TRRS dominates the Czech GP with two great victories

Adam Raga has added his second victory of the year in the TrialGP in one of the most complicated races of the season. This position allows him to revalidate the second place in the world championship, placing TRRS again as the world’s first 2T motorbike. The great result of Adam Raga has been replicated by Marc Riba, who at the controls of a TRRS 250 has achieved his first victory in Trial2. The good results of the team are completed with the second place of Jule Steinert in Trial2Women.

In the impressive forests of Sokolov, just over 100 kilometers from Prague, the World Trial Championship was back to business after the summer break. The rain, which already appeared on qualify on Saturday, stayed until moments before the race. Enough to increase the exigency of a technical track where it was easy to make mistakes.

Adam Raga was sixth in qualify, far from his top rival, Toni Bou. A complicated position. Already in the race, the TRRS rider went from less to more, quickly getting in the race after some errors and managing to set the pace from the first lap, standing out with Jaime Busto. Thanks to a spectacular start in the second pass in the sections, the advantage accumulated from the third section was already more than important. The great management in the rest of the race was consolidated with an exciting victory and the confirmation of the second place in the championship in a season with eight podiums for TRRS, two of them in the top of the podium.

The second great surprise of the day was Marc Riba. In the first lap of Trial2 was already leading the race with Jack Peace. During the second lap Marc was very concentrated and managed to improve his previous partial, confirming the victory. This is his third podium in Trial2, a category that stands out for its equality and exigency. Less inspired was Luca Petrella, 14th, followed by Sam ObradóSondre Haga has been 17th.

Brilliant second position in Trial2 Women for Jule Steinert, a result that allows her to move up to third position in the standing.

The last race of the current World Championship will take place next week with the Italian GP.
