Meanwhile, Toni‰Ûªs team-mate at Repsol Honda Team, Japanese Takahisa Fujinami, arrives at the Silsden event fired up after having recently made it onto the podium in the trial in Belgium. ‰Û÷Fujigas‰Ûª hopes to continue in this fashion and holds a fine string of previous results in England.
"We are reaching the final part of the world championship and I think I am in good enough shape to finish the championship well," Fujinami expressed. "In Belgium we managed to reverse a difficult situation and, after a summer in which we have trained hard, we hope to continue with this string of good results in both England and Italy."
Since 2012 Toni Bou has won every one of the eleven trials held in Great Britain, as well as four clinched in 2007, 2009 and 2010, making a total of fifteen victories on the island.
