How Mir became Suzuki’s humble MotoGP hero

MotoGP's newly crowned champion has been a rare exception in managing to put together a consistent title challenge. But it's the way Joan Mir has gone about 2020 off-track that has been just as impressive as his displays on it

November has seemingly been a month of feel-good stories. The Americans voted for hope and a better future in the Presidential election; scientists have started to point us in the direction out of this COVID-19 nightmare with the imminent emergence of effective vaccines; AC/DC reunited its 'Back In Black' line-up for a new record; and Joan Mir ended a 20-year wait for Suzuki when he was crowned MotoGP world champion last Sunday in the Valencia Grand Prix.

That the 2020 season has been wrapped up a round early is perhaps the most surprising thing to have happened in this wild campaign. But when you look at the scorecard, that Mir has taken the title with a round in hand isn't that much of a shock.
