US racer Hayden still in "extremely critical" condition

US racer Hayden still in

"He is still in intensive care and suffered a severe polytrauma, resulting in very serious brain damage", the hospital added.

"Nicky Hayden's condition remains extremely serious".

He won three races in a career from 2003-2015, before switching to Superbike full-time, although he made two starts in MotoGP a year ago to fill in for injured Honda rider Jack Miller.

The 35-year-old American, who now races for the Red Bull Honda World Superbike team, was hurt while on a training exercise along the Rimini coastline when his bicycle was hit by a auto.

The former MotoGP champion sustained brain damage when hit by a auto when cycling in Italy and has remained in intensive care since the crash.

The Maurizio Bufalini Hospital, where Hayden is being treated, said on Friday that his condition "remains unchanged" and "is extremely critical".

He suffered head and chest injuries in the accident and has been placed in an induced coma, according to reports. He was over there to race in the World Superbike championship on Sunday. He was 13th in the points following the latest Superbike race at Imola.

Hayden's fiancee Jackie and team members were joined at his bedside by brother Tommy and mother Rose who flew in from the United States.

Valentino Rossi said: "It's a great shame because Nicky is a great rider for sure, a great talent, a world champion and always at the top, but especially a very good guy". In the MotoGP, he ran 218 Grand Prix races with three wins and 28 podium places.

"Come on Nicky, we're all with you".
