Adam Raga is left at the gates of the podium in Geneva

14/02/2011
The Gas Gas rider remains third in the X-Trial's championship after a complicated swiss event.

The fourth round of the World Championship X-Trial, which was held this weekend in Geneva (Switzerland), was anything favorable for the Gas Gas rider Adam Raga, who finished just off the podium after being tied with third place and having scored only three points more than the second.

From the opening bars of the race it was found that the complicated design of the zones was especially beneficial to the championship leader, Toni Bou, who was the rider than accumulated less penalties from the qualifying round.

After overcoming some problems in the areas of the first round, the Adam's fight with Albert Cabestany and Jeroni Fajardo for the second place on the podium looked like it might be favorable, but several failures in the end zones led to the Gas Gas rider to give three points on Cabestany and tie on points with Fajardo. In this situation, the particular X-Trial regulation doesn't provide special playoff sections and the results are decided based on what happened in the previous phases. Thus, a identical computation of penalties between Adam and Fajardo in both the final and in the semifinal, handed the podium to second thanks to his best score in qualifying.

Despite the Adam's disappointment after to have fallen out of the places of honor in Switzerland, the rider still third in the world championship and the objective for the last two races, to be played in Madrid and Milan, is to regain the second position at the overall clasification.
