Jaime Busto and Jeroni Fajardo finish in sixth and eighth places at the X-Trial in Toulouse

01/20/2018

Torrot's GasGas Trial Factory Team riders occupy fifth and seventh positions of the general classification of the X-Trial World Championship. GasGas, with three bikes, was the brand with the highest representation in Toulouse.

Just six days after their last encounter, the stars of the X-Trial returned to their appointment in France, this time in the Zénith pavilion in Toulouse, to pit their forces in the third event of the World Indoor Championship. Jaime Busto managed to get his own back for the bad experience that left him in ninth place in Montpellier. The GasGas rider passed the first round with ease, in fifth place, which was a boost for the young Basque rider, who was unable to enter the final and finished sixth.

Jeroni Fajardo had less luck this time, and after the initial draw, the weight of opening the section fell to him. The rider from Girona finished eighth without being able to qualify for the second round of the Toulouse X-Trial, an event in which GasGas was the brand with the greatest presence, with three of their bikes, with the participation of the British rider Jack Price from GasGas UK.

The X-Trial World Championship changes venue next week, although not the country, since the Zénith in Strasbourg, again in France, is to host the fourth event of the Championship next Friday the 26th of January.

JAIME BUSTO:
"After not being able to qualify in Montpellier [the previous event] here in Toulouse I was still a little nervous. In the first round, although I made some small mistakes, the score was enough to move on to the next one. The truth is that I lacked a little more confidence. I'm not happy with this result, but everything has gone much better than the last day. I think I can be at a higher level and fight again for the podium as in Vendée, I just need to recover a little confidence. Now we are going to train hard to do better next Friday, in Strasbourg."

JERONI FAJARDO:
"The truth is that I started the test a little nervous, unhappy having to open the sections. I did not take the situation well and I did not get the trial riding that I wanted. Where I dropped more points was in the easiest areas and after analyzing the race, I know that with very little more I could have made it into the next round. But I started very badly, scoring a five in the first section after losing balance and going out. Then it took me a lot to get my focus back, I made some more mistakes and it didn't go as well as I had hoped. Next week I hope it will go better in the next event, which will also be in France."
