The 69 Way by Andrew-and-Seven The 69 Way by Andrew-and-Seven
Nicky Hayden on his Repsol Honda 800cc MotoGP bike shot this year during the British round at Donington Park.

Turns out it was to be his last year with Honda, he won the championship with them in 2006 but wasn't able to recreate that form until near the end of this year. Next year he's on the wild Ducati which should suit his lairy style to a 'T'.

Thanks as ever to for the press pass and opportunity to use it.

I don't like "Emo boy"... and he never won the championship, Rossi gave it to him :p ( i felt like crying ).

Very awesome shot btw.

hey well it would be rude not to! Happy New Year Matt, and thanks for the kind words thru this year.

Even if he was on a bucking bronco he would tame it, which is what the Ducati is so looking forward to him on that next season.
Nice tight crop, how much from the original have you cropped?
Andrew-and-Seven Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
not much at all being honest, just tightened up the top left corner really.

Here's the original crop : [link]

Yeah, I'm with *bittersweetgrenadine. You do it (so very) well and you do it (so very) often. Spot on!

As for season 2009, Nicky may suit the Ducati but his teammate is one Mr Casey Stoner. No chance...
Andrew-and-Seven Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
Ha well indeed Mr Stoner may rule again, but I just want to see Hayden riding a bike which needs dominating - the Honda was just too much of a precision tool for Nicky's dirt track style. If he's got enough fire in his belly too well go take it to Stoner!

It's gonna rock. Happy New Year my friend.
