BRAD Bin­der cre­ated a se­ries of firsts as he won the Czech Mo­toGP on Sun­day to make come true “a day I dreamed about since I was a lit­tle boy”.

It was the 24-year-old’s first Mo­toGP win in only his third race in the elite divi­sion as well as a first vic­tory at this level by a South African.

“My team put an ab­so­lutely in­sane mo­tor­bike un­der­neath me this week­end,” said Bin­der.

“I had no idea we were ca­pa­ble of win­ning but I had a feel­ing it could be good.”

French­man Fabio Quar­tararo fin­ished seventh but still leads the riders’ stand­ings.
