Raga Wins Sheffield XTrial

Stop press ..
Adam Raga has won the first round of the 2016 FIM XTrial Championship, held in Sheffield UK.

r8Adam Raga on his TRS one has done the seemingly impossible and won the Sheffield indoor Trial, round one of the 2016 FIM X-Trial Championship, to become the 2016 King of Sheffield.

Adam led the event all night with the best performance on the qualification lap and then returned after the break to perform brilliantly once again in the final, where he lost just two penalty marks and one on time, to keep reigning World Champion Toni Bou at bay.

After a scare when he punctured his rear tyre on section two on the qualification lap, requiring a quick change of wheel before returning into the arena, the rest of the night all went to plan.

It was an evening of firsts, the first world indoor for 2016, the first World indoor for the new to the market TRS one and also the first opportunity for the British public to see the bike in the flesh .. and of course, first place on the podium for Adam Raga.

Many Thanks to Trials Media for the images.
