Bou poised to make history

Reigning and already seven times FIM Trial World Champion Toni Bou – Repsol Honda is on the verge of making history as he heads to his home Grand Prix in Spain this coming weekend. Bou will bring with him a seven-point lead over his nearest rival Adam Raga – Gas Gas as he bids to capture an historic and record-breaking eighth successive outdoor title. Toni already has fifteen individual FIM World titles to his name (Eight FIM Indoor / X-Trial World Championships and seven FIM Trial World Championships), an outright record in itself, but Bou can beat the record of seven outdoor World crowns that he currently shares with Jordi Tarres and Dougie Lampkin if he can keep Raga at bay this weekend.

Bou joined the FIM Trial World Championship aged just sixteen years old back in 2003 and instantly made his presence felt as he scored a single point by placing fifteenth at his GP debut in Bangor, Ireland. However his first season was to show him he had much to learn as he only managed to rank thirteenth come the end of his initial campaign. 2004 saw Toni continue to make steady progress as he moved to inside the top ten and to wear the number nine bib for the following year. 2005 proved to be the real break through season for the then Spanish teenager as he claimed his first podium spot in the USA on route to taking fifth place in the final standings.

Aged nineteen years and five months Toni took his maiden Grand Prix win on home soil at the opening round of the 2006 FIM Trial World Championship held at Nigran, Spain. It was the first of two wins that season for Bou, the other coming in Japan and despite him finishing on the podium on three more occasions that season such was the competition that Toni was unable to improve on his previous year's rankings and once again ended the campaign in
fifth spot.

Few expected Bou to move away from his trusted Beta two-stroke, and when the news broke that the then twenty year old had signed to ride the four stroke Repsol Montesa for 2007, shock waves rippled through the sport with the general consensus being that the talented youngster had made a decision that could potentially wreck his promising career. Toni was to immediately silence those doubters with a run of five wins on the bounce to open the 2007 FIM Trial World Championship. In fact Toni was only beaten twice, once in Japan and once in the Czech Republic, on route to becoming the third youngest rider of all time to take the title, with only Gilles Burgat and Bernie Schreiber having achieved the feat at a more tender age.

Since 2007 Bou has been simply unstoppable, with him grabbing the FIM Trial World Championship a further six successive times in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 to set up an historic opportunity to take his tally to eight in front of his home fans this coming weekend. In the twelve years Toni has been a part of the series he has amassed an incredible sixty-two GP victories from his one hundred and fifty starts and only not scored points at two events.

2012 saw Bou record his biggest winning margin as he took the outdoor title by a massive sixty three points from Raga, whilst last season saw the closest title fight during Toni's long reign as he won on the final day of the series to beat his perennial rival Raga by a mere ten points.

Once again it is only Raga who can dethrone Bou, as the Repsol Honda rider bids to become King Toni VIII this coming weekend.


Clean sweep for Gas Gas

It was an historic day for the well known Spanish manufacturer yesterday, when Gas Gas topped the podium in all three classes of the latest round of the 2014 FIM Trial World Championship held in La Mongie, France.
 
In the World Pro division Adam Raga – Gas Gas continued his French love affair as he recorded yet another victory in his country of choice. Raga defeated series leader Toni Bou – Repsol Honda by the merest of margins and in doing so extended his record to ten wins at the French GP, his first coming way back in 2004.
 
In the FIM Trial World Cup category, it was recently turned sixteen year old Arnau Farre – Gas Gas who was very much the surprise winner. The teenager from Spain's previous best result was seventh at the British GP prior to his hard fought win on French soil.
 
Finally in the FIM 125 Trial Cup Teo Colairo – Gas Gas took full advantage of competing in front of his home fans as he recorded his first win of the season to cement his runners up placing in the general standings with one round still remaining.
 
All three winners will now be able to savour their success over the next month before the FIM Trial World Championship resumes after its traditional summer break at the final round in Spain come early September.


Second place for Bou, tied with the winner
In the antepenultimate round of the 2014 Trial World Championship, held today in France, Toni Bou and his main rival for the championship, Adam Raga, finished the race with the same points. The time used to complete the zones decided the winner, which was Raga, with the Repsol Honda Team rider in second place, as he finished the itinerary in a longer time. 
A small mistake in two zones prevented Toni Bou from taking another victory in the Trial World Championship. A too easy race put an end to his winning streak of four consecutive races that put him on the World Championship lead. Two errors in the first and second lap during a low difficulty round were the only mistakes made by the Repsol Honda rider, who in the last lap finished without any penalty. Nevertheless, it took him more time than his rival and that is what decided the winner of the round. His team mate at the Repsol Honda Team, Takahisa Fujinami, had a good start of the race, but was unable to keep the pace in the next two laps. He finished in sixth place and lost a position in the Trial World Championship overall standings. The Japanese is now fifth and will fight in the next two races to recover his place.
The next round for the Repsol Honda Team will be the Spanish Trial Grand Prix, the last double round of the World Championship, which will be held in the town of Arnedo –La Rioja–, next September 6 and 7.
Toni Bou: "I think I didn't do a bad race, but in such an easy trial I was too afraid of making mistakes that might compromise the Championship. The terrain was amazing and they might have set much more difficult zones, but they wanted to make them easy for everyone. It is a pity to lose by so little, but we need to look at the positive side: we still have an advantage of seven points in the Championship, which is very good. We'll try to manage that advantage until the last Grand Prix to try and achieve our objective".
Takahisa Fujinami: "The zones were fairly easy and I made some mistakes that made me gather points again and again. I knew I was making mistakes and had no margin to recover. I tried to finished fifth, but in the end I was sixth when I could have been even further back. I will try to recover fully from my knee injury in August and do my best in the last two races".

