Toni Bou simply sublime in Great Britain
With a winning margin of thirty-one marks, the performance by Toni Bou ‰ÛÒ Repsol Honda on the opening day of the British Grand Prix that marked round seven of the 2016 FIM Trial World Championship was simply sublime.

Now almost certain of a straight tenth outdoor title, Bou made light work of the mainly man-made course at Tong losing just four marks over the entire Trial including a clean last lap.

Whilst overshadowed by Bou‰Ûªs incredible display, British rider, James Dabill ‰ÛÒ Vertigo was still delighted as he took a career best second spot in front of his many home fans. A further seven marks back Adam Raga ‰ÛÒ TRS could only manage third position today and saw any last chance of him stopping Bou taking the title all but disappear as Toni now moves twenty points clear in the general standings with just three counting days remaining.

On a day when the sun finally shone following the rain showers of the previous days, the greasy conditions dried as the competition wore on. Albert Cabestany ‰ÛÒ Sherco ended up a distant fourth as he beat fifth place Takahisa Fujinami ‰ÛÒ Repsol Honda by just two marks. Still recovering from the injuries he sustained in France, Jeroni Fajardo ‰ÛÒ Vertigo battled to take sixth spot, leaving Jaime Busto ‰ÛÒ Repsol Honda, Franz Kadlec ‰ÛÒ Gas Gas and Eddie Karlsson ‰ÛÒ Montesa to occupy seventh, eighth and ninth places respectively. Spain‰Ûªs Oriol Noguera ‰ÛÒ Montesa rounded out today‰Ûªs top ten in the TrialGP class as he equalled his best ever finish.

Bou‰Ûªs win today marked the occasion of the two hundredth GP win for Montesa as they secured the manufacturers‰Ûª title for an incredible nineteenth time. Toni said. ‰ÛÏThis is an amazing moment for both me and the team. To be able to take such a great victory and to produce my best riding and in doing so take the win, number two hundred for Montesa and on day when we won the manufacturer‰Ûªs title too feels so good.‰Û
