Yesterday at Brno Brad Binder entered and won his third MotoGP race - something he has dreamed of as a child and says the reality is a little scary.

The series rookie gave KTM its first win at Brno and continues a partnership with the Austrian manufacturer which also sae him crowned Moto3 king and Moto2 runner-up last year before being drafted in to the works team for 2020.

“Today, it was the most incredible day in my life so far. It’s that day I’ve dreamed of since I was a child,” said Binder, speaking at the track.

“For it to come true in my third grand prix is scary. I honestly, I can’t believe it.

“It’s been from the day of starting in the Red Bull Rookies Cup, it’s just been a consistent grind.

“And you know, I came through all of the class through with Red Bull KTM. We’re on top and we finally won in MotoGP.”

The win was far from a cruise as his crew had to turn the South African’s RC16 upside down in practice

“I could barely touch a throttle and I felt like I was going to get flicked up in the air.

“So, Friday night the guys did their home work and before I left the track I remember speaking to my crew chief and the boss Mark and said ‘don’t stress out, tomorrow they will sort it out’.

“And they did. Yeah, from FP3 already my bike was so much more stable and I just felt really, really good.

“It also comes a lot down to just the guys put together an amazing package. This new bike is insane.”
