Bou, who makes his debut at X-Trial Budapest, will take on the 2018 winner and reigning world number two Adam Raga (TRS) as well as the two riders who made the podium alongside him last season: Jaime Busto (Gas Gas) and Benoit Bincaz (Beta). Putting into the mix Miquel Gelabert (Sherco) as well, there are plenty of youth hopefuls hoping to overthrow the discipline‰Ûªs veteran contingent this season.

For the opening Round in Budapest, experienced competitors Jeroni Fajardo (Gas Gas), Britain‰Ûªs James Dabill (Beta) and spectacular Japanese star Takahisa Fujinami (Repsol Montesa-HRC) will join Vertigo‰Ûªs Jorge Casales to complete the field.
