Raga up to the second step of the podium at the GP of Spain

20/06/2011
The Gas Gas rider staged a remarkable comeback, but was conditioned by the easy sections of Pobladura de las Regueras.
The arrival of the Trial World Championship to Spain, which was the third grand prix of the season and the fourth day of competition, allowed to return to enjoy the best riding of Adam Raga. The Ulldecona's rider took the second step of the podium after sign a good comeback and recorded the best score of the second pass through the sections.

The Gas Gas rider didn't start too well the race as the remarkable ease of sections became a burden hard for recover the two 5 imposed on him in the first lap, and even more so considering that one of them was particularly rigorous. Still, faced the second round Adam convinced of its possibilities and willingness to improve the fourth place he had at that time. An excellent riding not only allowed him to close this lap with only five points if not also take the final second place. Toni Bou got the win with 9 points in front to 19 points who totaled Adam and the 22 scored by Cabestany.

Loris Gubian finished seventh, while Michael Brown was ninth. Dougie Lampkin is still affected by discomfort in his foot and didn't participate in Pobladura de las Regueras. Finally, Carlos Traviesa was second in Junior and Pol Tarrés sixth.

With this new podium Raga locks in second place in the overall standings, ten points below Bou and pending what happens in the GP of Andorra which will be held next weekend.

Àdam Raga

"I'm very happy with this second position, because it's a good result. Obviously I would have preferred to win, but it was a fairly easy trial and recover points was hard, so I have conditioned a lot for the two 5 I have scored in the first round, one very questionable. Still, I made the best second round of all, I could comeback and go from fourth to second. The next weekend the World Championship comes to Andorra, to Sant Julià. It's a Trial that I like, with many types of terrain and I think we can maintain the good level we have shown so far. It will be important to get a good result because the suspension of the GP of Poland lost a race and this isn't positive, because with fewer results there are fewer options to recover from any mistake. I hope that finally we will travel to Japan because some riders will not go without ensuring the safety... and losing two days more would be a serious problem".
