HOME WIN AND FAREWELL
MotoGP fans also got to enjoy two races at the Red Bull Ring. At the second race, the Motorcycle Grand Prix of Austria, Brad Binder took the first home victory for the KTM factory team.

The fans had experienced a historic moment a week earlier as MotoGP superstar Valentino Rossi announced his retirement at the start of the Styrian GP.
