|After the summer break the TrialGP World Championship came back to live the 7th round of the season. The town of Sokolov was the place where the TrialGP paddock would be settled, with Jeroni Fajardo and Toby Martyn arriving with high hopes towards this round after the podium that each other took in the latest TrialGP USA.
In the Qualification Section from Saturday Jeroni Fajardo made a solid run to end 5th, booking himself a proper starting position for Sunday’s race. When in the race, the opening lap saw Fajardo struggling to keep up with the front riders’s pace. With 5 maximums coming to the end of this first lap, his punctuation increased to 34 marks to fall into a discreet 7th place. But things would change dramatically on lap 2, when the Czech fans would see Fajardo at his best as our factory rider was able to reduce to only 17 marks his score through the 15 sections, a great performance that gave him big chances to get into the podium. He ended with a total of 54, the same as Jaime Busto (Montesa) and only 1 more than Toni Bou (Montesa), who scored 53. In the end, Fajardo had to settle with 4th place due to a lower number of cleans.
After this race Fajardo will begin the last round of the season 10 points behind the 3rd place in the Championship Standings. We hope him to put in a strong ride in Italy and keep his championship podium chances alive until the last moment.
