Trials

Another Double Victory For Toni Bou In Great Britain

Posted:

Repsol Honda Team‰Ûªs Toni Bou seized victory on both days of the British round of the 2015 FIM World Trials Championships held over the weekend.

The Spaniard maintains an unbeaten spell of eight consecutive wins since the 2015 season began.

Nord Vue, a rural area of Penrith, witnessed two days of great Trials action where an untouchable Toni Bou scored a new high for the season, riding to his eighth back-to-back victory ‰ÛÒ ten in total if one considers the two wins at the end of the previous campaign.

The result sees the Repsol Honda Team hero equal this best string of triumphs, achieved back in 2012, which was the greatest performance to date in the champion‰Ûªs career.

This afternoon‰Ûªs heavy downpours on day two and the expectation of an increased difficulty-level led to some sections being modified. Competitors set off to be faced with a mud-filled quagmire of a first lap, which began to dry out gradually, turning the route into a more ridable one as the trial went on.

Bou stunned the opposition straight away from the Nord Vue start-line, imposing himself on the first lap, where he picked up a five-point penalty in section three and little else. This effectively brushed aside any chance that rivals might have previously had.

The Spaniard even managed to improve on things with two marks on lap two and a fault-less final lap. Runner-up Adam Raga finished with a whopping thirty marks more than the Montesa Cota 4RT rider. Bou stretches his lead at the top of the overall table to thirty-four points over second-place Raga.

"I‰Ûªm really thrilled. Today I rode really comfortably throughout the trial and I‰Ûªm very pleased with the way that I handled it." Bou said. "It was a day to remember with a really good second and third lap.

"I‰Ûªm really happy with the result and with the great spell in the world championship. It‰Ûªs really tricky to win so many races in a row, because the pressure builds up and it‰Ûªs even harder with the ‰Û÷non-stop‰Ûª rule. But even so, to revive the sensations from 2012, an incredible year, means that I couldn‰Ûªt ask for anything more!

Spanish rider Adam Raga pulled in a pair of second place results for the weekend aboard his Gas Gas, while Albert Cabestany rounded out the podium on Saturday aboard his Sherco, with Beta's Jeroni Fajardo claiming the final step of the podium on Sunday.
