Roadracing World asks, "Is Beaubier America’s Next Potential World Championship Racer?"

Nicky Hayden, the 2006 MotoGP World Champion and current rider for the DRIVE M7 Aspar Honda team, was recently asked in an interview posted on the official websites of MotoGP and MotoAmerica who he considered to be a likely candidate to follow in his footsteps and potentially achieve World Championship success.

“Cameron Beaubier really showed a lot last year,” said Hayden, referring to Beaubier’s rookie AMA Pro Superbike season in 2014, when he won three races and finished on the podium four other times and placed third in the final standings.

After standing out with race wins in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup in 2007 and being invited to train at the Red Bull Academy in Spain in 2008, Beaubier was signed to the factory Red Bull KTM 125cc World Championship team for the 2009 season. The only problems were that Beaubier was riding an updated 2007 KTM against Aprilia’s latest and greatest racebikes and his teammate was future World Champion Marc Marquez.
