All I can see is that he is in extremely critical condition, where did you find more?  Its wild, he races a motorcycle for a living, and something like this while riding a bicycle.

Some guy called Rick Dorfmeyer told me Nicky died. This guy is on Facebook. I believed him but you're right there's no further news.
He's still hanging in there according to the news.  I hope this guy is wrong.

Unfortunately it has come to pass ... Text from BBC News.

Former MotoGP champion Nicky Hayden has died aged 35, five days after being involved in a crash while cycling.

The American suffered "serious cerebral damage" after colliding with a car on the Rimini coastline in Italy on Wednesday, 17 May.

The 2006 MotoGP championship winner had been in the intensive care unit of Cesena's Maurizio Bufalini Hospital.

"We would like everyone to remember Nicky at his happiest - riding a motorcycle," his brother Tommy said.

A hospital statement issued on Thursday said Hayden had suffered "a serious polytrauma", which is a medical term to describe the condition of a person who has multiple traumatic injuries.

Hayden, who was nicknamed the Kentucky Kid, had competed for Red Bull Honda in the World Superbike Championship in Italy on 14 May.

Older brother Tommy, who was also a motorcycle racer, said the family had many "great and happy memories" of Hayden.
