On The Pegs Vol. 2 Issue 8 - August 2017 P 147 Takahisa Fujinami It was a very good trial, I think I did very well and, after what happened in Andorra, here we have made up some good points for the championship. We are going to the United States on a roll and will be hoping to get more results like these.” Behind him a battle raged for the remaining podium posi- tions between Dabill, Raga and Fujigas with the final order look- ing too close to call before the Japanese star was able to break clear with a sensational second lap of just six marks for a total of twenty-eight. Dabill’s hopes of a home podium evaporated in the fierce heat and three maximums on the final lap dropped him to a frustrating fourth, just two marks behind Raga. Fajardo matched Dabill’s score of thirty-two, but lost out on a tie-break as Spanish teenager Jaime Busto - Repsol Honda failed to take his third podium in a row, ending the day a fur- ther eight marks adrift in sixth. Italy’s Matteo Grattarola - Gas Gas was seventh on forty-one before a thirteen-mark gap back to Spain’s Albert Cabestany - Sherco. Spaniards Jorge Casales - Beta and Miquel Gelabert - Sherco tied for ninth on seventy-two marks with Casales taking the place on a tie-break. RESULTS 1. Toni Bou (HON) 2.
