Raga Halts Bou’s Winning Run at French GP

Posted:

Gas Gas rider Adam Raga brought an end to Repsol Honda's Toni Bou‰Ûªs 100% winning run in the 2015 FIM Trial World Championship when he took the victory on the second day of the French Grand Prix in Andon on the weekend.

Raga trailed Bou, who had won all nine counting days to date, by a single mark at the end of the first lap before then turning that small deficit into a twelve mark lead come the end of lap two.

Although Bou produced one of his trademark closing performances by cleaning the final twelve sections it was still not enough to prevent Raga brining to a halt his unbeaten run so far this season. Adam's winning margin was four marks come the finish as the top two ended the day well clear of third placed Jeroni Fajardo ‰ÛÒ Beta.

Fajardo upped his game on the last two laps to claim the final podium place as he came home five marks the better of yesterday‰Ûªs top three finisher Takahisa Fujinami ‰ÛÒ Repsol Honda who ended day two in fourth position to complete a solid weekend for the veteran campaigner. Albert Cabestany ‰ÛÒ Sherco also dropped a place compared with his Saturday result as he was unable to overcome his Japanese rival and had to be content with fifth spot today.

The concluding day of round five of the 2015 FIM Trial World Championship did little to alter the order at the top of the general standings with Bou still well clear of the chasing pack. With the exception of Fujinami who climbed into fourth place in the title race, one point ahead of Cabestany, the top five remain unchanged.

On a day when the sun shone strongly once again, only minor modifications were made to a couple of hazards ahead of today‰Ûªs competition. However section ten had to be cancelled for the World Pro class for safety reasons on the second lap as a large boulder became dangerously dislodged and therefore an alteration to avoid this part was made for lap three.

Outside of the top five it was Jaime Busto ‰ÛÒ Repsol Honda who was the best of the rest in sixth place as he came in eight marks in front of Eddie Karlsson ‰ÛÒ Montesa who recorded a career best seventh spot. Home rider Alexandre Ferrer ‰ÛÒ Sherco took eighth, whilst Jorge Casales ‰ÛÒ Beta and James Dabiil ‰ÛÒ Vertigo sealed the top ten today respectively in the World Pro category.

Completing this intensive part of the season when five rounds will have been contested over a six week period, the 2015 FIM Trial World Championship continues in Sant Julia de Loria, Andorra next weekend.
