... Nicky Hayden, 2006 Moto GP champion on a Honda, with a 5-point lead over Valentino Rossi on a Yamaha. One could of course debate Valentino's various misfortunes throughout the season, but Nicky had been leading the championship from the first race (Jerez) on and had only been second to Valentino once (Portugal).

That victoy makes him the 7th American MotoGP (formerly: 500cc) winner, after the two Roberts, Spencer, Lawson, Rainey and Schwantz

Hats off to Nicky. Jamie:cool:

Jamie-Nicky Hayden is truly one of the greats and deserves the win, but I still have never seen anyone who has such natural ability on a motorcycle as Valentino Rossi. It must be something about that breed where all fear is removed when racing starts.
