- Gas Gas Motos Press Service
Adam Raga finished third in the Trial de Sigüenza, a day in which he made too many mistakes but the Ulldecona rider maintains the second position in the provisional National Championship.
Gas Gas rider Adam Raga took the third position on the podium in third round in the championship, held in the town of manchega de Sigüenza and organized by the motorcycle club Alto Henares, who prepared a Trial with a good technical level with long zones held upon a dusty course.
Adam Raga, premiering the new Gas Gas TXT Pro 300 Factory Replica, sought the win form the first zone but this risk lead to an accumulation of points that despite improvements later in the race, the burden was too much to overcome in achieving victory, which was his main goal after witnessing errors made by championship leader Toni Bou. However, Raga continues to maintain the second position in the championship standings.
For his part, the rider from the Gas Gas School of Champions program, Jorge Casales, finished in fifth position and stands in fourth place in the provisional championship. Also, another good performance was seen as Gas Gas rider Pere Borrellas finished the Trial in sixth place, his best national result so far.
The next race for the Team Gas Gas riders is the second round of the World Trial Championship, to be held in Sequatchie Tennessee, in the USA on the 25th and 26th of May.
Adam Raga: "I started a little bad and towards the end I was able to recover a bit. I’m glad for the latter, but not for the errors that determined the outcome. I had to take risks to recover after these errors from the start put me at a disadvantage and this has not gone well. Still today’s event had a good level, but I was not as successful as we had wished, a correct score would have been half of the points made ".
