Jorge Casales (GASGAS Factory Racing)- As It Happened
“To finish what has been a tough season with these very positive results feels so good. Everyone at GASGAS was really looking forward to this season, and despite not getting the results we wanted at the first two events we kept working and improving and finishing with 2-3 results is a great reward for everyone. We re-grouped for this final trial and things have gone very well. I felt my riding was good and my bike was incredible. Being competitive at the final round of the series gives us all a lot of motivation to be even more prepared for 2021. Generally, both days here have been good, only a few mistakes on the first lap today, day two, but after those, I rode consistently and got another podium result. A very positive end to the championship.”

“It feels great to win another Trial-E title, and also to finish the championship is a very positive way. This is a great result for both myself and GASGAS. We had some very strong competition this year. They really showed us at the first round that they had worked a lot during the off-season and that they had very good machinery and riders. We knew that we needed to do our very best here this weekend, that we needed to win both days. We started working hard after the opening round of the championship, and the team really did work very hard to make improvements. The sections this weekend were not too difficult, so I knew that being focused and riding consistently, without silly mistakes, would be so, so important. To keep this title, it means a lot to me and GASGAS.”
