After a CRAZY first race last week, the gladiators are getting for another fight. this one is called the "BMW M Grand Prix of Styria", but who cares?

On the track with the highest average speed of the series we have seen how things can go right one minute and wrong immediately thereafter.

KTM are fastest on FP2. Suzukis also doing well, as can be expected after watching last week's race.

Pol on Pole.
The slightest thing can put him into red mist land.
He needs to get out front and stay away from everyone.

Getting hard to pick.
I'll say no Yamaha will get on the podium, speed and tyres their problem.
KTM, Suzuki and Ducati fighting over the podium.

Dark Horse is Nakagami, can he keep the Honda going over race distance?
Looks like a Thrilla.

With bikes getting closer in performance and MM93 out for a few more months, there is an opportunity for others to shine.

Looking at the grid for tomorrow, there are so many "not-so-known" names on the top spots. This is a historic year for MotoGP racing.

As for tomorrow, I am not placing any bets. Too wild to call.

To close for me to even guess. Anything can happen.

Every weekend I think that this season can't get any crazier and it does. Big time.

Starting with the first race, with JZ starting from pit and where the podium looked like all new names. Then a rider, MV12, jumping off his bike at the end of the straight, for a red flag. Didn't see anything like this for at least 20 years.

Second race start with new guys leading from get-go and finishing with TWO KTMs on the podium, with the top step going to a satellite team. Craziness.

More historical moments with a first win for Olivera, a fist Portuguese winner in the top category, ever, and a first win for Tech 3 (and not on a Yamaha).
