Brad Binder is a South African professional motorcycle racer who won the Moto3 World Championship title in 2016, in his 5th year at that tier. The performance earned him a promotion to the Moto2 tier, where he turned in consistently strong performances for the Red Bull KTM Ajo team, finishing 8th, 3rd, and 2nd over the next 3 years. Brad’s strong showing at the Moto2 World Championship convinced his team to promote him to the premier MotoGP tier with the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team for the 2020 season.
