All the NEWS proudly brought to you by HJC HELMETS Grab a Limited Edition Brad Binder Red Bull can and win a trip to the 2020 Jerez MotoGP round. South African motorcycleracing sensation Brad Binder is set to step up to the MotoGP in 2020. The 2016 Moto3 World Champion will steer the KTM RC16 next year after three seasons, 6 victories and 11 podiums (to-date) in the Moto2 category. To celebrate the fact that Binder will become the first South African to race MotoGP in the four-stroke era and the first to compete in the premiere class since 2000, Red Bull have launched a limited edition can, featuring Binder. “It’s pretty crazy to have your face on a Red Bull can!” he commented. “I don’t think I’ll get used to it!” “To know that there are so many people back home supporting me is crazy. I miss everything about South Africa when I’m away – the food, the people. I’m really looking forward to my move to MotoGP next year and hope to make everyone proud,” Binder added. The 24-year-old made his Grand Prix debut in 2011 (as a Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup race winner) and grabbed his first silverware in 2014. He claimed the 2016 world title in just his second term with Red Bull KTM Ajo (becoming South Africa’s first world champion in thirty-six years and just the third from his country) and graduated immediately to Moto2 with the same team where he has raced ever since. His third season in Moto2 started slow but he’s steadily gained momentum and won his second race of the season at Aragon, Spain in mid- September. That result made it two wins and three podiums in the last seven races. C.I.T. Pretoria revamps store & celebrates birthday with crazy specials!
