BLINDER FROM BIN­DER PUTS TI­TLE IN SIGHT

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

South African Brad Bin­der has put one hand on the 2016 Moto3 crown af­ter yet another strong week­end. The KTM star took sec­ond place be­hind Joan Mir, the first pole-to-flag win­ner the class has seen in 14 races. Bin­der was able to cap­i­talise on a fall for ti­tle ri­val Jorge Navarro and the sus­pen­sion of Ro­mano Fe­nati to now hold a mas­sive 67-point ti­tle lead.

“I was close to throw­ing ev­ery­thing away be­cause I went wide a cou­ple of times on the fi­nal laps, but I was able to re­gain con­tact with the group quickly. To fin­ish sec­ond here is amaz­ing. Re­gard­less of what oth­ers do, I al­ways try to win. I think I have noth­ing to lose and ev­ery­thing to gain.”
