Spaniard Joan Mir today won Suzuki’s first MotoGP world championship in two decades with his seventh place finish in the Valencia Grand Prix!

Mir took the chequered flag after starting 14th at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit, which was enough to secure him the 2020 title.

Mir is the first Suzuki rider since 2000 to win the premier class crown and joins Barry Sheene, Marco Luchinelli, Franco Uncini, Kevin Schwantz and Kenny Roberts Jr as MotoGP’s only Suzuki world champions.

Mir finished seventh today to clinch the MotoGP crown for 2020.
