Toni Bou: 10th Trial World Championship

2011 Trial World Championship

After taking the win Sunday at France for the European Trial GP, the last round of the 2011 Outdoor Trial World Championship, Repsol Montesa Honda’s Toni Bou won his fifth outdoor title.

Now the 24-year-old Spaniard has 10 Trials world titles – five outdoor and five indoor.

Toni Bou (Repsol Honda Trial) says: “When you win a title you are never sure if you are going to win another. We worked the whole year for this feat and that was the tenth time I lived such a great moment. Today things went very well for us, with a very good first lap and another triumph.

“This is the way I wanted to win this championship where, as always, there was a lot of pressure. It does not matter if the difference with the rivals is more or less, in a World Championship there is always tension.”

After winning the 2011 Outdoor Trial World Championship with seven wins and four podiums in 11 rounds, Bou has now won five consecutive outdoor titles.

Repsol says: “Since Toni Bou arrived to the Repsol Montesa Honda team in 2007, he has not lost any World Champion. In less than five seasons, the ten World Championships and 5 Spanish Championships -4 Indoor and 1 Outdoor- achieved up to this moment consolidate the rider from Piera as the best Trial rider of these times. 24 year-old Toni Bou is writing one of the golden pages of this sport’s history, a feat that only great riders such as Dougie Lampkin or Jordi Tarrés were able to achieve.”
