Honda rider Nicky Hayden is feeling positive ahead of the next round of the World Superbike Championship at Motorland Aragon in Spain this weekend.
Hayden is the first MotoGP World Champion to make the move into World Superbikes and has done well so far, finishing fourth at Phillip Island and a top five finish in Thailand last time out.
In an interview, Hayden said that he liked the Aragon circuit and cannot wait to be racing again.
“This two-week break has definitely felt longer than it was and now I’m ready to get back on track and reunite with the team,” said Hayden.
“It’s the first European round of my WorldSBK career and clearly it will be a bit different in terms of schedule and atmosphere in the paddock, given the bigger presence of teams and riders from other classes.
“Aragon is not an easy track, there are definitely some technical sections with downhill braking and blind corner entries, but it’s a great circuit to ride on so I can’t wait to get started.”
