Moto2’s second free practice this afternoon at Jerez de la Frontera was neither wet nor dry, with many riders undecided which tire to use, so many of them sat out most of the session until the final minutes. In fact Marc VDS Racing Team’s Mika Kallio topped the timesheets in a last lap lunge in 1:55.675, followed by this morning’s leader Johan Zarco, who also posted his best lap in the finale. Both riders toppled Arguiñano Racing Team’s Ricky Cardus (who lost two rides during the pre-season) who had led the entire practice until the final minutes.

Anthony West was fourth with a very prudent Marc Marquez right on his tail in fifth adrift by just 0.060s. Thomas Luthi took the sixth spot and was seven tenths from leader Kallio and was followed by Axel Pons and Alex De Angelis who jumped to eighth position also in his final run. Scott Redding and Randy Krummenacher closed out the top ten, in what was an uneventful and almost useless session.
