American Nicky Hayden snatched the MotoGP world crown from the grasp of five-time champion Valentino Rossi following a dramatic final race in Valencia on Sunday. Rossi led the standings by eight points before the race, but saw his hopes end after sliding out on lap five. He got back on his Yamaha and finished 13th, but Hayden came home in third place to take the title for Honda. Australia's World Superbike champion Troy Bayliss won the race for Ducati. (AP)
