Hafizh Syahrin’s result were not so great this year and Tech 3 KTM decided to replace him at the end of the season promoting 2016 Moto3 World Champion Brad Binder, who is actually fighting for victories in Moto2. The South African signed a one-year contract with Austrian manufacturer, the same with which he is actually competing in Moto2 World Championship.
Despite a not so well season in which everyone was expecting Binder fighting for the title and before the championship he was even the main candidate for the final victory, Brad obtained the possibility to run in the major class, a great chance for him to show his value.
After having conquered his first Moto2 victory last year at Sachsenring, being successful also in Australia and Aragon, Binder is struggling a lot in 2019, with the South African who finished on the podium in the last 2 grand prixs at Assen and Sachsenring.
These are Binder’s words after the announce: “It is incredible having this opportunity, I want to say thanks to KTM, Red Bull KTM Tech3, to my manager and my family who helped me a lot on getting this result and having the chance to ride in MotoGP. It is a dream becoming true!”
