Beating himself up and potentially crippling wrist injury to carry for the rest of his life.... So he can ride a bike designed to be hopelessly uncompetitive.

I like Nicky as a rider. But IMO It's way past time that he and ALL non factory pilots cried enough and told Dorna to ram it. Riders are using up their careers as grid fillers, as Dorna exploit them while failing them utterly.

Without non factory entrants MotoGP hasn't enough entrants. Yet they are treated as 3rd class grid fillers so the Factory teams get a field to humiliate and look good for fans too damn stupid to care.

Maybe if the privateers all pulled the plug then Dorna would be forced to reconsider and put a series in place where all entrants got a genuinely fair go, not just expected to waste careers and risk their health so that idiots can call them carp for not being able to beat Marquez.

Get out Nicky. You'll get no thanks nor kudos for staying and zero chance of a competitive ride.

Injured with 2 DNS's and still only 4 points back from so called "superstar" Redding. Get healthy Nick and put little Scotty back in his place. Despite the hate, I know damn well you're the superior rider.

MotoMarc: No doubt time to retire or go back to AMA. He's been done for a long long time. Reoccuring injuries are never a good sign but maybe a sign telling you to stop before it gets much worse.

Go back to the AMA?

What are you smoking?

LOL! Yeah NH should go back to the series that the Dummy Motorsports Group destroyed, great idea!!! AMA racing is dead, unless it's MotoX.

WSBK time or bust.

"Nicky is a solid rider and did a decent job in 2006."

With all due respect, I'd call a MotoGP title more than decent. The 2006 field was more stacked with talent than the present MotoGP grid. Also, it's not like the Pedrosa's, Menaldri's, Stoner's, etc didn't want to win the title..

Indeed. In 2005 Marco finished ahead of Hayden. The 06 EVO bike was slated for Marco, but Marco never got a whiff of it. Marco and Capi were ahead of Hayden and Rossi in the WC until Gibers took out half the grid at CAT (in the first corner) in a historic bonehead move. Gibs, Marco & Capi ended up in the hospital, while Capi missed two races. Marco, Gibs & capi were significantly injured and as far as the Mediterranean amigos were concerned, their WC hopes were gone in 60 secs. It then became a two man race. NH should send a Spanish ham every year to Sete.

Fully agree with TalentFan. Time is now for Hayden to think about his health and career. SBK has got to be a consideration if he wants to continue with a prosperous career. His spot in the GP game-plan is a joke.

Very truly a class act, his ability and heart merit a better bike, for those who believe Redding the superior rider, you don't KNOW Nick. Barring his wrist he is in excellent physical shape I would love to see him on a competitive ride somewhere.

Hope Hayden gets fit so when Redding whips him again then the hayden fans wont have anymore excuses.
If hayden was any good then ducati wouldnt have sacked him last year and suzuki would be knocking his door down to sign him up next year,,but hes rubbish now so that wont happen
After 11 years of factory bikes he has had more than his fair share. Retire with dignity
