Raga leads the Spanish team and repeat victory at the TdN

19/09/2011
Great Britain, with Lampkin and Brown, was second and Grattarola and Italy took the third position.
After the excellent performances from Adam Raga on the final leg of the Trial World Championship, the Gas Gas rider gave another example of his fine form leading the Spanish team to achieve a new victory in the Trial des Nations (TdN) this weekend in the Italian city of Tolmezzo..

While this race doesn't set an individual winner, Adam was the one who set the reference to throughout the day and was also the best final score of the entire Spanish team, which was accompanied by Toni Bou, Albert Cabestany and Jeroni Fajardo. The RFME quartet (38 points) won without much difficulty the British team, with Dougie Lampkin -most recovered from the ankle injury that prevented him play much of the World Championship-, and Michael Brown. The two Gas Gas riders and their colleagues Jack Challoner and James Dabill (117 points) outscored the young Italian squad (159 points) leaded by the also Gas Gas rider Matteo Grattarola in the fight for second place. Loris Gubian and the French team couldn't do anything to finish on the podium. Norway was fifth, and Japan was sixth. With this victory in the TdN, Spain's team now has eight consecutive victories and a total of 18 wins since the birth of this competition.

After this last international event of the season, Adam Raga and the rest of the Gas Gas team will prepare with optimism the end of the outdoor Spanish Championship and the start of the indoor national championship (CETI).

Àdam Raga

"Although sometimes it may seem that these races are easy, the truth is that they never are. Some editions are less complicated than others, but it's never easy to win. I'm very pleased by both the team and also for my personal performance. I think we worked well and I have felt very comfortable. I think we should be satisfied by the end of the season we are doing but we can not relax. Not still finished the championship in Spain, also the CETI, and very soon we will meet again with the indoor World Championship, so we must continue working growing stronger".
