Toni Bou takes command on the opening day of the German Trial GP

Repsol Honda Team rider Toni Bou has clinched an important victory in the third round of the FIM Trial World Championship held in Gefrees, Germany.

Toni Bou increases the gap further at the head of the general rankings with a tightly-fought battle in Gefrees. There was virtually nothing separating Bou and arch-rival Adam Raga until the very last section of the trial, in spite of the champion having sneaked into the lead at section four of the third and final lap. Toni managed to cling on to the mere two-point advantage as the race went to the wire.

The twelve-section, three-lap trial in Gefrees, proved to be a tricky event thanks to a week of rain in the run-up to the race. It was still raining over the first few hours of the day as the riders headed out. With the sections all wet, there was little traction and competitors were forced to put in more physical work to get over the obstacles.

If the conditions were unfavourable for the riders, Toni Bou had it worse; the Repsol Honda Team rider is still trying to shake off an injured right shoulder tendon. Bou laboured his way through the opening sections before being forced to remove the strapping securing the injury to free up movements. A sudden move in the second section brought back the sharp pain. After consecutive faults in sections two and three, the Spaniard was forced to put the strapping back on. The relief was immediate and soon it was back to business as usual as Bou clawed back the dropped points. The first day of the German GP ended with Toni having accumulated twenty points and now lies eight points clear at the top of the leaderboard.

Bou’s Repsol Honda Team companion Takahisa Fujinami missed out on a podium place after a hard blow in the leg left him struggling to find the strength and resulted in a string of errors. By the final lap, ‘Fujigas’ had recuperated and was able to defend the thirteen points which led to a final fourth overall position.

TRIAL: 1ST  CHAMPIONSHIP: 1ST

I’m tired but very pleased with the way that the race turned out. It was a bad decision to take the tape off my shoulder this morning because in the second section I really suffered. The fault in section three worsened the pain. Luckily, I was able to carry on and ride with a minimum amount of strength. After, it was a very tight trial but I just managed to win it and I’m pleased with the twenty points that I have added in the general standings.

TRIAL: 4TH  CHAMPIONSHIP: 4TH

It was a complicated day: on the first lap I did well in the difficult sections, but I made mistakes in the easier ones. On the second lap I hit my leg which made me pick up a couple of faults in the following sections. Maybe I thought about it too much and lost concentration, but luckily the last lap went much better for me.

TRIAL: 6TH  CHAMPIONSHIP: 5TH

Today I went through one of those rough spells that no-one likes to go through. I couldn’t find the rhythm and maybe I went into some of the sections too fast and I picked up faults. Too many mistakes, especially on the first two laps. Tomorrow I will try and push myself more and take it at a more measured pace and hope that the results go better than today.
