Hayden´s first win

In 2005 Nicky Hayden established himself as one of the most interesting and talented riders in the MotoGP World Championship, due in no small part to his triumph at Laguna Seca- his first victory in the premier class.

The season´s historic visit to the United States, after a decade of absence, allowed Hayden to achieve one of his biggest dreams since his 2003 arrival in MotoGp after a brilliant ride round the American circuit.

Hayden set out an ideal foundation for a home victory, above all as a result of placing himself on pole position at the exciting Californian track. With a memorable performance, the Repsol Honda Rider had a fantastic race, and throughout the 32 laps was able to maintain an advantage over compatriot Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi to seal an unforgettable victory.
