Misano officials have just approved for the Nicky Hayden memorial garden to be planted in Rimini, Italy.
Located where the incident happened just last year, the garden will be named “Giardino Nicky Hayden”.
The garden will only be a few minutes away from the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli and will be launched on 22 May 2018.
It has been almost a year since the tragic passing of MotoGP Legend, Nicky Hayden who was unfortunately involved in a road traffic accident last May while riding his bicycle in Rimini, Italy. This year, the Misano officials have approved for a Nicky Hayden memorial garden to be planted in commemoration of the American rider who passed away at 35 years of age.
In a report made Italians news team Rimini Today, the memorial garden is a joint effort by some of Nicky Hayden’s closest friends. One of them is none other than Denis Pazzaglini who happens to be his chief mechanic during his Repsol Honda days. Their friendship was formed when Hayden was riding with the Repsol Honda team which also resulted in him becoming the 2006 MotoGP World Champion.
Those who are interested to visit the garden after it has been completed should know that it’ll be located where the incident happened between Ca ‘Raffaelli and via Tavoleto which is only five minutes from the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli.
The opening ceremony of the garden which will be named “Giardino Nicky Hayden” has been scheduled for launch on 22 May 2018; the first anniversary of Nicky Hayden’s passing.
