BT Sport remembers Hayden's title in Greatest Years finale

In what was BT Sport's final trip down memory lane, the team fondly remembered the late, great Nicky Hayden's incredible MotoGP™ title win

Sunday saw BT Sport take their final trip down memory lane in the finale of their Greatest Years series, as the team fondly remembered the late, great Nicky Hayden's incredible 2006 MotoGP™ World Championship triumph. In one of the most rollercoaster seasons in premier class history, the American clinched his one and only World title at the final round in Valencia after Valentino Rossi crashed out early on.

Gavin Emmett, Neil Hodgson and Suzi Perry analysed the key incidents from the year, including Colin Edwards' crash on the final lap at Assen, where he was moments away from a debut Grand Prix victory, and Dani Pedrosa's collision with Hayden at the penultimate round in Estoril, where it looked like the Spaniard had robbed his teammate of his first World Championship.

The trio were also joined by Hayden's crew chief from 2006, now KTM Test Team crew chief, Pete Benson as the Kiwi recounted the season from his perspective. British MotoGP™ fans can rewatch the final show on catch up now as BT Sport takes a short break ahead of the expected return of MotoGP™ at the Circuito de Jerez - Angel Nieto in just over a months' time.
