The Nick Harris Blog: Stick or Twist for Mir

History points to Joan Mir (Team Suzuki Ecstar) twisting in this amazing season of MotoGP™ poker. Never in the 72-year-old history of World Championship racing has a rider won the premier class without winning a Grand Prix the year of his success. Mir won 10 Grand Prix in 2017 to clinch the World title with two rounds remaining. The year after his World Championship victory he won in Jerez and Estoril to finish third in the Championship. Once again it was second place in the final race of the season that clinched the title. In 1986 he won the 80cc race at the West German GP and a year later was a Grand Prix winner in Misano.
