so more people are in the fight and more things could happen . At the moment , this has benefited us because being more regular than others has given us a title with a big points advantage : when we haven ’ t won , we ’ ve finished runner-up . With seven wins and three second places , it is a super all-round championship and those who have finished second and third , in several trials have ended up off the podium . This gives you more peace of mind in the championship .
When I say that we have made mistakes , it is precisely that : in some trials we were close to finishing fifth or sixth . This year it was really easy for that to happen as there is no room for any mistakes !
The current sections are something that conditions the results : easy trials lead to more equality and a greater number of rivals in the battle for the win .
It ’ s partly normal , because it ’ s more even ; but this is entertainment , and you have to put on a show . There have been easy trials , with few marks , and others that have been less easy . I think the level of the riders is so high among the frontrunners that it guarantees that points are scored . If the level were any lower , there would be no show .
