Toni Bou Clinches a 60th X-Trial World Championship Triumph in Granada
Repsol Montesa Honda's Toni Bou put in an exceptional performance as the FIM X-Trial World Championship returned to Granada to add his third victory of the season in front of 4,000 spectators.

The 12-time World Champion put in some firm and aggressive riding dropping just two marks in Round One, one in Round Two and dominating the Final against Gas Gas' Jaime Busto.

‰ÛÏI felt great today and was back to my most aggressive and effective riding," Bou said. "It was a very special night and I felt very comfortable although the pressure was very high when I was facing Adam Raga in the second round. This result is also very important for the Championship although we know it is not over yet.‰Û

TRRS' Adam Raga defeated Beta's Benoit Bincaz in the Consolation Final. The first section was the difference as Bincaz failed at the first obstacle while Raga scored just one mark on the same section, and the pair picked up just one mark each for the rest of their laps. Raga had struggled in Round One and only finished fifth which meant he met Bou in the Round Two heats where he finished five points behind the World Champion.

‰ÛÏThe podium is a good result and I was satisfied with my riding," Raga said. "It was a shame I could not qualify for the Final, but staying in the top three is essential for me to be able to fight for the title.‰Û

Miquel Gelabert and Gas Gas' Jeroni Fajardo were eliminated in Round Two despite a good showing to take fourth and third respectively in the first round.

Young guns Sondre Haga (TRRS), Aniol Gelabert (Scorpa) and Gabriel Marcelli (Montesa) were the riders eliminated in Round One. Marcelli was only one mark away from qualifying for Round Two, while the younger Gelabert made a decent debut on the X-Trial stage alongside his brother.

The fifth round of the FIM X-Trial World Championship takes place in Marseille on March 9th
