Hayden to take part in Mugello test

Nicky Hayden to join the Ducati Test Team at Mugello this week.
This Wednesday and Thursday, Ducati MotoGP star Nicky Hayden will join the factory's Test Team during the final two days of a three-day test at Mugello.

The aim of the test is to allow the American, who finished sixth and top Ducati at round one in Qatar, to make up for time lost during winter testing due to injuries at the 2011 Valencia Grand Prix and then in a December training incident.

Hayden is thus expected to use the time as an opportunity to carry out set-up tests that he wasn't able to complete prior to the start of the season. The 2006 world champion will join official test rider Franco Battaini, who is already on track today (Tuesday) as he continues his development work on the GP12.

Those updates will be tried by Valentino Rossi and Hayden during future tests.

Round two of the 2012 MotoGP season takes place at Jerez, Spain, from April 27-29.

Despite being the best rider ducati currently have, but classified as the second rider in Factory ducati squad, Hayden is showing more commitment to getting things working than being anywhere else or placing emphasis on irrelevant media and sports!
