Nicky Hayden Number 69 Retirement at COTA MotoGP

One of the highlights of MotoGP was a touching tribute and number retirement for the Kentucky Kid Nicky Hayden's number #69.

Ducati North America's Sales Manager Jason Routhier gave a pretty touching benediction, talking about how much of an influence Nicky was on racing.
Then, the entire family, including AMA racer Roger Lee Hayden and Tommy Hayden, as well as his father Earl, unveiled a beautiful tribute bike and one of Nicky's old Desmosedici GP12's motorcycles.
