Crocked Repsol Honda star Nicky Hayden will be in Misano for this this weekend's MotoGP race and has been doing everything in his power to get fit including "the old voodoo stuff".

The former MotoGP world champion missed the last round at Brno after he injured his heel in a supermoto incident and, after the disaster team-mate Dani Pedorsa had, is probably not too bothered about it.

“I’m certainly excited to be getting back out there with the boys, because I hated missing Brno. I’ve been doing all the old ‘voodoo’ stuff they tell you to do: bone stimulators, lasers, ultrasound, all that stuff, I’m doing everything possible to get back. I had hoped my progress would be quicker," said The Kentucky Kid.


"I still need crutches at this stage, but unless something goes south I definitely plan on trying to ride. I’ve been seeing doctors, and I’m going to get something moulded to wear in my boot. I’ve been doing some training in the pool and a few things at the gym, nothing too crazy.

"Misano is almost a Laguna without the hills, it’s a tight little scrappy track where you need a bike you can be aggressive with. I enjoyed it last year but I’d just as soon they flipped it back around and go the old direction for those big lefts that used to go on to the back straightaway, I remember seeing the old 500s guys riding those on TV.”
