Sadly the 2006 MotoGP champ has succumbed to his injuries after being struck by a car while bicycling with some friends near Rimini, Italy last week.  The Kentucky Kid was only thirty-five.
Godspeed Nicky.

John,
A truly awful outcome.
Competing in the environment in which he did, it seems almost perverse that he should be struck down, whilst riding a bicycle.
Rest In Peace, Nicky.

Indeed. First, one of your side's (of the pond) over here (Bob) And now, one of our side's over there.

Very sad. Sad

I have so many great memories of Nicky.  Probably my favorite was from back in 2007 when some buddies & I were camped at Mid-Ohio for the AMA Superbike weekend.  After the track activities for Saturday were wrapped up we took a stroll through the paddock and we heard that familiar thick Kentucky drawl.  Here's the reigning world champ standing there in a t-shirt & shorts, just shooting the bull with the guys.  His brothers Tommy, and Roger were both racing that weekend, and since it was a off weekend for MotoGP, Nicky flew in to hangout with his brothers (and the rest of his old AMA colleagues) for the weekend.
I was wearing (and still have) a ball cap that was produced by Arai helmets decorated in his 2006 helmet colors, and he, Tommy, and Roger all signed it for me.  It was a regular part of my race day strip when attending a motorbike race, sadly now its been retired.
