TRS Prepared for 2017 TrialGP season

HUGE aspirations and solid representation of TRS Motorcycles in the World Trial Championship 2017 ..

After a fantastic start to the season for the TRS Motorcycles Factory Team, adding his second consecutive runner-up title in the X-Trial World Championship, it’s time to face the World Trial Championship.

Changes in regulations
The 2017 edition is presented with a new promoter, Sport 7, which will introduce important new regulations and organization in the championship.

The events taking place in Europe will have a scoring day, while those celebrated outside this continent will have two scoring races on the same weekend.

The constructors championship also gets changes. Now the points are the result of adding the results of two categories: TrialGP and Trial2. Another significant change is that in Trial2 2T bikes are limited to 250cc.

Objective: the world championship in all categories
Following the successes of 2016 and 2017, the entire TRS Motorcycles Factory Team is ready to fight for the Trial World Championship in their respective categories.

In TrialGP we find Adam Raga, who remained on the podium throughout the previous season and his great regularity will once again be a decisive factor. Raga will pilot a TRS One RR, with which throughout the preseason has worked hard to look for greater excellence in its technique.

In Trial2 we will have four TRS Motorcycles riders: Luca Petrella, Marc Riba, Sam Obradò and Sondre “Gekko” Haga. Young, talented and hungry for victory. Luca Petrella also showed last season that he is one of the favorites to the title.

In Trial125 there will also be representation of TRS Motorcycles through the young Eric Miquel, another rising value that, in addition, will collaborate in the evolution of the new TRS One 125, which will be presented commercially in the second half of the year.

In females, in the category Trial2Women we will have a rider with great talent to the controls of a TRS RR: Jule Steinert.

The first stop of the 2017 World Trial Championship 2017 will take place on 13 and 14 May in Camprodon.

TRIALGP SPAIN – CAMPRODON (GIRONA) | 13 -14 MAY

The mountains in the heartland north of Barcelona will provide the perfect setting to get the new era of TrialGP underway. The Noassar training area just outside the town of Camprodon is widely recognised as one of the best venues in Europe and is frequented by many of the World’s leading riders such is the variety and scope of the terrain that is hidden on the vast covered hillsides. 

Breaking from the more expected Spanish style sections, the hazards will make the most of its natural landscape with steep bankings and rounded boulders creating an almost British feel to the event. TrialGP Spain will have the honour of being the first to witness the new Saturday Qualification process when each-and-every rider will have to fight, within their class, for their Sunday start position. Contested over a single timed section on Saturday afternoon, this new format is poised to cause some early drama and guaranteed to serve some great action right from the off.

Jordi Tarrés (Team Manager):  
“We started the World Championship at home in Camprodon. The motivation and confidence continues to grow, especially after the great performance proving in the X-Trial. Adam is more suited to the bike and his good form tells us that it is possible to win races and be ambitious. As a team we are very pleased to have a wide representation in all categories, with options as well as great results.” 

TRIALGP

Adam Raga #67
“We have completed a satisfactory X-Trial season, proving very good level and now we are prepared for outdoor world. The goal will be to fight for victory in every race and be regular. There are new changes in the rules, but the essence of sports does not change and it will be interesting to see how the season evolves with these new developments”.

TRIAL2

Luca Petrella #204
“”I look very motivated the new season and aim to be on the podium in all possible races. There are changes in the category and it will be interesting to see how they feel to the championship. The mystery for me is that I will not be in the Japanese Grand Prix and it will make it difficult for me at the end of the season to lose those points.” 
Marc Riba #209 
“We arrived in good physical condition and very motivated to do it really well. We have the level and the doubt will be regularity. We are working on adapting to the bike and being more competitive. I was surprised to find a very competitive 250 and is certainly an important point to face the season with guarantees.” 
Sam Obradò #222
“I really want to start the new season of the World Championship. Already last year it was time to adapt to the regulation, the category and make mistakes. Now it’s the turn to think about results. The fact that the first race is at home is also a plus of motivation and we will try to be up from the beginning of the season.” 
Sondre “Gekko” Haga #223
“After a long Norwegian winter with a lot of good training, I look forward
to the Trial GP season starting. It has been a very good workout winter on
the new TRS 250cc that I am very pleased with. There is a lot of power in
the bike and the cluch I am particularly pleased with. I have already
tested myself and the bike against many of my competitors in 3 rounds of
European Championship in April and felt really good both with the bike and
my riding. Now I’m ready to get started with the first Trial GP round in
Spain.” 

TRIAL 125

Eric Miquel #301
“It will certainly be a difficult season, with high-level rivals battling for victory. Personally I have prepared this preseason with my TRS 125 to do the best possible and be ahead of the first race. I have a lot of confidence in the bike and in the team, something that is a plus of motivation for this new season.” 

TRIAL2 Women

Jule Steinert (TRS):  
“In 2017 I compete in the German, European Women and Trial2 Women World Championship.
The European Championship in Zelhem 2017 was my first international race on my TRS and I reached the 4th place there. I’m really happy with this position and highly motivated for the rest of this season. I hope to reach the top 3 in the Trial2 Women World Championship!”
