Toni Bou can now add yet another title, a 16th in X-Trial, to his extensive list of honours before the season comes to an end.

The Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme has announced the cancellation of the final round of the 2022 X-Trial World Championship scheduled to be held late October, handing the world title directly to Toni Bou.

Repsol Honda Trial Team rider Toni Bou has mathematically sealed the 2022 X-Trial World Championship title after the annulment of the final scheduled event set for 21 October. The Montesa Cota 4RT rider’s current advantage over his rivals means that Bou can now add yet another title, a 16th in X-Trial, to his extensive list of honours before the season comes to an end.

Since clinching a first X-Trial title in 2007, Bou has never stopped winning. In addition to the 16 consecutive X-Trial titles, he has also scooped another 15 in TrialGP, for a total tally of 31 world crowns.

Since clinching a first X-Trial title in 2007, Bou has never stopped winning.

With four wins out of four indoor races this year (Nice, Chalon-sur-Saone, Madrid and Barcelona), the Spaniard has accrued a total of 87 points in the indoor season, 20 per win, plus bonus points for having won 7 of the 8 total laps held. This has led to a thirty-point advantage over Adam Raga in second place. With one trial left to go, in Andorra on 8 October, and with a maximum score of only 22 points up for grabs, Toni Bou is officially the 2022 X-Trial champion.

“I’ve always said that it is a pity when a trial gets cancelled, and that’s the case again now; I would have liked to have been able to complete the whole championship; during the winter we did a great job with the team in the four trials we took part in before starting the outdoor championship and we were hoping to complete it with the two remaining events. Now, all that’s left is to try and win in Andorra in front of my friends and celebrate the title in style,” Bou said.

The final trial of the 2022 X-Trial championship takes place on 8th October at the Polisportiu d’Andorra, in Andorra.

After the event held in Cahors, France, last weekend, Toni Bou is one step shy of securing another TrialGP Outdoor World Championship medal. With twin trials to run at the TrialGP of Italy, Bou has a 36-point lead over the nearest second-placed rider. The Repsol Honda Trial Team rider needs only to finish to get the celebrations underway. This will mark a 16th consecutive outdoor title and a 32nd in his individual career.
