Trial 2016 Round T7 , Trial 2
The Repsol Honda Team rider scores a tenth win in the Trial World Championship as he nears another world title. Takahisa Fujinami remains in the third spot.
The seventh GP of the trial calendar finished with yet another victory for Toni Bou who once again proved himself to be unreachable. The Montesa Cota 4RT ace soon put two errors on the first lap behind him, picking up ten penalty marks. The Spaniard took the bull by the horns over the next two laps shaking off any serious challenge from adversaries.
The trial on day two turned out to be a far more complicated affair than the previous day with the course a mixture of dried out parts with other mud-filled sections. Bou appeared at ease throughout, clinching a win that moves the rider ever closer to the goal of a tenth outdoor victory that will bring the rider’s overall tally to twenty championship titles. This should occur in the final date of the 2016 championship to be held in Valchiampo.
Takahisa Fujinami had the podium in sight after the first two laps. Any rostrum prospects, however, went up in smoke on an error-filled final lap. Fujigas finished the day fifth, yet hangs on to an overall third position.
Jaime Busto will prefer to put the weekend behind him. The young Repsol rider took a hard knock on his left leg in section two of the first lap. Busto put in some good moves but over-filled the scorecard and leaves the UK far from content.
Repsol Honda Team now gets a well-deserved rest until the 3rd and 4th September when the curtain comes down on the 2016 outdoor trial season. Italy’s Valchiampo will host what promises to be a historical event.
