Toni Bou takes an incredible tenth X-Trial title
Toni Bou has clinched a third triumph of the season and sealed his tenth X-Trial World Championship title with a masterly exhibition of riding prowess in Marseille.

The Repsol Honda Team rider has added yet another accolade to an already lengthy roll of honour with an indisputable win at the Marseille X-Trial.

Bou rallied and pull himself back after an early setback in section two of the qualifying round which saw him pick up a five-mark penalty. From then on the Spaniard produced a flawless performance, making it through the five sections of the final without picking up as much as a single mark. An irrefutable victory over closest rivals Albert Cabestany and Adam Raga who were to share the podium with Bou in the Palais des Sport.

Toni Bou‰Ûªs overwhelming win now takes the Catalan‰Ûªs title tally to ten. The Repsol Honda Team has clinched the championship consecutively every year since 2007 and has broken just about every possible record in the discipline.

"Today went super-well. I‰Ûªm trilled because we suffered such a lot ‰ÛÒ it was a really complicated trial," Bou said.

"In the final, not only did Adam pressure me, but also Albert Cabestany was there throughout to complicate the evening. I should remind you that Adam Raga has been really competitive all season, really piling the pressure on. When you come up against a rival of this quality, the titles have much more merit.

"I‰Ûªm really pleased. Now it‰Ûªs time to carry on living this dream," the Spaniard concluded.

Next port of call for the Repsol Honda Team will be in two weeks time with the start of the FIM Trial Outdoor World Championship season in Olvan and Cal Rosal (Barcelona) on 9th and 10th April. The team‰Ûªs triumvirate remains the same with Toni Bou, the current champion, to sport the number one, Takahisa Fujinami, the number five and Jaime Busto, six.
