Nicky Hayden: MotoGP or WSB in 2014?

Nicky Hayden’s priority might be to secure a factory prototype ride for the 2014 MotoGP campaign, but the popular American is currently weighing up potential options in World Superbikes. The 2006 world champion’s place at Ducati is under serious threat again, with the Bologna factory locked in fresh talks with on form British rider Cal Crutchlow to partner Andrea Dovizioso...

I'd like to see how he would perform on the Tech 3 M1 or even the factory Honda or Yamaha. I know it won't happen but I think it would be interesting to see what pace he has. His loyalty to Ducati is commendable given the poor results of the bike.

While at Ducati

Dovi takes a new frame to Germany and crashes in the first 10 mins of FP1 - what a dolt!

Hayden crests the waterfall, feigns a highside 'Mamola style' taking to the grass to run down the hill and rejoin the track - what a boy!

Hayden on a Tech 3 wouldn't be so bad but the question can they afford him I think not. Riding one of those will revive his results in my view compared to what NH is on now. A return to Honda is completely out of question given what happened after he won the title.

I would be nice to see Nicky

on a bike he can run at the front on. It's been so long in MotoGP, since we saw Nicky near the podium on a regular basis, that we don't know if he can ever be a top 3 guy again.

I think WSB could be good for him, he could have 5 or 6 good years there. Rather than being a highly paid also ran in MotoGP.

WSB

Replacement for Checa maybe? Or maybe teamate? Get out of MotoGP which has caught the Spanish flu, you know you are not getting on a Yamaha or a Honda which are the two top steeds in the field. I hope Nicky stops wasting valuable years with that bike. I feel it only makes your stock go down in the motogp world. WSB has plenty of bikes out there and hopefully Yamaha will return to the series next year maybe which will deepen the field even more.

I'd like to see Hayden in WSB as I won't have MotoGP next year and he's always been one of my preferred riders especially after what happened in 2007 with honda and puig. Being realistic he won't get a competative bike in MotoGP unless Ducati pull something out of the bag which doesn't seem likely as they look to be stagnating relative to the front whilst with the aid of the softer rear CRT bikes look to be improving and catching.

As a result I hope he does get a competative WSB bike even if he doesn't take the title just to be at the pointy end a few times would be good to see.
