Toni Bou returns to very well-known terrain, having triumphed six times previously in the Andorran round of the championship. In spite of having had to settle for the third step of the rostrum last year, the incumbent champion will be aspiring for top honours in 2018 in a place that he now considers to be ‰Û÷home soil‰Ûª. Bou currently leads the TrialGP category with a two-point advantage over the second and third placed rivals.
"In Japan I didn‰Ûªt have such good feelings, I had a relapse in the back injury and I was not well," Bou explained. "This told us that this year would be complicated. We must be alert at all times, to avoid agitating the injury again. We have been working on my back and although I am quite happy, I have had some discomfort, but less than when we started the world championship.
"I hope to have a good trial, I want to get a good result, and it will be very important to be on the podium to get points for the championship. It will be difficult to win, but we will have to make the most of it. You have to focus hard to avoid mistakes in the qualifying session."
