Honda’s Bou Wins Marseille X-Trial – 28th-Straight Win

Eight-time World Champion Toni Bou continues his dominance in the indoor trials series, the Spaniard winning round two of the 2015 FIM X-Trial Championship in Marseille, France.

The victory at round two of six was Bou’s 28th-consecutive victory in the indoor series, reinforcing his trials dominance. With his win, the Repsol Honda pilot extended his lead to 40 points – 13 ahead of the men tied in second place, Sherco’s Albert Cabestany and Gas Gas’ Adam Raga.

The Palais des Sports in Marseille featured a six-zone itinerary, with the final zone running in a reverse direction.

Bou was the only rider to finish the finale without penalty, and also received two “zeros” in zones four and five. This allowed him to take the win before 4,500 fans. Rounding out the podium at Marseille X-Trial was Raga and Cabestany.

Toni Bou says “It was a great victory, with a very hard qualifying, where I could not have any mistake if I wanted to continue. The finale was also very complicated, as I like them. I was even able to take some risks in the last zone for the public to enjoy. I’m very happy with this type of races, which are really worthy to be part of the World Championship: you need to push the limits and today I want to congratulate the organizers.”

The 2015 FIM X-Trial Championship continues next Friday, Feb. 6, in the French town of Pau.
