Pete Benson, Chief Mechanic for 2006 World Champion Nicky Hayden, spoke to motogp.com after seeing his rider take his magnificent title triumph in Valencia, paying tribute to the American's determination and character.

"It's been a great day for Nicky, we didn't change anything with the settings after the warm-up as we'd been happy since yesterday's practice sessions. I think Nicky will continue to do well when we make the switch to the 800cc bikes, great riders can adapt to anything," said the key figure in Hayden's championship-winning season.
