“Honestly, I’m at a loss for words,” Binder, 24, said. “This is a day I dreamed about since I was a little boy, and today it came true. It’s amazing to win my first grand prix. I really wish my parents were here because they’re the ones who backed me from the beginning. Thank you to everyone who supports me to get here. It’s a dream come true.

“I can’t thank my team enough. They put an absolutely insane motobike underneath me this weekend. I had no idea I could win but had a feeling we could be good. Hats off to my guys. They did the most unbelievable job. I hope this is the start to many more.”
