MotoGP in 2020 was predictably unpredictable; nine different victors in 14 races, five of them tasting premier-class success for the first time. Of that quintet of winners, perhaps Brad Binder's was the least likely – until you look a little closer.
Brad Binder

The South African stunned the paddock by winning on just his third MotoGP start at Brno, taking the first victory for Austrian manufacturer KTM by over five seconds. It was the ride of a seasoned veteran or regular championship contender, not a rookie. "Insane" was all the typically talkative Binder could offer afterwards. "I'm lost for words …".

The 2016 Moto3 champion and 2019 Moto2 runner-up always seemed destined for MotoGP success, and with Pol Espargaro departing to Repsol Honda, the 25-year-old is now KTM's kingpin as it takes on the might of the best Japanese and Italian manufacturers. It's a big job, but 2020 suggests he's up to it.
