Well done Brad Binder! Nice Ride!! History Made!

Don't have tv, tell more please.

Ok start, 5th I think into first corner. Then up to 3rd for about 12 laps with Pol Espargo behind him. Zarco takes out Pol, he gets a Long Lap penalty. Brad up to second and chasing Morbidelli down. Clearly smoother and more determined. To be fair, the Petronas Yam’s seem to have tyre issues. 6 laps to go takes the lead cleares off into the distance. Wins by 2.2 seconds AND they get the SA flag right way up on victory lap!
1978. It's 6am, mid winter...two up on a XL 185S ... off to my first casino ever with all of R40 and we've got a full tank of fuel, so enough to get there we reckon.... that's determination...

I'm so stoked with 33, if he keeps it together tomorrow, he can fight for his 1st podium

That was soooo tense and thank goodness for no reason. What a great result from a great young guy. Just a pity my lockdown stash is so depleted; maybe just as well; .

Zarco takes out Pol,
That really was not deliberate, it looked as if Pol closed the gap and then they touched. I feel sad for Pol and KTM though.
