Toni Bou Aims For 20th World Championsip In Italy
The 2016 FIM Trial World Championship wraps up this weekend in Italy with a crucial date for Toni Bou and the Repsol Honda Team.

The Montesa Cota 4RT rider is on the verge of a championship win that will increase his status as the most-garlanded world champion.

Sitting on a 31 point advantage over nearest second place rival, Toni Bou looks set to clinch a tenth Outdoor Trial title this weekend in San Pietro Mussolino, Italy. This will bring the Spaniard‰Ûªs total tally for Indoor and Outdoor to twenty, further consolidation of his now legendary standing as the most decorated champion in motorcycle history.

"Anyone who thinks that it is already in the bag is mistaken, although with a 31 point advantage we are very well set up to get the title." Bou admitted. "There hasn‰Ûªt been a single easy trial for me this season in the championship.

"It has been really tough for the physical condition that I have had to compete in. Just when I thought that I had got over the shoulder injury, it came back. Luckily, I‰Ûªve got a cushion of points and I can ride easier, without any pressure.

"The Italian trial is the final trial of the year and I will try and do my very best."

There is a very high chance that the Repsol Honda Team rider will scoop the title in the first of the two ‰Û÷match balls‰Ûª of the Italian GP. A seventh place would be enough to seal the title, although until now the Montesa Cota 4RT ace has never finished in such a low position.
