Default Prayers needed for Nicky Hayden's condition

I didn't see anything here about it, so here goes.

Nicky was struck by a car while cycling and is in critical condition. He can use prayers if you feel inclined to do so.

Very sad news and the prognosis isn't good either.
Wasn't sure at first if they meant motorcycling or bicycling when they mentioned cycling. He was fitness training on his bicycle when the accident occurred.
Hopes and prayers go out to him and his family.

Prayers have been sent.

It's such wretched irony when someone who lives with danger daily, for work or play, gets taken down by something most would consider relatively safe.

It doesn't matter how astronomical the odds are.

I've personally been struck by lightning once already. Fortunately I was in my truck and not on my Sporty.

Unhappy

I am saddened to say there is news Nicky has passed away from his injuries. He had such a laid back demeanor.

No wonder he was such a fan favorite.

Very sad. Prayers go out to him and his family.
This is why I mountain bike in the woods no cagers to look out for.

That is sad. I wonder, do bicyclists get the same grim stories that motorcyclists are subjected to by non-riders? We take chances by anything we do, but sometimes the great claw of the sea crab gets lucky that day. Rest in peace, Nicky.
