This weekend Repsol Honda Team will be present as the latest edition of the FIM TrialGP World Championship gets underway in CamprodÌ_n on Saturday, May 19th.
Toni Bou begins the campaign as incumbent world champion and hot favourite to add another title to his collection of eleven outdoor wins. The Repsol Honda Team ace, the most successful in motorcycle history, starts the championship with a tally of no less than twenty-three world titles, in both indoor and outdoor competitions.
In the GPs held so far in Spain, Toni Bou has clinched a total of thirteen victories in the event. One of the aims of the Repsol Honda Team rider is to achieve the record of victories in the world championship. Thus far, Bou has accumulated a total of 97 triumphs, so in order to overtake Dougie Lampkin‰Ûªs benchmark of 99 victories, Toni will need to prevail in three GPs.
"One of the most important moments of the season has arrived: the start of the TrialGP World Championship." Bou commented. "As always, it is important to start on the right foot in this first event, which will be held on home soil.
"After the injury I picked up during the X-Trial season, I won‰Ûªt be at 100% fitness just yet and I will have to be careful not to have any physical setbacks. It is something that has happened in previous seasons, starting without being physically on top form, but we have faith in the good work that we are doing, so we believe that we can balance it out.
"It will be a long and complicated season because the rivals are always pushing to achieve the same goals that we have. We can not relax and we will have to fight until the final section in every trial."
