Toni Bou Plays at The Camp Nou

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Saturday May 12 2018

Repsol Honda Team rider Toni Bou, not only graced Futbol Club Barcelona’s Camp Nou stadium with a visit, but also brought his motorbike along for the ride.

The champion even got a chance to play on the ground that hosts the current La Liga and Copa del Rey winners.

The 23-time Trial World Champion (12 X-Trial and 11 TrialGP) Toni Bou attended the Camp Nou, which over the years has witnessed some of Barcelona Football Club’s most epic battles, championship wins and cup victories.

Bou got to take on a very special challenge, which involved crossing the 7.32 metre crossbar of the goal which Barca’s goalkeepers usually defend… aboard the bike.

Due to the extreme narrowness of the bar, it meant a tough challenge, but the Repsol Honda Team star was up to the occasion, crossing from one end to the other while keeping his balance.

Toni Bou, emerged from the Barca player’s changing room kitted out in the same number 23 shirt colours as the team and then treated the Camp Nou to a special ‘balancing act tour’ of the stadium grandstands.

The current world champion begins the pursuit of his twelfth outdoor world championship next weekend, May 19th and 20th, in Camprodón (Spain), with the dispute of the first event of the 2018 TrialGP World Championship.
