Adam Raga closes with a second place for the weekend in England

20/07/2014
Second place for Adam Raga in the second round of the GP of Great Britain at Penrith, the Gas Gas rider is situated ten points behind the World Pro championship leader. Jorge Casales improves with a sixth place finish and maintains his seventh place position in the standings. While young Arnau Farré is seventh in his second appearance in the World Cup.
Adam Raga finished in the second position the second of the two races that he has had at the British Grand Prix held this past weekend at Penrith. Sunday, a day which has unlike yesterday, the rain did not make an appearance and the competition was played on dryer land with greater grip. The Gas Gas rider finished second in a day where the easier sections became more complicated, making a big difference. Raga is now, with just two GP races remaining, - France and Spain - and with three scoring events, 10 points off the lead. In second position.

Confidence is growing for Jorge Casales after sixth in Penrith. The Galician rider, who finished ninth on Saturday, improved three positions on the second day. After analyzing Saturday, Casals has amended his errors, carding a good second and an excellent third round which enabled the Gas Gas rider to eventually finish in sixth. He maintains seventh place overall in the global World Pro championship.

And a good performance of the young Arnau Farré in this second round of the World Cup for the young rider from ilerdense who is only 16, this was his second participation in the world cup and, after finishing sixteenth on Saturday, his performance Sunday was remarkable, eventually finishing sixth.

Next weekend the World Championship lands at the French resort of La Mongie hosting on Sunday July 27th, the French GP, a one-day competition, the penultimate round before the GP of Spain to be held at Arnedo on the 6th and 7th of September.

Adam Raga:This second day in Britain has been better than yesterday, but I made a mistake in the first section on the every lap. In the first lap my result was not what we expected, but then we have improved a lot and in the end, we have made a good last lap which allowed us to finish second. A positive outcome. The next test is in France, terrain we know better, I hope to be one step ahead. Today it has not rained and the sections have been at a lower level, passing more easily and has been a less selective than yesterday's test, except in one of the sections where we scored all fives. That explains so similar scores among us. Now there are three races, there are still 60 points at stake, but the difference of ten points regarding leadership leaves us no margin for error. We can not relax. We have to keep fighting.

Jorge Casales:I've not started the first round too well because in the first section I had a five, but the bad we could regain in the second and third laps, as in the latter we have done very well, with the points near the front. It is a positive development, because we know that we can be with the top riders. The truth is that there were a pair of races in which the results did not satisfy me because I think I have more level than I have shown in these last two races, so today I decided to take things more calmly and concentrate, go section by section, step by step. And that was reflected in the score of the final two laps. I want to thank the team for all the work they have done over the weekend.

Arnau Farré:Today I all went much better than yesterday, I felt very good on the bike. And me too. The first and second rounds were good to me, until a log is broken in this latest lap and a fall and I made a five. In the last lap, going on zero until the seventh section and I have finally finished with five points, which is fine. The truth is that today I found it much more comfortable and the fact the sections have dried, has been better for us all. I'm happy with this seventh place, because this is the second race of the world championship in which I participated.
