2014 X-Trial World Championship Title

Toni Bou simply can’t be stopped. Following another dominate performance this past weekend at the penultimate round of X-Trial World Championship in Milan, the Spaniard clinched his eighth consecutive title in the indoor series.

This makes for 15 trials titles – eight in X-Trial (indoor), and seven in the outdoor championship. This makes Bou the most successful rider in Trials history.

His statistics in the FIM X-Trial World Championship are impressive: 40 victories, 25 of them consecutive from the 60 rounds where he has competed since 2005. This was all acheived by 27-years old, and he is motivated to do more.

“For me the indoor trials are very special, I already said that before, and winning the title of the class is fantastic. I have eight and I will continue fighting to keep the motivation,” Bou said.

“I don’t want to stop now. Today I felt very well from the beginning, I started very aggressive and I felt comfortable on the bike. I am very happy to win like this. Now with the championship already secured, we will work for the outdoor World Championship. We have a lot of work to do, but the results we are getting are our best motivation.”

During the Milan Indoor Trial, Bou finished without finishing without penalties in the qualifying and the semi-final, and received only one point in the final due to exceeding the time allowed in one zone. He was joined on the podium by Sherco’s Albert Cabestany and Gas Gas’ Adam Raga.

The FIM X-Trial World Championship will conclude with the Oviedo Indoor Trial on March 28.
