ISLE OF MAN TT


Bou moves towards title number eight

After a slow start to the season Toni Bou – Repsol Honda is now moving towards yet another FIM title as he heads to the French Grand Prix this coming weekend, which will mark the penultimate round of the 2014 FIM Trial World Championship. Bou has now carved out a ten point lead in the general standings with just two rounds remaining after he took back-to-back wins at last weekend's British GP. Realistically only Adam Raga – Gas Gas is in a position to deny Toni taking a record breaking eighth successive FIM Trial World Championship and in doing so surpass the achievements of Jordi Tarres and Dougie Lampkin who both took seven outdoor titles during their own decorated
careers.

So far this season Bou now has five wins compared to Raga's three, so the Gas Gas teamster will need to re-find the form he showed earlier in the year and use his liking of GP's on French soil if he is to reduce the gap on Toni before they head to the final two day event in Spain in September. With the exception of the opening day in Australia, when Takahisa Fujinami – Repsol Montesa won and Bou was second, Adam and Toni have occupied the top two places on every other occasion since in 2014.

Third placed Albert Cabestany – Sherco is a man who would like to bring this top two domination to end and will be desperate to at least be back on the podium in La Mongie, France after he suffered his worst result of the season to date on the second day of the British GP where he fell from the rostrum after his previous run of five top three finishes on the bounce. Jeroni Fajardo – Beta replaced his Spanish compatriot on the box on day two at Nord Vue and doing so closed within nine points of Cabestany, as he looks to regain the number three ranking he earned in 2013 and move up from his current fifth spot in the title race.

Although Fujinami continues to hold fourth in the points table, he also continues to struggle with his injured knee which he aggravated further on the final section on the opening day of the British GP. The Japanese rider will have to fight off the likes of James Dabill – Beta who is sure to arrive at the French Grand Prix in confident mood after his season best fourth place at his home event last Sunday. However Dabill himself will have to keep one eye on Jorge Casale – Gas Gas who now sits just thirteen points behind him in the overall standings. Alexandre Ferrer – Sherco will be hoping he can keep Pol Tarres – Sherco and Matteo Grattarola – Gas Gas at bay on his home patch.

The fight for the FIM Trial World Cup has now developed in to a two-rider battle with Spain's Jaime Busto – Beta and Franz Kadlec – Beta from Germany trading blows on a round by round basis. Although Busto remains on top in the general standings, only by eight points, it was Kadlec who bloodied his main rival's nose last time out. Both riders have been in exceptional form throughout the 2014 campaign, and are set to take their duel to the wire. A podium finish in Britain last Sunday saw Quentin Carles de Caudemberg – Beta climb into third place in the series at the expense of his fellow countryman Steven Coquelin – Gas Gas who disappointingly recorded his second no-score ride of the year on the closing day in the UK.

With the winner of the FIM 125 Trial Cup Gael Chatagno – Sherco now set to ride in the FIM Trial World Cup class at his home GP, this feeder category is very much up for the taking. This should now be a straight three-way fight between Thomas Minta – Sherco from Britain, France's Teo Colairo – Gas Gas and Switzerland's Noe Pretalli – JTG, with perhaps Minta the favourite to record his first ever GP win in France based on his incredible pair of debut results to date.


Chatagno is the new French King

French rider sixteen year old Gael Chatagno – Sherco will arrive at his home Grand Prix this coming weekend fresh from having become the winner of the 2014 FIM 125 Trial Cup, a title he clinched just yesterday afternoon on British soil. Chatagno is sure to receive a very warm welcome as the 2014 FIM Trial World championship descends on the ski resort of La Mongie, France for the penultimate stop on this year's tour. In his first full season Gael has dominated
the FIM 125 Trial Cup class with nine wins from ten starts, which has allowed him to collect his crown with two events still remaining.

Accompanied by his ever-present father, the likeable young French protagonist was pleased to explain his journey from being a child to becoming a champion. "I rode my first bike when I was five years old, like for many people my first bike was a Yamaha PW50. A year later I began to ride competitions but this time on a Gas Gas TXT Boy. Since that point I have made progression, step by step and now I have won my first World title."

