Question Will Nicky Hayden win again?

What happened to Nicky Hayden? Will he win again?

As a teammate to Rossi, Pedrosa, and Stoner, he has shown that he isn't in the same class. When they would win, he would barely land on the podium. I think he is a nice guy, a good wing man, but it's time his MotoGP seat went to someone hungrier. I would love to see him move to WSBK.

as a team mate to Rossi he was a rookie. as a team mate to Pedrosa he became world champion before getting mobbed out by Puig. at Ducati he did what every Ducati rider besides Stoner did - fade on a shit bike. Now he got fooled into riding a 'production racer' which is a lame duck.

I certainly don't think its a lack of hunger by any means. As a standard he puts it more laps than anyone on the grid in order to improve his chances or develop the bike at testing. While I will certainly agree he's in the twilight of his career, especially in the GP's, he typically tops the open bikes, and other than Stoner, he was riding around the same place/pace as his teammate, and I wouldn't consider Dovi or Rossi a slouch. I think if Nicky had one of the LCR bikes or Alvaro's bike we could see him in the top 8 without question. He's no where near the level of Marc, Jorge, or Dani (when he's on), but still not the back marker some portray him to be.

This is nonsense. Most of the guys racing will either never win again or never win period. No Nicky will never win again. This series if full of guys who will never win a race.

3 wins in 185 starts and 10 full seasons on factory bikes is a pretty poor record so, no, he's not going to be winning again. I doubt he'd have the chops to run anywhere near the front in WSBK either.
