Austrian Motorcycle Grand Prix: The Countdown has started!

Very soon, the celebrities of MotoGP will take over the Red Bull Ring. Tens of thousands of fans will flock to the Mur Vally to cheer on their idols. KTM rider Bradley Smith can thereby count on the support of the orange Austrian marque’s fanbase and knows what it takes to be successful at their home race.

In the Mur Valley, the superstars of motorcycle racing’s top tier can bank on loads of fan power. With more than twenty years in the world championship and nine titles, seven of those in the premier class MotoGP, all-time fan-favourite Valentino Rossi is a living legend.
