The second Grand Prix of the Trial World Championship consecutive in the Iberian Peninsula, this time in Andorra, served to confirm the good evolution of Adam Raga with its new Gas Gas TXT, as it managed to score another podium and reinforce the second provisional place in the overall standings.

The initial goal of Raga this weekend in Sant Julia de Loria was fighting for his second win of the season, although two premature 5 in the firsts sections conditioned its performance. After the first round Adam scored 19 points and the victory was practically out of reach because Toni Bou overcame all of the sections with only five penalties. So, on the second lap was lived an intense battle between Adam, Takahisa Fujinami and Albert Cabestany for second place. Finally, Bou would take the victory with 15 total points and Fujinami end second with 35, six less than the Gas Gas. This new podium consolidated Adam in second place in the World Championship with 80 points, 15 less than Bou and with 5 in advantage over Cabestany.

The French rider Loris Gubian finished eighth, just ahead of Italian young talent Matteo Grattarola, who signed a great weekend and was third in the European Championship on Saturday. To these results of the Gas Gas riders must be added the Junior category, where Pol Tarres got back on the podium and finished in third place, while Pere Borrellas was fifth. Montecrestese will host the Italian Grand Prix on 10 July.
