A bad night in Paris leaves Raga without the second position in the X-Trial season

02/04/2012
The Gas Gas rider fell-off in the final and finished the World Championship in third place.
The final round of the X-Trial World Championship did not bring any luck to Adam Raga or the Gas Gas team. All hopes of fighting for an indoor win this season began to fade away in the complicated qualifying round as Raga suffered much more than expected, and finally could only finish fourth.

After this bad start, the situation became dramatically more complicated in the semi-finals when the Gas Gas rider had three consecutive “fives” tying him with Albert Cabestany and Alexandre Ferrer. Leaving Raga with no option in the final because of his score being worse than ‘Cabes’ in the qualifying round. In addition to the setback of not being able to fight for the podium, Adam also saw the possibility of finishing second in the final season-end score tally escape from his grasp. Leaving this position mathematically held by Cabestany leaving Raga to settle for third place overall.

Worse were things for Loris Gubian who expected to give a good performance to the audience but suffered a spectacular fall during the qualifying round. Despite the considerable heights of the zones -sometimes dangerous in places- and the impact of the crash, Loris suffered no injuries, but lost all options of entering the semi-final.

Next Friday, Nice will host the X-Trial de Nations, in which Raga will form part of the Spanish squadron and Gubian is waiting and will defend the French’s colors.
