Toni Bou Set To Seal Ninth World Title This Weekend

Posted:

Repsol Honda Team face up to a crucial challenge this weekend in Portugal in the penultimate event of the season which could see Toni Bou secure a ninth career title.

The holidays are over for Repsol Honda Team ace Toni Bou who returns this weekend to Pa̤os de Ferreira, Portugal for the eighth GP of the FIM Trial World Championship, hoping to clinch the title. This would be the ninth consecutive championship title as the Repsol Honda Team legend heads towards what could prove to be an unmatchable milestone.

Two straight wins in the United States GP, before a well-deserved summer hiatus, stretched the lead over nearest rivals and leaves Bou in a comfortable position. The champ will get a first shot at taking the season‰Ûªs top honours in Portugal, needing victories on the Montesa Cota 4RT on both days to mathematically seal the prize.

Bou can expect the same kind of tough, dogged competition that he has experienced throughout the entire season with main rival Adam Raga expected to be hot on his heels. Raga is currently in second place, 34 points off the Repsol Honda Team top gun.

‰ÛÏTo be able to arrive in Portugal with the chance of winning the title says a lot about the championship that we have had." Bou stated. "Everything has gone really well. Except for France and Andorra we have been able to win everything else.

"The two wins in the US have been very important. To have four races still to go with a 34 point advantage is a lot and we can confront this GP with comfort. Nothing is set and the plan is to take it day-by-day, to try to win as always, but if we don‰Ûªt, we will keep fighting for the same goal in the next race.‰Û
