MotoGP: Hayden: Now I want to win again soon.

THURSDAY 21ST JULY 2005

Having broken his two and half year MotoGP win drought with an emotional first victory last time out at Laguna Seca, Repsol Honda's Nicky Hayden arrives at Donington Park - venue for this weekend's British Grand Prix - on a wave of confidence.

"As I said at the end of the Laguna weekend, the whole three days went to plan and it was like a dream come true. Race day was just amazing but we have to all move on," said Hayden.

"I said that we Hayden's work well on momentum. It took me and while to win races back home in AMA but when I did they seemed to come - same thing with my brother Tommy. I now know I can do it at this level and I won't be happy till we can do it again," he added.

But, with Laguna Seca his home event, some believe Hayden's US GP domination was simply a 'flash in the pan' and that he'll struggle to replicate that form on other tracks - a theory Nicky is eager to prove wrong... although perhaps not this weekend.

"I was very aware that we had important home advantage and I had good circuit knowledge - but then so did some other guys!" he insisted. "I go to Donington realistic that a repeat performance of Laguna will be a very long shot but I go there with a new spring in my step knowing that we - that is me, my team, Honda, Michelin and all my sponsors - have the capability to shock and that is what I want to do again - soon."

Practice for the British Grand Prix takes place on Friday.

He doesn't sound too confident about a second win considering he said it wouldn't happen this weekend.

it's a good thing Rossi didn't need to win that day too , considering he couldn't have :corn And when I read that where he says Laguna wouldn't be repeated - he didn't mean the win , he meant the total ass stomping he put on everyone from every practice to qualifying to pole to flag domination.
