The Czech Grand Prix was a landmark day for KTM, after rookie Brad Binder took the RC16 to both the marque's and the South African's debut MotoGP victory. It was an incredible achievement, testament to KTM's tireless development and ardent belief in itself and Binder.
But KTM and Binder weren't, arguably, the real winners of last weekend's Brno race.
The ones with the biggest smiles on their faces after last weekend was surely MotoGP's promoters Dorna Sports and its CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta. KTM's win made it the fifth manufacturer of the current six to win a premier class race since 2015. When you consider that between 2011 and 2015, only Honda and Yamaha riders won grands prix, the Czech GP result comes further into focus.
