Defending champion Toni Bou claimed victory at the TrialGP Belgium ‰ÛÒ round six of the 2018 FIM Trial World Championship ‰ÛÒ at Comblain au Pont last weekend.

The Repsol Honda riders fourth win in a row stretches his lead to a very healthy twenty-three points with just two rounds now standing between him and a record-breaking twelfth consecutive World Championship crown.

‰ÛÏIt has been a very special weekend,‰Û

Toni Bou deals with a steep climb.
Successive maximums by Bou on sections six and seven where Raga recorded a pair of single-dab rides narrowed the gap dramatically and led to a tense run-in to the finish with Bou‰Ûªs total of forty-two ‰ÛÒ equalling his highest score of the season ‰ÛÒ plus one time penalty giving him just a four-mark advantage at the close.

Japanese fan favourite Takahisa Fujinami claimed a hugely popular podium finish in third, aided by a sensational single-dab ride in section thirteen, to end the day twelve marks adrift of Raga and four ahead of Busto who incurred four expensive time penalties.

Pole winner James Dabill finished a season-best fifth on seventy with championship challenger Gas Gas' Jeroni Fajardo from Spain slipping to sixth a further six marks back. Despite this he still holds second in the title chase, but is now just a single point ahead of Busto.

The TrialGP series now takes its August holiday and will resume in September for the final two rounds, starting with TrialGP Great Britain on 1st / 2nd.
