In a shock Brno race, rookie Brad Binder made history by taking the win in his third premier class appearance.
In doing so, he became the first rookie to win since Marc Marquez in 2013, and the first South African winner. As well as this, he brought KTM to their first MotoGP victory. Here’s how the fans reacted…
