A bit more rain was on the menu for the intermediate class, causing the same familiar names to feature heavily in the second practice session. After leading FP1, Alex Marquez picked it up at the top but he was quickly pushed back by Tom Luthi, the Swiss rider putting half a second between the two of them. The Spaniard cut the gap to less than two tenths before Luthi blasted his own best time to outpace Marquez by over seven tenths of a second. The rollercoaster continued with the Marc VDS rider once again getting within two tenths.
