2012 X-Trial Championship

The second of eight rounds in the 2012 FIM X-Trial World Championship occurred in Geneva, Switzerland, over the weekend, with a not-so surprising name in the winners circle.

The man? Repsol Montesa’s Toni Bou, who also won the season-opener in Strasbourg, France. Joining Bou on the Geneva podium were Sherco’s Albert Cabestany and Bou’s teammate, Takahisa Fujinami.

Bou was nearly flawless throughout the round, and became the only rider to conquer the man-made mountain during the final, stretching his advantage by five marks.

The 2012 FIM X-Trial World Championship now heads to Marseille, France for round three that will be held over next Friday and Saturday.

Attached above are video highlights of Round 2 in the 2012 FIM X-Trial World Championship.
