Adam Raga clinches this evening an historic win at the first edition of the Hong Kong Indoor Trial, second round in World Indoor Series. Gas Gas rider, who defends the title achieved last season, adds his first triumph in this current championship and also takes the leadership in overall, drawed with Briton Dougie Lampkin scoring 18 points at the top of standings. Montesa-HRC's rider committed a decisive five in section 3 in the final, like Cabestany, while Raga cleaned it and only marked one point by exceeding the time limit.


Beta's rider, Albert Cabestany, reached the best result in qualification lap with only one failure during six observed sections, a high jump and the double lane race. Adam Raga didn't completed the last hazards so well although he took second place for the second lap. Lampkin, in this way, dropped a bar in the jump and added two points in the double lane in spite of winning to his countryfellow Jarvis and was the third. Freixa was also out for the final, after two expensive fives in an easy circuit, without sections too selectives. The Japanese Takahisa Fujinami rode rather well till he punctured his rear wheel in section four, and forced to Montesa's rider to some failures in last hazards.


Third section in the final became decisive. Lampkin and Cabestany fived it, while Raga only added a point that gave him the key for the win. Till the end, the Spaniard maintained his important average for arriving to the double lane race with a comfortable four points gap ahead of Lampkin. Despite the Briton was the best in the race, Lampkin couldn't do anything else to avoid the victory of who probably will be his main rival in the championship.

After Hong Kong Indoor Trial, World Indoor Series takes a break till the first Saturday on January, when the competition will return in Sheffield (Great Britain), where third round in calendar will be contested.
