Jaime Busto wint de indoor X-Trial in Parijs. Voor de jonge Spanjaard is het zijn eerste X-Trial overwinning.
Adam Raga, die zijn eerste wedstrijd reed na zijn blessure werd 2e en Takahisa Fujinami werd 3e.
“I am very happy with this result. We completed a good first round of the World Championship, finishing on the podium and, after some not such good events, we have got our rhythm back again. We have been training very hard for the last few months and today we have been rewarded. The bike worked wonders and I would like to thank the whole team for their help. We came to Paris convinced that we could do things well and that’s the way it has been. I withstood the pressure in the final with Adam [Raga] very well and I am very happy with this victory.”
“We finished in seventh place by very little, only three tenths. Obviously, it was not our goal but today I felt good on the bike, with confidence. The zones were very slippery and I had bad luck in the first zone, because of a small error. After that I fell, adding a ‘five’ in an area that should have been a ‘zero’. I kept on fighting to the end and the following areas didn’t go badly for me, but I just missed my ticket to the next round.”
