The TrialGP World Championship got off to a great start in Camprodón for the Gas Gas Trial Team. Jaime Busto and Jeroni Fajardo keep on adding yet more great results for a GasGas Trial Factory Team that continues to fulfill the objectives set and is making great strides in the fight for victory. The duo formed by Busto and Fajardo got podium finishes at the demanding start of the World Championship, demonstrating the GasGas team's great form right now.
After achieving first place in qualification, Busto made his debut in the outdoors series in the best possible way, riding his GasGas TXT to second overall position. His partner, Jeroni Fajardo, supported him with an excellent performance allowing him to finish in third place.
In Trial2, young British rider from the GasGas School of Champions, Jack Peace, climbed onto the second step of the podium. He was joined by the French rider from the GasGas Trial Factory Team, Loris Gubian, in third place. Loris has starred in a magnificent return to the TrialGP World Championship.
Thanks to the results obtained in TrialGP and Trial2, GasGas is leading the Manufacturers Championship after the opening event. The next round of the World Championship is the up coming Japanese Grand Prix, at Motegi, from 1st to 3rd June.
Marc Colomer, Gas Gas Team Manager said after the event "It was a great start to the TrialGP World Championship: the three GasGas Trial Factory Team riders took the podium. It seems that, since the first event, we are even more competitive in the Outdoor World Championship, than in the Indoor. Having the two riders on the TrialGP podium is a great way to start the season. It is clear that our goal is still victory, but we must go step by step to continue improving. As far as the brand goes we are very happy because everything went very well over the weekend and I want to congratulate the entire GasGas team.
The second GP of the season is in Japan and the trip always complicates things a bit. Although the material is the same, obviously the logistics is a little different from the races that are disputed in Europe. But that factor will be the same for all teams. We will continue working hard this week before traveling to Motegi, to continue on this good track."
|I am very happy with what we did over the whole weekend. Yesterday's qualifying round was very good, I finished first and that gave me a small advantage today. With the rain that fell yesterday afternoon, this morning the terrain was very slippery, but I was able to complete a good first lap and the feeling of the bike has been incredible. In the middle of the second pass it started to rain and that complicated everything. But we were able to hold the pace and finish second. I want to thank the whole team for their work with the bike, which has been great all weekend."|
|I am very happy with my third place. It was a complicated weekend, which started with a ninth place in yesterday's qualifying round. Today I started the day quite well, but in the middle of the first lap I started feeling a little uncomfortable. It was really tricky, but I finished fourth in the first round. With the rain falling, the second round was much harder, much more difficult, but we fought, we endured and all the effort was rewarded with this third position.|
|It's been a good weekend for me. Today, the beginning was quite stressful, because it was my first Trial2 race in quite some time. Finishing third, a few points from the second position, in the first race is a very good result. We will have to continue like this and work for the following races, in Andorra and Portugal, to catch up with the riders ahead."|