"Although my father rode Trial he only rode when he was older and only at regional level, his passion and work is with horses, which is a route I could have followed too. I rode horses when I was younger and took my examinations in this sport, but Trial was always my real passion so that was my chosen path with the full support of my father. I still ride horses, but now only for fun."

"I knew that I could be champion this year, as already I knew the level of the other riders and I was confident that I could match and even beat them. From my results you can see that this was true, but although I am happy with the way I have ridden at World level it has been a slightly different story in the French national championship."

Gael continued. "In the French series I have won two rounds and lost two rounds so now I am only sharing the lead, so that is something I need to change in the closing events to make it a perfect year."

"My only defeat in the FIM 125 Trial Cup was in Italy. There I made a really bad first lap, and then although I made a good recovery on the other laps it was too late to take the victory."

Talking about his relationship with his father, Chatagno said. "I work well with my father, it is important to have a minder and someone at my side who completely understands me in everyway. I know I can be 100% open with him about all the feelings I have both good and bad, as he is my father and only wants the best for me. He has played an important role for me, especially this season."

With the title already won Gael already has a new plan and goal in place. "So this weekend at my home GP I will move up to ride in the FIM Trial World Cup class. I think it is important to check my level so that I can be prepared for next season."

"I hope next year I can be in the top five in this class, but this might be difficult as I do not really know the exact level of the other riders yet. Obviously my absolute goal and dream is to be champion again next year, but also I would be very happy just to be on the podium. I know I must train very hard this winter."

Looking ahead to this weekend the winner of the 2014 FIM 125 Trial Cup stated. "La Mongie is a great place for Trial, an area I know well and one that I am looking forward to riding in front of the many French fans which I am sure will come."


Cabestany slips off the box

Yesterday saw the close of the British Trial GP, which marked round six of the 2014 FIM Trial World Championship. It proved to be a disappointing day for thirty-four year old factory Sherco rider Albert Cabestany as he failed to make it on to the podium for the first time since the round two held in Japan back in April.
 
Whilst Cabestany made a slow start to the series by his own high standards, as he went 6 – 4 – 4 over the opening three days in Australia and Japan, since then it has been his absolute consistency that sees him hold third spot in the general standings with just two Grand Prix events remaining.
 
Albert's seventh place yesterday at the British GP, his lowest placing this season thus far, was much due to his inability to master sections five or eight where he failed on each and every lap on Sunday. The thirty marks accumulated in these two hazards were at the route of his downfall, a situation he will look to rectify swiftly as the veteran campaigner now turns his attentions to this weekend's forthcoming French round.
 
Heading into the penultimate GP, Cabestany has a seven-point advantage over fourth placed Takahisa Fujinami – Repsol Montesa. This is a lead that the Sherco teamster will be hoping to protect as he remains on target to achieve his highest overall ranking since 2006.


"Can't ask for more" – Bou
The Repsol Honda Team rider finished the British Trial with another victory in the second day. Fujinami achieves the fifth place. Toni Bou achieved this Sunday in Nord Vue -Cumbria, Great Britain- his fourth consecutive win in the Trial World Championship, his fifth of the season and the second in the British Grand Prix. The Repsol Honda Team rider confirmed with this result his lead of the World Championship. He leaves with a margin of 10 points over his main rival in the Championship, Adam Raga, 3 races before the end of the season. The rider from Piera started strong this second day of competition in Nord Vue, now without rain and with a better weather, which made riding easier. The Repsol rider dominated again, with an extremely clean performance, with no mistakes, apart from a trajectory mistake in zone 8, that he could not finish in any of the three laps. These three mistakes, together with another in zone 4 during the last lap, completed the 20 penalty points he received. Takahisa Fujinami hit his knee during yesterday's race and today he suffered a lot, especially at the beginning of the race, when he accumulated several mistakes. In the second and third lap, the Japanese rider was able to reduce his points and finish in fifth place. Fujinami keeps the fourth position in the overall standings. After this sixth round of the Trial World Championship, the Repsol Honda Team riders will not have much time to recover, as next weekend they will participate in the French round of the World Championship. The French GP will take place next Sunday, July 27th at the La Mongie ski resort, in the Pyrenees. Toni Bou 1st 20 points
"I am very happy about how this weekend went. I think we can't ask for more than two victories. Now we have a margin of 10 points in the Championship and, although there is a lot of Championship still to go, I think we're in the right path. Now we're going to work hard to be prepared for France and follow this trend. Today I only had a problem in zone 8, with 3 mistakes. I didn't take the right line and I received 15 points. Luckily, the rest of the trial went well and was able to manage my advantage." Takahisa Fujinami 5th 48 points
"At the beginning I was afraid my knee would not be well during this race. I made some mistakes, maybe because I didn't have enough confidence. But as the race went on my knee didn't bother me. It was a pity that I didn't do a good first lap, especially with the mistakes in zones 4 and 7, as I could have improved my position. Nevertheless, despite the final result I'm happy with the work we did. It was very easy to fail".

