Brad Binder from South Africa dominated the Czech Grand Prix in Brno which resulted in an unexpected maiden win in MotoGP for him and KTM.
After starting in seventh position, Binder chased down early leader Franco Morbidelli with nine laps remaining and held onto the lead to take the title in what was only his third start in the premier class. Pole-winner Johann Zarco finished in third place while championship leader Fabio Quartararo finished in a disappointing seventh place.
Binder’s win came just two days before his twenty-fifth birthday. He was born in Potchefstroom in 1995, a mere two years before Valentino Rossi won his very first world title in the 125cc class.
His win at Brno also earned Binder the title of the first-ever South African to win a MotoGP race.
The next race is set to take place on Sunday, 16 August 2020 in Austria.
