2013 Malaga X-Trial World Championship Results

Repsol Montesa Honda’s Toni Bou continued his dominance this past weekend in the 2013 X-Trail World Championship.

When the indoor X-Trial World Championship wrapped up in Malaga in Spain, Bou walked away with victory. Joining Bou on the Malaga podium were Sherco’s Albert Cabestany and Repsol Montesa Honda’s T. Fujinami. Bou Dominates Malaga X-Trail & Spanish Indoor Championship

Bou, who has now won the first three of five rounds in 2013 X-Trial, secured his victory in the first phase by gathering 11 points less than his closest rival Cabestany. In the second phase, he improved his record, receiving only 2 points and finishing with a total advantage of 21 points over the man in second, Cabestany.

The latest win increased Bou’s record to 10 consecutive victories in the X-Trial Championship as he chases his seventh indoor title.

Also held during the weekend at the same venue was the opening round of the Spanish Indoor Championship. And the winner? The man who defends his title, Bou.

The fourth round of the X-Trial World Championship will get underway March 23 in Bielefeld, Germany.

Toni Bou (Repsol Montesa Honda) says: “It was an amazing evening; I had virtually no trouble and felt very comfortable on the bike. Under those conditions, my confidence in myself and in the work we are doing increases.

“I have a comfortable lead in the Championship, I could not deny that, but there are still 40 points up for grabs and nothing is settled. So we will continue as we did until now. In Germany I will focus on achieving another victory to secure the final triumph. This beginning of the season has been perfect, as I lead the three Championships I have started. I could not ask for more.”
