OnTheThrottle Video Interview With Nicky Hayden At Monza

With two free weekends between Jerez and Le Mans for the MotoGP riders, a couple of prominent riders took the time to visit the World Superbike races at Monza, and catch up with friends and family. While Ben Spies was in the Yamaha garage catching up with some of the team members he won the WSBK title with last year, Nicky Hayden was in the Ducati hospitality, hanging out with his brother Roger Lee, currently racing with the Pedercini Kawasaki team. While he was there, the voice of World Superbikes Jonathan Green caught up with Nicky for OnTheThrottle, to talk about how Roger Lee is getting on, about how Nicky is getting on with the Ducati and whether the Kentucky Kid has any plans to join the World Superbike paddock.

First that hilarious interview with Greg White and now another great interview. My opinion of Nicky was that he was uber-professional, overly polite and frankly a bit corporate. But the interviews I've seen lately show a relaxed, confident person who's willing to share personal information and give candid responses. Maybe it's the Italian influence?
