Hayden: Interesting to see what happens at Le Mans

After a strong start to the 2010 MotoGP season, Nicky Hayden heads for his most difficult circuit this weekend.

The American has finished fourth in the first two races of the season, but was less than two seconds from victory at round one in Qatar, then beat Ducati Marlboro team-mate Casey Stoner for the very first time at Jerez.

“Le Mans is probably the most difficult circuit on the calendar for me because I think it is the only place I've never been on the podium or the front row at, so it will be interesting to see how we go this year,” said Hayden, the 2006 world champion.

“As I have said a few times we have made a good start to the season and put two good races together but we have to keep our feet on the ground and keep working because our objective is to consistently perform at a high level and close the gap even further to those front guys.

“The last couple of tenths are definitely the hardest to find but I feel comfortable with the bike and the team, I'm enjoying myself and I feel confident about the rest of the season.”
