GP Italy 17
TrialGP 2017 Round TR8 , Preview 1
Final TrialGP of the season for Repsol Honda Team
This weekend sees the close of the FIM TrialGP World Championship calendar in Italy. Toni Bou arrives as the newly-crowned world champion. Jaime Busto and Takahisa Fujinami, however, have yet to secure their final overall positions.
After a recent spate of headlines in Repsol Honda Team’s communications, Toni Bou, for once, will let team-mates Jaime Busto and Takahisa Fujinami take centre stage. The TrialGP season is drawing to a close and both look to finish in the best possible positions. Pietramurata’s Off Road Park in Trento will host the final event of what has proved to be another highly-successful campaign for Repsol Honda Team.
Jaime Busto will be hoping to end a more-than-positive season by consolidating his current third position in the overall rankings. The young gun led for a large part of the trial in the Czech Republic last weekend. The aim for the talented Basque rider at the Pietramurata Offroad Park will be to stay on the same upward trajectory.
Repsol Honda Team comrade Takahisa Fujinami, likewise, goes in search of the best possible result in the overall standings with the Japanese stalwart a mere two points off fourth place. ‘Fujigas’ has followed a very specific training regime to arrive in Italy on top of his game.
