When combined with his nine outdoor titles, the Repsol Honda rider has 19 X-trial titles, making him the most successful trials rider in history. With this kind of record, it goes without saying that Bou loves to challenge himself – even in the off season.Just ahead of the outdoor FIM Trials Championship, which begins April 9 in Cal Rosal, Spain, Bou took to the slopes aboard his trials bike with studded snow tires.Speaking of the display of pure talent, Repsol Honda says “Bou moved his ability on the trial bike to this slippery terrain and stars in this spectacular video doing slalom down a ski slope, with amazing jumps and an impressive backflip to leave us open-mouthed. Once again, Toni Bou has surpassed himself.”We agree; check out the video above, and it’s easy to realize just why Bou is the most successful trials rider ever.
