TRAINED DE­SIRE: ROAD AT­LANTA 1993

Motorcyclist - - Framed - PHO­TOG­RA­PHY BY BOB HARTMAN

Nicky Hayden (69) demon­strates the same fo­cus as a pre­teen that ul­ti­mately led to a Mo­togp world ti­tle. Back then, Hayden and older brother Tommy (9) were backed by Hous­ton­based South­west Mo­tor­sports. “When I look at that photo, the first thing I think about is Nicky putting it to Tommy,” ex-racer Danny Walker says. “Nicky set the bar for de­ter­mi­na­tion at a very young age.”
