Nicky Hayden Tributes - Vital MX Pit Bits: Glen Helen - Motocross Pictures - Vital MX

There were a ton of tributes to the universally-loved Nicky Hayden, who recently passed away after a collision with a car while training on a road bike in Italy.

Back in the supermoto days, when TLD was a Honda-backed team, Nicky Hayden raced for them at X Games. To honor Nicky, Troy was able to place #69 plates on all of his rider's bikes for the parade lap and the entire first moto.

The TLD crew also had some #69 logos adorning their jerseys.

The Fox crew had some LE Flex Air gear to debut but they also turned their attention to Nicky Hayden as they had their guys running "Kentucky Kid" and "#69" butt patches over the weekend.

The HRC team added a large new logo to their rigs...sadly though, it's not a new sponsor, but a tribute to the fallen Nicky Hayden. Godspeed Kentucky Kid.

Lots of other teams and riders were rocking Nicky's logo on their bikes, bodies, or helmets, regardless of brand. He was universally loved and admired.
