Toni Bou claims victory in a highly-complicated Spanish TrialGP

Posted:

Repsol Honda Team rider Toni Bou started the Trial Outdoor World Championship in the best way possible with a convincing triumph and a notable display in CamprodÌ_n this weekend.

The weather turned out to be one of the main protagonists in today‰Ûªs trial. After a fine start yesterday during the qualifying round, conditions took a turn for the worst later with storms blowing up after the initial phase had finished. Riders awoke today to a splendid sunny day, before a radical change took hold, with torrential downpours and even hail. The result was fifteen sectors now far harder than had been previously expected.

Toni Bou rose to the occasion, clinching a 90th world championship outdoor win. The tougher the hazards, the better the Repsol Honda Team ace performed to finish the day with a considerable advantage over closest rival Adam Raga. Bou finished with a twelve point gap, which lowered his first lap score by ten marks over the nearest second place rival. The champion, aboard the Montesa Cota 4RT, becomes the first leader in the new season.

"The first trial of the year was a complicated one with a lot of nerves and pressure" Bou said. "This place is a paradise for trial, but it‰Ûªs not really the type that suits me best as I find it tough with all the mud. But I think I got through it pretty well.

"It was a hard event and I think the rain made it more difficult but I‰Ûªm very pleased about the victory as it has been a great way to start the season. Adam is pushing as hard as always ‰ÛÒ he‰Ûªs a really tough rival and I think that it will be a hard season for all of us."
