Hayden linked with LCR for 2014 season
18 August 2013 – Departing Ducati rider Nicky Hayden looks set to clinch an LCR Honda ride next season, with team boss Lucio Cecchinello stating over the Indianapolis Grand Prix weekend that he is interested in recruiting the 2006 World Champion.
Earlier this year it was confirmed that Hayden would be leaving the Italian marque after five seasons, and his future in the sport has since been uncertain. Stefan Bradl is currently under contract with the LCR squad, and it is therefore likely that the two will join forces as team-mates.
Hayden is no stranger to Honda machinery, having clinched his 2006 title whilst riding for the Japanese manufacturer.
