Huge crowds watched on as Repsol Honda's Toni Bou and Emma Bristow clinch the TrialGP and TrialGP Women 2018 FIM Trial World Championship crowns at TrialGP Great Britain - round seven of the series held at Silsden on Sunday.
For Spanish superstar Bou it is his twelfth consecutive title while British lioness Bristow has now won for the last five years, but the manner of their victories on Addingham Moorside - high above the Yorkshire town regarded as the spiritual home of Trial - was very different.
With the sections laid out on the imposing boulders and towering rock faces that make the venue so iconic, Bou was forced to wait until the very last section of the Trial to make sure of the win and the title with one round still to go. By contrast, Bristow dominated her class to take a clear-cut and emotional home GP win.
"I'm very happy," says Bou. "To take the title with a victory is a very special moment. I had to fight to section fifteen for the win with Miquel and Adam today. It was a perfect way to take the championship. For me it was a difficult season after injuring my back so I'm really going to enjoy this moment."
It was Spain's Miquel Gelabert who took a shock early lead, completing the opening lap for a loss of just three marks compared to Bou's total of eight and TRRS' Adam Raga who was on nine.
