Hayden prepared to repeat his success in Italy

Nicky Hayden has recovered his usual optimism after putting in a good performance at the circuit of Le Mans last weekend. That is even though he fell in the French GP and could not finish. Moreover, the two days of free training after the race let him try out modifications on the set up of his bike which should help him get a good result at Mugello, a circuit that he has good memories of.

The two sessions of free training at Le Mans made it possible for the team to do some tests on the RC212V. To be specific the American tried out some solutions to the problems he is encountering on the set up, as well as the fine tuning. Hayden emphasised that these two days have allowed him to work in the wet, on both the bike and the tyres. The result will be seen in the next few races, above all in the most imminent one at the circuit of Mugello on 3rd June.

Nicky Hayden has good memories of the Italian GP, especially last year", as he finished on top of the podium, the third of his career, and which helped to make last season into a great one for him and which he crowned with the World Championship in his pocket.

Nicky Hayden is still recovering from his fall in the French GP last weekend, and which forced him to retire from the race. The Repsol Honda team rider is still in pain although he was grateful for the chance to have these extra test sessions so that he could improve his bike for the forthcoming races in Europe.
