Never in contention for the win after an expensive open- ing lap that saw him part with thirty-six on observation and five on time, Spain’s Jaime Busto - Repsol Honda backed up his debut podium at TrialGP Andorra with a fighting third place, his solid second lap of just seven placing him four marks ahead of Japanese team- mate Takahisa Fujinami. Jeroni Fajardo - Vertigo was a further three marks adrift in fifth before a big gap to his fellow Spaniard Albert Cabes- tany - Sherco who, starting first following his qualification nightmare yesterday, showed great form to end the day with sixty-seven marks lost. Spain’s Miquel Gelabert - Sherco parted with seventy- four marks for a career best equalling seventh ahead of Franz Kadlec - Gas Gas from Germany on eighty-one, Italy’s Matteo Grattarola - Gas Gas on eighty-four and a disap- pointed James Dabill - Gas Gas from Britain who, after finishing third in qualification, rounded out the top ten on eighty-five marks.
