Nicky Hayden breaks shoulder, ribs

"Hey kids - text your friends and tell them to bet against Aspar."
Hayden's broken ribs and shoulder are hopefully the end of his string of bad luck.

Nicky Hayden is recovering from broken ribs and a fractured left shoulder after a training accident.

Hayden was riding a Honda XR100 at an indoor flat track training facility when he collided with another rider. It was his first time on two wheels since breaking his wrist in a crash at the first corner of Valencia.

The first test round for the 2012 MotoGP season is coming fast, scheduled for January 31 at Sepang in Malaysia. It’s unclear if Hayden’s injuries will be healed in time for him to participate.
