Nicky Hayden: 'A motorcycle's a motorcycle...'

Talking to RoadRacerX magazine, Nicky Hayden says that riding motocross bikes may be one of the best ways to improve your riding skills for the track. 'There’s a benefit to it. You can go to the gym and do curls, ride your bicycle, and do cross-training, but the truth is that when it comes to training the mind and muscles how to push the limits on a motorcycle, there’s really only one way — riding motorcycles! I know dirt bikes don’t always carry over exactly, but it’s surprisingly close. A motorcycle’s a motorcycle, and the coordination and balance needed to ride them are pretty consistent,' says Nicky.

So forget the bicycle, get that motocrosser out of the garage, and hit some berms...!
