Raga on the podium again after fighting to win in Sigüenza

14/05/2012
The battle continued until the last zone, when an all or nothing attempt left the Gas Gas rider on the third box. An excellent race for Borrellas and Casales.
The fourth round of the Spanish Trial Championship (CET) held this Sunday in the town Alcarria of Sigüenza, Adam Raga again enjoyed a podium position after a day in which equality was the overall dominant factor among the top riders.

After the rain that fell on Saturday, the more complicated areas of the race on Sunday made both Adam and his two top rivals, Bou and Cabestany have similar score accumulations along the zones. In fact, until the 9th Section, Raga was only one point behind Bou who was only one point behind ‘Cabes’ who was the leader. However, the final zones would determine the end of the race, in which Adam added a fiasco 'in extremis' which ended all of his chances for victory. The Gas Gas rider took the 'five' being less than two meters from the end of the section, which led him to end with a total of 36 points, two more than 'Cabestany -second- and six more than Bou, the final winner.

Like Adam, the other two 'youth' Gas Gas team members in TR-1, Pere Borrellas and Jorge Casales, also showed an excellent result. Borrellas ended with a major sixth place absolute with 92 points, one more than Casales, who scored the seventh absolute position. the Spanish Trial Championship will rest now until July 15th, when the next round is held in Pobladura de las Regueras (Leon).

Adam Raga

“I am satisfied, although I would have liked to win and this was a race that I could have, so that I would be much more happy. Still, I think we did a good job and it was a shame that we had a five in the last zone. The race was not easy, and indeed required adjustment for time in fact one of my points has been for time, but we fought and we demonstrated that we are competitive. It's a shame not have had a little more of a reward, but I'm sure that we can improve further in the next races”.
