A puncture leaves Raga in third place at the World X-Trial

17/03/2014
The fourth round of the World X-Trial Championship in Milan has left a bittersweet taste for Gas Gas riders. With Raga finishing third after suffering a puncture, while Casales doesn't make it to the semifinals.
The World X-Trial Championships held its fourth event in Milan (Italy), where Adam Raga, who has qualified well and in the semifinal, has finished in third place because of a puncture in one of the sections.

The Gas Gas factory team rider had a good qualifying and semifinal round, showing the usual level of the rider from Ulldecona (Tarragona), finishing second to get to the final round, where the entrance to a zone punctured the rear tyre of his Gas Gas TXT Pro 300 Factory Replica. One of the sharp edges of the obstacle caused the puncture and he could not continue to the end of the section, which resulted in a five points penalty. In the absence of zones where he could recover these points lost, finally, he finished in third position.

Good trial for Casales

Jorge Casales has disputed this fourth qualifying round of the World X-Trial and just missed entry into the semifinals. The Galician rider from the Gas Gas School of Champions program is progressing in each race and in this demanding championship, appears to have a great future. In this round, even without a progression to the semi-finals, he has obtained results similar to the more experienced riders.

One of the guest riders to this round was local talent Matteo Grattarola, who with his Gas Gas TXT Pro Racing has qualified for the semi-final, and finished in the sixth position.

ADAM RAGA
"I'm happy with how I rode up to the end, everything has gone well, I have done very good in qualifying and had a good semifinal. But in the end, while on zero, I've suffered a puncture in a zone and I ended up with 5 points more than my opponent, finishing third in the race. This third took away some possibilities for the sub-championship, but there are always future possibilities, and we will not stop fighting until the end."
