ADAM RAGA

"I'm happy with how the race went because I've been about to complete the Saunier Duval zone to be closer to Toni Bou. I think I've done well in qualifying, the semi-finals and the final. I'm content with the second position, it is good for the championship and I hope to win a race before the end of this X-Trial World Championship.
Physically and technically I feel good, and the bike is also fantastic, it has been perfect. I have to thank my mechanics, they and Gas Gas are working very well, leaving a very competitive bike. We hope to continue in this line to be closer to Toni in the next races. "
