Miller seals maiden MotoGP victory at rain-drenched Dutch TT

Jack Miller stunned the big guns to win his first ever MotoGp race on Sunday.

The Australian won a dramatic and rain-drenched Dutch TT at Assen – a race that was red flagged and restarted due to severe weather conditions.

Miller who has only one MotoGP top-10 finish to his name in the year and a half since his debut, took full advantage of a crash riddled race to celebrate a stunning win.

Three riders crashed out whilst leading, including Dani Pedrosa and nine-time world champion Valentino Rossi.

But 21-year-old Miller stayed on two wheels throughout to secure a first win for his Marc VDS Honda team.

He also became the first rider to win a MotoGP race other than Jorge Lorenzo, Marc Marquez, Rossi and Pedrosa, since fellow countryman Casey Stoner in 2012.

Marquez extended his championship lead to 24 points over Lorenzo with second place while Britain’s Scott Redding took third to equal his previous best career finish in the elite class.
