Top Two For Repsol Honda Trial Team At UK TrialGP

toni bou uk trialgp repsol hondaToni Bou extended his leadership further in the TrialGP World Championship with a notable victory in Great Britain. His Repsol Honda Trial Team companion Takahisa Fujinami accompanied Bou on the podium. The fifth round triumph in Tong takes the Repsol Honda Team rider’s British tally to fifteen wins as the current champion edges further ahead in the world championship overall standings.

 

Bou led the trial from pole to flag, as it were; yet in spite of a clear domination on the first lap – with eight marks compared to the sixteen of the nearest adversary – the multi-titled champ almost came a cropper on lap two with several errors that narrowed the gap with rivals. The champion finished the day seven points clear of Repsol Honda Team buddy Takahisa Fujinami, who occupied the second step of the podium. Jaime Busto, who was also in with a chance of a podium at the start of the race, made some costly mistakes in the final sections of the first lap, which, despite a recovery second time around, failed to improve on sixth place. In the provisional championship leader board Toni Bou is top with an eighteen-point advantage over Adam Raga, Takahisa Fujinami holds third and Jaime Busto fourth.

 

The areas of the ParkWood Offroad Centre in Tong were quite demanding, with complicated routes in some mud-drenched river areas. The next round of the TrialGP World Championship will be held in Kingman, Arizona, U.S.A. from 28th to 30th July.

 

Montesa, meanwhile, extends an advantage of 51 points over TRS in the constructor’s championship thanks to the victories of Bou in TrialGP and Francesc Moret in TR2.

It was not my kind of terrain, but I was comfortable. In the end, a mistake put the pressure on me to win the trial. It was a very good trial, I think I did very well and, after what happened in Andorra, here we have made up some good points for the championship. We are going to the United States on a roll and will be hoping to get more results like these.

I liked the terrain and despite a not-so-good result in the qualification, today I felt on good form and knew I could get a result. I tried to salvage what I could out of the sections and I am very happy with this podium, with the team double and my third place in the championship. I had trained a lot for this race and I have to thank the team for the work they have done here.

I started quite well, up until section eight, where the bike stopped. Then I made some more mistakes and wanted to finish the first lap to start the second one better. I'm happy with how I'd been on this last lap because I've improved a lot and although I haven’t been able to finish on the podium I think I did pretty well.
