The return of to Europe of the Trial World Championship has set itself perfectly to the styles of Adam Raga, marking the return to work after the Australia and Japan rounds, this being the always complicated home event, the Championship GP of Spain in Cordoba in the area of Peñarroya-Pueblonuevo.

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. Adam finally finished with 25 points against the score of 23 by Albert Cabestany and 20 of Bou. Loris Gubian and Michael Brown dualed for ninth and tenth place, while Matteo Grattarola, Alexz Wigg and Pere Borrellas followed until thirteenth place respectively.

The bad news in this category was 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 forthcoming within a week is Andorra, the first World Round for females.

Adam Raga

“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”.
