Apr 15, 2011

The Dainese rider's scheduled visit, on Wednesday 8 June, will include an Arai Parade lap with five-time 2010 TT champion Ian Hutchinson as well as five-time Australian 500cc World Champion Mick Doohan.

The charismatic American, known as the ‘Kentucky Kid’, currently races for the Ducati Marlboro Team in the 2011 MotoGP championship with team-mate Valentino Rossi and finished on the podium in the second race of the season at Jerez following his ninth place at the opening round at Qatar.

Hayden is the youngest AMA Superbike champion in history, winning the title at the age of 21 in 2002, a year that also included victory in the Daytona 200. He moved to MotoGP in 2003, winning the 'Rookie of the Year' title in his debut season and ending the season fifth overall. Commenting on his visit to the Isle of Man he said: “I’m really looking forward to going to the Isle of Man. I’ve been to pretty much every kind of motorcycle race you can imagine - the Daytona 200, the Jerez MotoGP, the Anaheim Supercross, the Namur World Motocross - but I’ve never been to the Isle of Man or any other real street race. The TT is just one of those events that every race fan wants to see. I’m not sure what to expect, but I do know it takes a brave rider, which is something I respect.”
