The GasGas Trial Factory Team riders remain in the fight for the subchampionship, occupying the second and third place in the overall standings in the absence of an event to be held in Italy.
Jeroni Fajardo and Jaime Busto have enjoyed their visit to Great Britain with a sixth and a seventh position, respectively. After this penultimate round of the TrialGP World Championship, the GasGas Trial Factory Team riders continue to occupy second and third place in the overall standings and keep their options open to take the second place in the World Championship. In the British race, the title was decided in favor of Toni Bou, who won today.
The last and decisive venue of the championship will be held in Italy and there the GasGas riders will defend their candidacy in the fight for the second place. Currently, Jeroni Fajardo is second overall, with a lead of 4 points over his teammate Jaime Busto. The next rider is at 5 points from the Catalan rider.
“We had a good advantage in the fight for the second place but in the last races the distances have narrowed. Our goal from the beginning of the championship was to finish in the second and third final position and, although we are occupying those positions, we have to react and not relax in the face of the last race. That will be the way to offer the performance we have exhibited during a good part of the season. There are only a few days until the next event and we will work to the maximum thinking of Italy so that we can achieve the objective of the brand.”
“Although yesterday we started the weekend quite well with a fourth place in Q2, today things have not gone so well. During the race, I did not feel comfortable; the bike worked well but I did not have good feelings. In the first lap I did not drive badly but in the second round it was difficult to complete the zones well and I made some more mistakes. Now we have to think about the last event and do our best in Italy.”
“It’s been a strange day. I felt pretty good and I did not ride badly, but we have been leaving points that have led us to end up in a bad position, in the sixth place. With this result, the fight for the second place has been adjusted and we will play it in Italy with Jaime [Busto] and Adam [Raga]. We are going to work to arrive in the best possible way to that test and to have a good race.”
