Toni Bou wins another one for Repsol Montesa HRC

Posted:

Toni Bou ‰ÛÒ Repsol Montesa HRC rounded off his 2007 title winning campaign aboard his factory Cota 4RT with a convincing victory at the last Grand Prix of the 2007 FIM SPEA Trial World Championship in Andorra. On a hot and dry day, Bou once again proved himself a worthy champion and took the opportunity to claim his title in style at this, the now last counting event, with the series having seen what should have been the climax at the Belgium GP cancelled at short notice. All, but four of the fifteen sections were set on dry, steep and dusty rock outcrops high above the town of Sant Julia De Loria. The other hazards could be found in the local river, which at least offer some variety in the lengthy course. Bou and Adam Raga ‰ÛÒ Gas Gas, the 2006 World champion would eventually finish as runner up, found themselves locked on thirteen marks apiece after the first lap. Four stroke mounted Bou was actually the best on observation, but saw his clear lead lost as he incurred five time penalties at the end of a lap that had been conducted at great speed during the later stages. Lampkin held third position at the same point, just ahead of Albert Cabestany ‰ÛÒ Sherco and Jeroni Fajardo ‰ÛÒ Beta, with Fujinami back in sixth spot, well off the pace. With the temperature dropping slightly, Bou increased the heat on his rivals to complete his final tour for the amazing total of just six marks, to make himself a clear and popular winner in front of the many Spanish fans who had made the short journey to the small principality. Both Raga and Lampkin produced performances that matched their morning scores, to comfortably take second and third positions respectively. Fujinami recovered brilliantly to post the third best score on the last lap and doing some moved up to fifth spot by the end of the trial. The day was completed with Montesa once again taking the Manufacturers World title, with all three of their riders placed in the top five of the final individual standings. This team result further reinforcing the performance of the four stroke Cota 4RT on the World stage. ‰ÛÏObviously I was happy to hear that I had become World champion when they cancelled Belgium last week," Bou said. "But it was not the perfect way to take the title. Today has been fantastic, as I have had the chance to win it properly and in front of my family, friends and many, many fans. It was a nice day because I had no pressure, but I still wanted to win, especially at the last GP. I want to take this moment to thank everyone who has supported me this season, especially my family and the whole Repsol Montesa HRC team.‰Û
