MotoGP's Hayden dies in cycling crash

The 35 year old, who rides for Red Bull's Honda World Superbike team was treated on site and then moved to the Bufalini hospital in Cesena, Italy.

The former Formula One driver Mark Webber described Hayden, the last American to win a MotoGP world championship, as a "beautiful person, genuine and real".

He was then transferred to the Bufalini Hospital in Cesena, where he succumbed to his injuries five days later. His fiancee, mother and brother Tommy were at his side when he passed away.

"As well as being a true champion on the track, Nicky was a fan favourite off it due to his kind nature, relaxed demeanour, and the huge smile he invariably carried everywhere". They said the images suggested Hayden had failed to stop at an intersection and was hit full on by the passing auto.

Every racer understands when they hop on their motorcycle, or inside their auto, there's always a chance they might be seriously injured or killed.

Trump budget slashes safety-net programs
The budget includes $25 billion for a plan to give parents six weeks of paid leave after the birth or adoption of a child. The new budget also covers "mandatory" spending, including such big-ticket items as Medicare and Social Security.

Hayden won the MotoGP title in 2006, finishing narrowly ahead of Italian great Valentino Rossi. "We will never forget you!" wrote three-time MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez.

So now, with permission from the Hayden family, we at Gabi Toy have made a decision to release the final batch of teddy bears.

Dani Pedrosa, Hayden's teammate in 2006 when he won the world title, posted a photo on twitter of the American along with the words "Always in my heart, champ".

After switching to the World Superbike championship past year, Hayden finished fifth overall.
