Det har vært spenning rundt hvilken merke som ville sikre seg Adam Raga, etter at han nå har fullført sesongen – uten support fra fabrikken, men med suksess!
Ikke før er det «lekket» positive rykter om at Gas Gas kommer til å gjenoppstå kommer nyheten: Han skal kjøre TRS! Det er et signal om at produktet må stå til mer enn godkjent, for han har fortsatt ambisjoner om å vippe Toni Bou ned fra toppen av pallen også sammenlagt.
Jeg regner med de fleste her leser engelsk og gjengir pressemeldingen :
The Catalan driver has come to an agreement with TRS Motorcycles by which Raga joins the squad led by Jordi Tarrés. Ultimate goal set by both parties is to ensure the success of this new entirely Catalan project driven by the passion of its members.
Adam Raga will contest the World Motorcycle Trials Championship for TRS Motorcycles as a result of the agreement reached. The Ulldecona-born driver will defend TRS´ colors from now on. Jordi Tarrés´ experience in trial guarantees the success of the project.
Raga, aged 33, has decided to join this manufacturer as it has special meaning for him, considering it started from the scratch in Catalunya. Double world champion and no less than four times winner in Trial Indoor World Championship, one of the most successful records in the history of the series, Raga approaches this new era with optimism and looks for success in the remaining events of the World Championship.
Adam Raga: “I am looking forward to riding the new bike. Almost immediately I noticed this project was leading to an excellent motorbike, in my opinion the best one never built. I believe there are a number of reasons for that. Jordi has vast experience and this is reflected in the new bike. Jordi, who was my coach at the beginning of my racing career, has done an exceptional job in developing this project. I must now honor the confidence vested in me by TRS, achieving the best possible results and exploring new limits. I hope to achieve major successes for this Catalan project, because it is worth every effort.”
