Àdam Raga

"As usual, the proof of Marseille has been quite complicated, with large areas and techniques that have forced us to drive the limit and be very focused. For this reason a second place is not a bad result. In fact, I'm quite satisfied with how it all works, because I felt very comfortable with the bike and everything. I could go better, but I'm happy. The start of the race went well and I've been pretty close to Bou both in qualifying and in the semifinal, but in the final I made a mistake when we were almost tied and then I chained several flaws in wanting to put pressure. It was a shame, but hey, we're seconds in the championship and now happen to be thinking about Barcelona".
