Hayden joins Doohan for Isle of Man TT lap

The Ducati MotoGP rider, who will be visiting the venue for the first time, is the latest world champion rider to lap the famous road racing course.
Former MotoGP World Champion Nicky Hayden will make a high-profile visit to this year's Isle of Man TT as part of the Mountain Course Centenary celebrations.

The American racer, MotoGP champion in 2006, will take part in the Arai Parade Lap alongside 2010 TT champion Ian Hutchinson and five-time 500cc World Champion Mick Doohan on Wednesday 8th June.

He will also be on hand to present the trophy for the Monster Energy Supersport Race 2 before travelling to Silverstone for the British round of the 2011 MotoGP schedule.

"I'm really looking forward to going to the Isle of Man,” said the Ducati rider. “I've been to pretty much every kind of motorcycle race you can imagine - the Daytona 200, the Jerez MotoGP, the Anaheim Supercross, the Namur World Motocross.

“But I've never been to the Isle of Man or any other real street race. The TT is just one of those events that every race fan wants to see eventually."
