Motorcycling-Hayden in intensive care in Italy after cycling accident

"The young man, who is still in the intensive care unit of Cesena's Bufalini Hospital, has suffered a serious polytrauma with subsequent serious cerebral damage".

United States Honda rider Nicky Hayden celebrates after winning the world Moto GP championship at the Cheste racetrack near Valencia, Spain.

Hayden, who had raced in the World Superbike Championship at Imola in Italy last Sunday, won the MotoGP championship in 2006.

Hayden was hit by a auto while cycling in Italy, and rushed to hospital with severe chest and head injuries.

The 35-year-old American was hit by a vehicle while training south of the Italian seaside resort of Rimini on Wednesday and was rushed to hospital with severe chest and head injuries.

Nicky Hayden's medical condition was called "extremely critical" by the hospital in Italy where he was taken after he was hit by a auto while bicycle training Wednesday.

The Maurizio Bufalini Hospital, where Hayden is being treated, said on Friday that his condition "remains unchanged" and "is extremely critical".




Doctors placed the 2006 MotoGP champion into a medically induced coma, the BBC reported.

Honda said he was taken initially by ambulance to a hospital near the coastal resort of Rimini before being transferred to Cesena. In the MotoGP, he ran 218 Grand Prix races with three wins and 28 podium places.

"Come on Nicky, we're all with you", he said.

Stoner and Hayden, both MotoGP World Champions, were brought together by Ducati to form one of the strongest teams in 2009.

The dangers of training on public roads have been highlighted in recent weeks by other accidents affecting professional athletes. The incident occurred in eastern Italy after his cycle collided with a auto.

"Hayden was involved in a training accident whilst cycling in Italy".
