SA's Brad Binder ended his Moto2 career on a high in Valencia on Sunday as he readies for the huge step up to MotoGP next year. The fans at home were ecstatic on Twitter!

Binder battled Tom Luthi all the way to the finish line on his Red Bull KTM Ajo bike to clinch the Moto2 Valencia Grand Prix, making it his third win in a row at the end of the season.

Due to the delayed Moto3 race, the Moto2 event was shortened to only 16 laps at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit.



Binder finishes second in the championship, just three points shy of the Moto2 champion Alex Marquez.
