MTV Takes fans Along For A Ride With "The Kentucky Kid" On Friday, November 16 at 10pm ET/PT

Professional Motorcycle Racer, Nicky Hayden Gives Viewers An Inside Look Into The World Of Professional Motorcycle Racing With A Two Hour Movie Special

At speeds of over 200 miles per hour, pro motorcycle racer, Nicky Hayden wins his first ever MotoGP World Championship and defends his title as MTV puts viewers in the fast lane with a two-hour movie special, "The Kentucky Kid" premiering on Friday, November 16 at 10pm ET/PT.

"The Kentucky Kid" chronicles the life of pro motorcycle racer Nicky Hayden starting with the final two races of the 2006 season, where he is well on his way to becoming the new MotoGP World Champion. The chance of fulfilling his life long dream seemingly slips away when Nicky is dramatically crashed out of the race by another rider. With the odds against him, and a fractured collar bone, Nicky proves that dedication and perseverance can help overcome any obstacle as he claims The MotoGP World Title in remarkable fashion. But as the new racing season starts, Nicky finds that the only thing harder than winning the Championship is defending it.

Racing since the age of 3, the series follows the 25-year old from Owensboro, Kentucky as he defends his championship on the back of a motorcycle at mind bending and heart pounding speeds, with his knee scraping the ground at every turn. Hayden's natural ability and good looks coupled with the sports' sexy, fast paced atmosphere has helped propel him as a sports icon, but in a league where the majority of the audience is European, the American Hayden constantly has to prove himself and his status as World Champion. Nicky's relationship with his close knit family of racers and the contrast between his rural life in Kentucky and his European cosmopolitan sport all form the backdrop to Hayden's 2007 season and his quest to win back to back World Championships.

"The Kentucky Kid" in its entirety will be available cross carrier on MTV mobile's linear channel and VOD service.

R. Greg Johnston, Sam Sokolow and Rob Lobl are Executive Producers of "The Kentucky Kid." Kelly Welsh is Co- Executive Producer. Nicky Hayden is producer. Lois Curren and Lauren Dolgen are executives in charge for MTV.
