Championship GP of Spain in Cordoba in the area
In the first day of the race dominated by the heat,
the Gas Gas rider shown a great performance and
for more than half the race he was virtually tied
with Toni Bou. Indeed, the equality was broken
only a by a small error by Raga when touched and
dropped an arrow in section 5 of the second round
tossing him out of the victory. This 'five' was
decisive, and forced the Gas Gas rider to take
more risks to increase the pressure on his rivals.

Laia Sanz, chosing to retire after suffering a heavy
fall. Fortunately, the Gas Gas rider suffered no
major injury, but chose not to take chances as

“Everything went very well and I
am happy with the race. I think we
did a good trial and we have
always been fighting for the
victory. The pity was that today
I have been penalized for an
arrow marker and for that, I have
a five, because, if not for this
penalty, I would surely have
managed to win. Still, despite the
heat we've been through a lot, I
really enjoyed the bike and zones.
Today has gone well and I have
missed very little to prevent
victory. I hope that tomorrow
everything will be even better and
I will be at the top of the podium”.
