Adam Raga climbs to the third step of the podium at Motegi despite a difficult start to the race for the Gas Gasrider. A disputed five is given in the fourth section of the first lap, and this has conditioned the race for Raga who tried to overcome this initial setback that has separated him from the front runners.
Raga has kept his rhythm in the second lap, in which he regained second place on the board. Although later, another five on the final and decisive lap in section number six, has finally meant third place for the Gas Gas rider, who, despite this initial setback, starts the 2015 World Championship with a third place on the podium at the Motegi course in Japan.
For his part, Arnau Farré begins 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, who have enabled him to participate in the first round of the World Championship and he has done so with a seventh position. 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 finals, reserved for the young talents of trial.
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.”
