    Nicky Hayden's iconic #69 will be retired from premier class racing in a special ceremony at the Circuit of the Americas this weekend.

    The event kicks off at Midday on Friday and will see FIM President Jorge Viegas and Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta preside over a ceremony attended by Hayden's family and friends in which the Kentucky Kid's #69 will be officially retired from the MotoGP class.

    Later that day, the MotoGP paddock will join Hayden's family, friends and track marshals at Turn 18 'Hayden Hill' grass berm, where Hayden's 2006 Championship-winning Repsol Honda will be on display.

    Race day will then see the Hayden family present at the front of the MotoGP grid, together with Nicky’s 2006 RC211V.
