Awful things happen, all over the world, to anyone. And it’s a terrible shame for something so awful to have happened to one so loved as Nicky Hayden, exactly 1 year ago today.

Celebrate it like a Rossi!

God damn it, dear Yamaha, dig in the back of your garage and give Valentino back his 2016 Jerez winning machine. The last two chassis you made (2017, 2018) seem nothing but a horrible waste of time.
