European experience.

"But my fondest memory of him is when he came to shake my hand after the unlucky Valencia 2015 race, during the victory lap".

He was being housed in Souza-Baranowski prison while serving a life sentence for being convicted of killing Odin Lloyd in 2013.

The 2006 Moto GP Champion was reportedly riding his bicycle with others before he was thrown on the the hood of a vehicle in a collision.

The Superbike World Championship says the incident occurred Wednesday along the Rimini coast.

"All we can confirm is that Nicky was involved in an incident while cycling and has been transferred to a hospital near Rimini for treatment".

"We would like to thank everyone for their kind wishes and messages of support and the assistance of emergency and medical services".

UPDATE: Dorna states possible surgery for Nicky Hayden.
