Carey Hart and Pink may have split, but that doesn't mean they're not still close.
"We talk all the time and try to stay connected as much as possible," Hart told PEOPLE at the opening of his new Las Vegas club, Wasted Space, in the Hard Rock Hotel. "It's a tough situation to be in but I love her to death."
And though they are not longer a couple, Hart confesses he still misses his ex. "I miss everything about her," he says. And in the wake of their split, "I became a workaholic," says the motocross star. "I work 19 hours a day."
Carey, who married Pink in 2006 and split in February
, isn't ready to move on.
Says Hart: "I'm not in any rush to get back into a relationship."
