Toni Bou Cleans up in Toulouse

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Monday January 22 2018

In one of the best trials of the season so far, Repsol Honda Team rider Toni Bou finished on the top step of the podium once again.

This is the third victory of the season for Bou, with team-mate Fujinami improving to posted fifth spot.

The Zénith de Toulouse ended up marvelling at the master of trial, Toni Bou. Once more, the Repsol Honda Team rider gave an exhibition against his rivals.

In the third round of the X-Trial World Championship, Bou looked comfortable right from the outset of the competition and scored the best results in each of the three rounds in which he appeared.

In the final he far outclassed his great rival, Adam Raga, claiming the victory with two sections still to tackle.

Bou is now eighteen points clear of Raga in the provisional championship standings.

Takahisa Fujinami, who once again competed as the organization’s wildcard entry, was able to improve upon last week’s result to achieve the goal set for today: qualification for the semi-final.

Once through to the semis, Fujigas managed to outride some riders of a similar level and went on to claim a highly-positive fifth position.

The next event in the FIM X-Trial World Championship will take place in Strasbourg, France, next Saturday, January 26.
