The latest episode of The Race MotoGP podcast looks back at the remarkable 2006 season, when Nicky Hayden beat Valentino Rossi to the world championship.

Toby Moody and Neil Spalding recall their memories from one of MotoGP’s most dramatic seasons, looking back in detail at the moments that became key parts of the 2006 storyline.

They explain why Hayden was on a ‘special’ Honda that year, the problems that caught out the formidable mid-2000s Rossi/Yamaha partnership, how Ducati’s title hopes disappeared in one disastrous moment and how one of the best MotoGP races of all time shaped the points battle heading into the title decider.
