Guadalajara hosts the second round of the National Championship Trial in Spain

Singüenza will host the fourth round of Trial Championship in Spain. The last meeting was more than a month ago, particularly since 13 March at the circuit in Bocairent, Valencia.

The categories that will participate in the competition in Guadalajara are the TR1, TR2, TR3, TR4, Junior and Cadet. All this is organized by the Moto Club Alto Henares, which has prepared top-level areas where pilots have to go to 100% if they want to win. The show is assured since the course will be in 12 scoring areas where predominates stone steps and granite sand, earth and loose stone.

Toni Bou leads the overall standings of TR1 category with 20 points followed by Adam Raga with 17 points and Albert Cabestany in third place with 15 points. In TR2 José María Moral leads the category with 49 points with Marc Riba, who is just a point of difference and followed by Samuel Obrado with 41. TR3 is headed by Sergio Puyo with 57 points, in second place is Guillermo Soler with 43 and Francesc Recio is third with 32 points. In TR4 Jordi Ramonet is first with 54 points, with David Oliver situated in second position with 40 points and third José María Segura with the same points as Oliver.

Pablo Suarez, Eric and Joan Miquel Lopez are leading the provisional Junior with 60, 51 and 43 points respectively, while Martín Riobo, Pol Medina and Rodrigo Marchal of Cadet category are with 60, 47 and 47 points.

There is an added difficulty for pilots who also participate in international competitions at the same time that national. Some riders are under pressure to decide how to train throughout the week as competitions like the World Cup and have different rules that the national. In the case of the World Cup it is a non-stop competition, so that participants cannot stop the bike between zone and zone while it is competing. In the case of Spain Trial Championship the race can be stopped, so that it is possible to stop the bike between the areas when they are competing. Adam Raga, a pilot from TRS spoke about the decision of having to compete in two bands: “In the national is possible to stop and in World Cup is non-stop. That difference is what gives problems and difficulties for the drivers.” Albert Cabestany, Sherco rider also believes that is necessary to prioritize the workouts: “I’m training with the non-stop technique because I prioritize the world”.

Riders must run two laps of the course in a maximum time of three hours, with the margin of a minute and a half by area except for the category TR1 which will make the two consecutive passes by each of the scoring areas on the same time.
