The Gas Gas riders are waiting to shine in the United States GP

24/05/2013
One month after the Japan round of the World Championship, the series comes to America and Sequatchie Tennessee for the second round, where the team Gas Gas riders expect satisfactory results.
The latest test for Adam Raga and all members of the Gas Gas School of Champions Team in the World Championship, is the USA Grand Prix at the Trials Training Center in Sequatchie Tennessee. Raga, who introduced the TXT Pro 300 Factory Replica in the World Cup, remembers well his two victories in Sequatchie that helped him to earn the 2006 world title.

Raga, who won last week’s Trial Indoor de Rouen (France), hopes to re-enter the fight to win races and leave behind the controversy over the Non-Stop. The Spaniard is in third place in the provisional standings, only five points behind the leader and three away from second place.

Michael Brown, down with an injury
One of the Gas Gas riders who cannot participate in the Grand Prix of the United States will be the britt Michael Brown, as yet not recovered from the knee injury he suffered in the Scottish Six Days Trial. In fact, Brown has undergone surgery this past Thursday to repair the damaged cartilage in his left knee. The UK rider expects to be 100% for the next round in Andorra.

For his part, the Catalan Pere Borrellas, another official Gas Gas Team rider seeks the opportunity to score in this second round of the World Championship. One of those who has already achieved is the Italian rider Matteo Grattarola, who will enter this test hoping to improve his riding in the top category, looking for a top ten finish.

Junior options
Jorge Casales is the top rider in the Gas Gas School of Champions Junior category. In Japan, the Galician suffered from the new Non-Stop regulations and the distractions of the very strict interpretations of the regulations by the Japanese judges. Casales, who is much more technical than many of his rivals, hopes to recover in Sequatchie the points he lost in Motegi. Meanwhile, Francesc Moret should also go up one step in his first GP of the season

The United States Trial Grand Prix consists of a loop of about ten Kilometers, with a total of twelve zones and three laps.
