Jaime Busto and the 2022 Nitro continue their podium tally in the international scene with another Top 3 performance at the opening round of the 2021 X-Trial World Championship, which took place this weekend in Andorra and where Busto delivered yet another outstanding performance to clinch 3rd place.
Busto didn’t feel the absence of the X-Trial World Championship on the racing program last season. Aboard the 2022 Nitro he immediately found the flow and confidence to put in the 2nd best score of round 1 with 7 marks, three shy from Italian Grattarola. In the 2nd round he would eventually end up with the same punctuation as in the previous outing, this is 7 marks and this time 3rd best only 2 marks away from earning access to the final. In the play-off for 3rd and 4th, Busto beat Grattarola by being able to go clean in the tie-break section after both riders had remained feet-up in section 1.
Really positive start to the indoor campaign for Jaime Busto and Vertigo considering the short calendar the 2021 X-Trial features. Next and last stop will be the iconic Barcelona event at the Palau Sant Jordi, set to take place the 21st of November.
