Nicky Hayden at the FIM Superbike World Championship race in Italy over the weekend

The sole American in World Superbike, Nicky Hayden, was rushed to an Italian hospital near Rimini following a cycling crash Wednesday afternoon.

Although he featured in MotoGP as recently as a year ago, subbing for Jack Miller at Marc VDS Honda and for Dani Pedrosa at the factory Honda team, Hayden has focused on World Superbikes for the past two campaigns.

The 2006 MotoGP champion was then transported to a local hospital.

"The most lovely memory I have about him is when he came to shake my hand after the unlucky race of Valencia 2015".

Jorge Lorenzo tweeted, "stay strong Nicky, keep fighting!"

Parent of bus crash victim: "She thought it was all a dream"
There were 26 students, two staff members, one parent chaperone and one driver, according to a press release from the District. A bus filled with Philadelphia police personnel was in a caravan and stopped to offer assistance when the crash occurred.

He was taken to hospital with serious abdominal injuries and a severe concussion, sources said. Once Nicky's condition was stabilised, he was transferred to Maurizio Bufalini Hospital in Cesena and remains in the hospital's intensive care unit.

For this year's season, Nicky continued to race for the same team, but this time along with Stefan Bradl.

UPDATE: Dorna states possible surgery for Nicky Hayden. He's receiving medical attention in Italy, and we must now be patient...
