Toni Bou CONQUISTA il titolo mondiale N° 22

Domenica scorsa in Repubblica Ceca, il pilota del team Repsol Honda Toni Bou, ha dovuto fare spazio nella bacheca dei trofei per un altro titolo mondiale. Il secondo posto di giornata è bastato per accumulare punti sufficienti per sigillare il titolo mondiale TrialGP 2017. Undici campionati outdoor e undici indoor la dicono lunga sull’assoluto dominio di Toni Bou nel trial per oltre un decennio. Il pilota Repsol Honda continua a fare storia. A Toni bastava il podio In Repubblica Ceca per vincere il mondiale e cosi è stato.

Repsol Honda Team brother-in-arms Jaime Busto ran the full range of emotions during the trial. At best, the Basque rider led the event for most of the first lap. By the end, the promising young rider was holding third spot with the corresponding third position in the overall championship rankings.

Likewise, Takahisa Fujinami performed well in spite of being one of the first riders to start the TrialGP course on this wet and humid morning. Fortunately the rain held off throughout the trial although showers during the night had left the terrain in a delicate state which made the second lap all the more challenging. Fujinami raised his game and occasionally flirted with the podium positions before posting fifth final place.

The eighth and final event in the TrialGP world championship takes place next weekend in Arco di Trento, Italy.

TRIAL: 2ND  CHAMPIONSHIP: 1STToday was a complicated day from the beginning. I battled to win the trial but today was not to be, although the aim today had been to get the title. I am very happy despite several issues. The wet terrain we found today is not really the one I like the most, or one that favours the bike best, but we fought hard to finish on the podium. This season has been a very good one, the first victory in Camprodón and the two in Japan, where Adam Raga lost points, have been important, as well as the two victories in the United States.

TRIAL: 5TH  CHAMPIONSHIP: 5THI want to congratulate Toni, for his eleventh outdoor title! Today was not an easy trial and today I wanted to fight to get a good result, but the terrain was very difficult. Jaime and I were very tight at the end and neither of us were comfortable. I finished fifth when I could have done better – I could have finished third but two fives prevented it. This week I will work harder to finish fourth in the final trial.

TRIAL: 3RD  CHAMPIONSHIP: 3RDI started quite well, with very few points, but I really was not at all comfortable in the sections of this trial. I gradually picked up penalty points and dropped down some positions on the second lap, but I dug in hard and suffered a bit and was finally able to finish in third, which is also very important for me in the championship.

Team ManagerToday was not an easy race for any of our riders. It will be a good idea to analyze exactly what happened. Toni suffered until the final moment in a strange race. Now, it is time to celebrate the title, which was the main objective and we will try to do better in the next and final world championship trial next week.

I really must congratulate the whole team for the great work that they have done. Not just here, but throughout the whole season. And not only the crew here, but also all of those in the factory and back in HRC: they have all made this great success possible in events like this which are not easy to win.