Bou wins again to take control of the series

Toni Bou – Repsol Honda completed a perfect weekend as he won the second and closing day of the British Trial Grand Prix held at Nord Vue, Penrith. Bou now leads the 2014 FIM Trial World Championship by ten points with two events and three counting days remaining. With sunshine overhead and in drier conditions Toni defeated his nearest title challenger Adam Raga – Gas Gas by fifteen marks on the day. Jeroni Fajardo – Beta made it an all-Spanish podium for the second day in a row as he recorded his equal best result of the season to date.

Having threatened to break into the top three all weekend James Dabill – Beta finally repaid the huge home support he received over both days of competition as he produced a stunning last lap performance to grab fourth spot. This is his best finish in 2014 thus far. Despite suffering the effects of further damage to his already injured knee when he crashed heavily on the final section yesterday, Takahisa Fujinami – Repsol Honda still manage to hold on to fifth position.

Looking much more suited to the drier conditions Spain's Jorge Casales – Gas Gas took a well-earned sixth place as he came home one mark ahead of Albert Cabestany – Sherco who endured his worst finish of the year to date. Cabestany's seventh position brought to an end his run of five podiums in a row, however he still holds third in the overall standings behind Bou and Raga respectively. Matteo Grattarola – Gas Gas, Alexandre Ferrer – Sherco and Michael Brown – Gas Gas filled the last three spots in the top ten in that order.

Sections four, eight and twelve were slightly modified overnight, and although the changes were small they were also significant with fifteen of Bou's total twenty marks being lost in section eight. He failed here on all three occasions today, his other failure coming in the fourth hazard on the last lap. Despite the better weather and drier going, day two of the British GP still proved to be a tough affair for the World Pro riders.

In the FIM Trial World Cup category, today it was Franz Kadlec's – Beta turn to take the top spot. He destroyed his opponents with a total score of five marks. All his losses came on the first lap as he parted with two twos and a single dab, before then staying clean over the closing twenty four sections and two laps. Jaime Busto – Beta still heads the championship table by eight points as he finished second today after having won yesterday. Quentin Carles de Caudemberg – Beta completed today's podium eight marks back from Busto, but only after he survived a three-way tie-break. He, Luke Walker – Sherco and Oriol Noguera – Honda all ended the day on twenty two marks  apiece, but Quentin won the count back thanks to having a combination of most cleans and most ones. 

French rider Gael Chatagno – Sherco is the winner of the 2014 FIM 125 Trial Cup as he made it win number nine overall and his second victory of the weekend. Today Chatagno was in control from the start and pulled eleven marks clear of runner up Thomas Minta – Sherco come the end of lap three. Gael can now not be caught in the general standings even with three counting days remaining, as the title is decided by the best eleven results. Whilst disappointed not to have made it on to the top of the podium at his home GP, Minta has again showed his potential at only his second FIM Trial World Championship event. Tom Hooper – Sherco made it two British riders on the rostrum as he came home third today after having just missed out on a top three finish yesterday. 

The 2014 FIM Trial World Championship will quickly move onto France next weekend, which will bring the recent run of three rounds on the bounce to a close before the traditional summer break.
