28/03/2011
The Gas Gas rider paid expensive risks to achieve victory but could be climb to one point of the second.
After the grotesque end of the opening round of the Trial Spanish Championship, in which all the TR1 riders, the highest category, were declassified for not completing the course in the stipulated time, Adam Raga started this weekend in Ibiza the turnaround to the renewal of his title of champion. The Gas Gas rider was third with a single point of second place after having run excessive risks while fighting for the victory and be forced to climb from fourth position.

The balearic career was marked by a particularly technical and targeted areas, but also by the new order out that the Spanish Federation introduced following the time problems suffered in the premiere race. Thus, TR1 were ordered on this occasion to open the passage between the sections and Adam took advantage to take the lead. However, a mistake in wanting to overcome an obstacle with maximum points gave the first place to Toni Bou and Raga fell to fourth place.

The last sections of the race were especially exciting, with Raga riding at the maximum level and beating Jeroni Fajardo, but also pushing Cabestany, which achieved finishing second with a single point ahead of Adam: 619 points to 618..

Moreover, Pol Tarrés also made a great career, riding at all times very close to the four men on its head. The young value of the Gas Gas School of Champions finished in fifth place with 536 points total.

Àdam Raga

"Looking as the race went, and the level of the zones, has arguably done quite well. The end result is not the best, but the rules of Open Free has these things: if you risk you can lose a lot, but, instead, you can earn very little. In this case I wanted to risk at the beginning, when I was first, and I went wrong. This penalized me much and I ended up spending of the fourth. I spent the rest of the race trying to recover until, at the end, I finished third, one point behind Cabestany. It's a pity no win another step on the podium for only one point, but hey, we'll have better days. About the changes in the starting order, doesn't convince me too. The real way to fix the problem is another. Warm up at seven in the morning and start the race with almost no public doesn't think it's a solution".
