MotoGP » Nicky Hayden made a MotoGP Legend

"It is very surprising that Angel Nieto is a "MotoGP legend", IIRC, he only raced in the smallest categories. He was a midget. Very, very talented and all, but never raced a 500. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong on that point". "He specialized in racing small displacement bikes such as in the 50 cc, 80 cc and 125 cc classes but many fellow racers, including former world champion Barry Sheene consider him among the greatest motorcycle racers of all time.[1] Though he was never successful at the world level racing in the larger displacements, he won Spanish National Championships in the 50 cc, 125 cc, 250 cc, 500 cc and 750 cc classes.[1] He retired in 1986 at the age of 39 with a total of 90 Grand Prix victories and 13 World Championships."
