Congratulations to Nicky Hayden. He is the 2006 MotoGP World Champion.
Not bad for a young man from Owensboro Tennessee.
The first few laps were seriously exciting. I didn't think he'd come back after Pedrosa hit him in the last race. And lets also give props to Tony Eleis for keeping Rossi of the top seat at the podium in the last race, it would have been a lot closer otherwise.
Jeez. I wrote Owensboro Tennessee and Owensboro is in Kentucky.
I wish this forum had an edit feature.
