Geneva Indoor Trial

A clearly determined Toni Bou – Repsol Montesa got his season off to the best possible start by winning round one of the 2011 SPEA FIM X-Trial World Championship, held in Genoa, Italy.

Toni Bou finished the qualifying round without picking up a single penalty point and took the lead of the trail in the semi-final, a round which the several times World Champion finished with 5 points, half those of his nearest rival.

With this advantage, Bou was able to make the most of his credit in a final consisting of three parallel races and three individual zones.

Bou’s triumph puts him in pole position for a fifth consecutive title as the series now takes a short break before resuming in January.

Toni Bou says: “I am delighted with this victory,” explains the Repsol sponsored motorcycle rider. “It was really important for me to get a good result in Italy and now I can go into the break feeling confident. It was a very close event, but I rode well and I am happy to finish above Albert Cabestany -Sherco, who was tough to beat.”

“Right now I am taking the championship one round at a time as it is too early to start thinking about a fifth title,” continues The Trial Champion Bou.

“I know that Cabestany and Adam Raga – Gas Gas will train hard during the next month and they will want to beat me in Marseille. I must also concentrate and work hard to give myself the best chance of another victory in France.”