Raga steals win to take title fight to the wire
Adam Raga – Gas Gas stole the narrowest of wins at today's French Grand Prix held at the ski resort of La Mongie to take the fight for the 2014 FIM Trial World Championship to the wire. 
Raga defeated current series leader Toni Bou – Repsol Honda by three minutes and eighteen seconds after the arch rivals could not be separated by any means other than the overall time taken by each rider to complete today's event. Adam, having completed the Trial in the faster time. Both Raga and Bou finished on two marks, with the same number of cleans, ones, twos, threes and fives, after three laps of twelve sections out on the mountain course. Bou will now take a seven point advantage to his home GP in just over a month's time, when he will hope to keep Raga at bay as he looks to seal a record breaking eighth straight title. 
Jeroni Fajardo – Beta followed up the third place he scored at the last round in Great Britain with another podium placing, his fourth of the season to date. Fajardo's return to form sees him move into fourth spot and now above Takahisa Fujinami – Repsol Honda in the general standings after the Japanese rider slumped to sixth spot today. Jeroni ended the day on thirteen marks, nine in front of Albert Cabestany – Sherco who with his fourth position failed to make it onto the rostrum for the second time in a row. Jorge Casales – Gas Gas rounded out the top five as he looked far more confident on the dry rocks than he had in the wetter conditions of the two previous events. 
France's highest placed rider in the World Pro class was Alexandre Ferrer – Sherco in seventh, who saw off Pol Tarres – Sherco and Matteo Grattarola – Gas Gas by a good margin as this Spanish / Italian pairing finished eighth and ninth respectively. James Dabill – Beta suffered his equal worst result of the 2014 campaign to date as he placed tenth after he complained throughout the day about his bike lacking power due to the high altitude venue. 
The fierce looking boulder fields on the grassy hillsides above the town where all the majority of the sections were located actually rode far easier than expected, which resulted in low scoring and nervous battles in all three classes. Bou was far from pleased with the lack of severity, and made his thoughts known at the finish. 
Spain's Arnau Farre – Gas Gas was a shock winner in FIM Trial World Cup category today. Having only scored championship points at two previous rounds so far this season, Farre was an unlikely victor in a low scoring and tight fight at the top end of this class. Arnau eventually edged out his compatriot and overall championship leader Jaime Busto – Beta by a single mark after three tense laps of competition. On a day of firsts, Britain's Jack Price – Gas Gas recorded his first podium placing as he came home on seven marks, the same total as Busto, but lost out on a most cleans tie-break having notched up three less faultless rides than his Spanish rival. With Franz Kadlec – Beta finishing down in fifth, having missed out on the win by a mere two marks, Busto now heads the general standings by fourteen points with just his home GP remaining. 
With the 2014 FIM 125 Trial Cup already won by Gael Chatagno – Sherco who rode up in the FIM Trial World Cup class today where he finished seventeenth, the path was clear for a new winner. His French compatriot Teo Colairo – Gas Gas duly stepped up to the challenge to record his victory of the campaign and on home soil. Colairo's victory means he has now also secured the runners up spot in the series with two counting days still to go. Thomas Minta – Sherco made it three-second places from three starts, but was disappointed not to have gone one better today after he was the early leader with a clean opening lap. Switzerland's Noe Pretalli – JTG completed today's podium to seal third spot in the 2014 rankings ahead of the final round in Spain, which will play out in early September.

Raga’s French connection
Last year the French Trial GP marked the finale of the series, however this time around the 2014 FIM Trial World Championship has one more stop before the title can be decided. Isola 2000, a ski resort in the southern Alps, hosted the 2013 French encounter which was an enthralling episode as Adam Raga – Gas Gas won the opening day to make the eventual champion Toni Bou – Repsol Honda wait twenty-four hours before he claimed his latest FIM prize. 
Raga has a good record of results on French soil and will look to exploit this fact today as he looks to close the gap on Bou in the current title fight. Adam's first victory in France was in Valdeblore back in 2004 and was to mark the start of a winning run that has stretched over the past decade. Raga has also won twice in Ales (2005), once in Maisse (2008), on single occasions in Breal Sous Monfort (2011) and La Bresse (2012) and no less than three times at Isola 2000. 
With very similar terrain to Isola 2000, Adam will be hoping that that La Mongie, another French ski resort, becomes another happy hunting ground for the Gas Gas teamster today.
