Àdam Raga

"This time the opportunity to start first was pretty well for me on Saturday because, even though having to open the sections and taking many risks, I avoided a little the rain that fell mid-race. I think that we made a very full race the first day and I'm very satisfied with my riding. Our difference with Bou in the classification changed to 10 points, so we needed to keep pushing on Sunday. The goal was go to win again and finish the championship with another victory, but couldn't be. Still, I'm happy with the second place, mainly because of how it was achieved and for the level we have shown during the second half of the championship. This will give us great confidence for going to battle for the title next year, both me and whole Gas Gas team, whom I appreciate the work they have done, especially James, Bruno, Sam, Isma and Dougie".
