After the agony of Spain, where despite being the fastest qualifier the heavy rain eradicated any advantage for Jaime Busto, this time in Andorra in the sun it worked. He led from Adam Raga by two marks after the opening lap, with Toni Bou down in third position on twenty marks lost as the top three all suffered time penalties. On the second lap the wheels began to come off Busto’s challenge though as he fived section ten, with Raga taking a five on section four as Bou began his fight back. A single mark on section ten left it all to play for, and he knew a three-mark penalty on section fifteen was needed to challenge for the victory. It was not to be though, as a jubilant Raga stood proud on the top step of the podium.
Jorge Casales (Beta-ESP): A massive talent who sometimes gets over-looked, but his energy and commitment remains and he was rewarded with fourth. Adam Raga (TRRS-ESP): Never one to easily admit defeat, he pushed all the way for a much deserved victory in front of Busto and Bou in a very close result. Matteo Grattarola (Gas Gas-ITA) Jaime Busto (Repsol Honda-ESP) takes to the podium for the first time in his young career.
