Who would have thought Nicky would have been taken out on his pedal bicycle after thousands of miles of racing at highest levels......life is crazy.

We miss you Nicky.

Jaimec, thanks for posting. Very cool that Owensboro KY made this happen. Still hate that we lost the Kentucky Kid, RIP.

Any chance there are multiple pics/angles? Is that one of his actual racebikes? Most importantly, PLEASE tell me the first Lucille Ball sculptor WASN'T involved...

How about a picture of him when he struck that pose, next to the sculpture? Thanks to whomever can dredge any of these RQ's up...

That looks like the bike he won the MotoGP race at Leguna Seca with.

That is a recreation of his victory lap at Laguna Seca, if I recall correctly. I've seen various articles online, all have photos from different angles. I need to get to Owensboro one day.

+1, I thought that was his Laguna Seca win. One of these days I'd love to see a race from somewhere on the Corkscrew.

I was lucky enough to see his first ever MotoGP win in person back in 2005. A friend of mine worked for Phillip Morris and REALLY hooked me up for that one.

More on the statue. And I was mistaken: The pose is NOT from Laguna Seca, it is from Valencia, 2006, after he clinched the World Championship.

If you want to see a race from the Corkscrew, contact Al Lighton formerly of asb ... the SCAB guys have a campsite right in front of it.
