Photos: Nicky Hayden takes knee down literally

Dailies -


These photos speak for themselves, but you guessed it, Nicky Hayden was literally getting his knee down, with no puck in the way, at yesterday’s Indianapolis Grand Prix. As in flesh/tarmac interface. Yuck.

Hayden tore off the knee puck and a good portion of his leathers when he caught it on the curbing during a front end slide on the third lap. Unfazed, Nicky continued his pace, finishing the race in [Spoiler Alert!] sixth place.

Posting these pictures on Twitter, Hayden said, “Left a lil skin on the track but in the top 3… No pain no gain!!!”

In other news, Fox News plans to alert Child Services of Earl Hayden’s neglect.

    I see the Virgin Mary. She weeps bloody tears for Nicky’s loss.

    I think that scrape is on his arm from his crash in practice on Friday. It doesn’t matter though, the point is understood.

    I’ve dragged a knee in jeans before, but is was nothing like this. That’s rough.

    Yeah. I’ve done that before myself. You don’t feel it until it’s too late. Then, you’re all like, “Dammit!”
