adam raga japan day 1 gas gas storyAdam Raga climbed to the third step of the podium at the opening round of the 2015 FIM Trial World championship at the Motegi Ring in Japan despite a difficult start to the race for the Gas Gas rider. A disputed five was given in the fourth section of the first lap which turned out to be a setback that made it very difficult for him ro recover.


Despite the opening lap problems, Raga kept his rhythm in the second lap, in which he regained second place in the standings although later, another five on the final and decisive lap in section number six finally meant third place for the Gas Gas rider, who, despite this initial setback, starts the 2015 World Championship with a place on the podium at the Motegi Ring.


For his part, Arnau Farré began the championship with a seventh place in the World Cup category reserved for the younger riders. The rider from the Gas Gas School of Champions, thanked the brand and the support of the RFME (Spanish Federation), who have enabled him to participate in the first round of the World Championship. This is seen as a positive result for the young rider from Lleida, who after making his debut last year in the World Championship in France, and having then competed in half of the rounds, will fight this year for being among the top positions in the World Cup.


Adam Raga: “Today's race was quite complicated, because we started with a five very early. There has been some discussion about the five, after touching an arrow marker. That five has reduced our options from the beginning, but nevertheless we have done a good job and ridden well, although later came another five, where to win the race we should not have done. However, this is the racing World and we have achieved a podium, it's a good way to start the championship. From now on we must keep fighting and improve in order to achieve victory in the races.”
