2014 British Trials Championship

For the fourth-consecutive round, Repsol Honda’s Toni Bou was victorious in the Trial World Championship.

The Spaniard’s latest feat arrived over the weekend in Nord Vue -Cumbria, Great Britain – for the British Trial Grand Prix. Due to his performance, Bou leads Gas Gas’ Adam Raga by 10 points in the Trials World Championship with three rounds remaining.

Joining Bou on Sunday’s race-two podium was Raga and Beta’s Jeroni Fajardo. On Saturday, Bou was joined on the podium by Raga and Sherco’s Albert Cabestany, respectively.

Bou began Sunday’s competition strong, and unlike Saturday’s race, there was no rain. Bou dominated, making only four mistakes for 20 penalty points.

After this sixth round of the Trial World Championship, the Repsol Honda Team riders will not have much time to recover, as next weekend they will participate in the French round of the World Championship. The French GP will take place next Sunday, July 27, at the La Mongie ski resort, in the Pyrenees.

Speaking after the British Trial GP, Toni Bou says “I am very happy about how this weekend went. I think we can’t ask for more than two victories. Now we have a margin of 10 points in the Championship and, although there is a lot of Championship still to go, I think we’re in the right path. Now we’re going to work hard to be prepared for France and follow this trend.

“Today I only had a problem in zone 8, with 3 mistakes. I didn’t take the right line and I received 15 points. Luckily, the rest of the trial went well and was able to manage my advantage.”
