Spain reign again

Led by newly crowned 2014 FIM Trial World Champion Toni Bou – Repsol Honda who was more than ably supported by Adam Raga – Gas Gas, Albert Cabestany – Sherco and Jeroni Fajardo – Beta, Spain romped to a clear and convincing victory at yesterday's 2014 FIM Trial des Nations held in Andorra.
 
It was in the fifth edition of this event hosted in Bertrix, Belgium in 1989 that Spain first won this marvellous and prestigious trophy despite the wet and muddy conditions that prevailed on that historic day. Although they were to surrender the team prize back to France the following year, twelve months later the Spanish were to begin to take control FIM Trial des Nations. From 1991 to 1996 inclusive Spain were simply unbeatable.
 
From 1997 through to 2003 inclusive only Great Britain could disrupt the Spanish supremacy, as they defeated their southern European rival on four separate occasions during this period.
 
However since 2004 right through to and including 2014 no other country has been able to stop Spain, on what is now an eleven year run. In the thirty years that the FIM Trial des Nations has existed the Spanish team has won it a record twenty one times, and few would doubt them adding to this success again next year.


The Spanish make it eleven in a row
The outcome of the 2014 FIM Trial des Nations held today in Andorra was never really in doubt with their line up of Toni Bou – Repsol Honda, Adam Raga – Gas Gas, Albert Cabestany – Sherco and Jeroni Fajardo – Beta, Spain were always going to be far too strong to stop. Harnessing the might of the current top four riders in the World, the Spanish squad marched easily to its eleventh straight win in this season-ending team competition and took their outright tally to twenty one victories since the first FIM Trials des Nations was held in Poland back in 1984. Confirming their absolute supremacy, Spain's winning margin on the day was eighty-two marks over Great Britain. Great Britain's quartet of James Dabill – Beta, Michael Brown – Gas Gas Alexz Wigg – Gas Gas and Jack Sheppard – Beta once again occupied the runners up spot for the sixth time in a row. Coincidentally, the last time that the British team failed to follow Spain home was in Andorra back in 2008 when the Japanese contingent took a surprise second place. Whilst Dabill and the other British riders put up a brave fight on the eighteen steep and dusty sections that were ridden twice throughout the day, in truth they had no answer to Spain's might and instead had to concentrate on keeping the French at bay. Loris Gubian – Gas Gas, Alexandre Ferrer – Sherco, Steven Coquelin - Gas Gas and Quentin Carles de Caudemberg – Beta did a good job of flying the flag strongly for France as they maintained the pressure on the British team, closing out the opening lap just nine marks behind their European cross-channel neighbours. The French rode an improved second lap to hold to third place and to take their place on the rostrum for the second year in a row alongside Spain and Great Britain respectively. Italy's Matteo Poli – Ossa, Francesco Iolitta – Montesa, Matteo Grattarola – Gas Gas and Luca Cotone – Sherco finished forty-six marks behind their French rivals in fourth position and truthfully were never in the hunt for a podium place as they have been in previous years. Norway rounded out the World Championship Trophy class with Kristian Sorensen Ole – Sherco, Norum Ivar – Ossa, Pedersen Hakon - Ossa and Ib Andersen – Beta all putting in fighting performances to end their day in fifth spot. In the International Trophy Group, Germany were once again the winners with this year's victory following on from the win they achieved twelve months ago in France. Jan Junklewitz – Sherco, Franz Kadlec – Beta, Micro Kammel – JTG and Jan Peters - Beta had to come from behind as they trailed Sweden by two marks after the first lap. The German team was outstanding on its second visit to the dry hazards losing just nine marks for the entire lap to overhaul and beat their Swedish counterparts by seven marks come the close of play. Sweden's Eddie Karlsson – Montesa, Marcus Eliasson – Beta, Emil Gyllenhammar – Gas Gas and Anton Lorensson – Beta equalled their previous best result as runners up having occupied this position four times in the past. As in 2013 the United States of America beat their overseas rivals Australia to the final podium place in the International Trophy Group, this time by the comfortable margin of eighteen marks. With Australia in fourth spot Ireland rounded out this year's top five in the subplot in what was undoubtedly another highly success edition of the FIM Trials des Nations that celebrated thirty years since it was first organised in Poland back in 1984. Today saw the close of the current Trial season, however the action will resume early next year with the 2015 FIM X-Trial World Championship kicking off the new year.

Joanne Coles makes a winning return
Joanne Coles – Gas Gas made a winning return to the World of Women's Trial when she played her part in Great Britain taking victory in the 2014 FIM Women's Trial des Nations held in Andorra. Now twenty-two years old, Cole effectively retired from the sport back at the end of the 2010 season whilst ranked third in the World. The loss of the then eighteen year old from the sport was a big and sad one as many in the paddock tipped the British girl to be a potential champion of the future. Cole was controversially selected to represent her county in last year's FIM Women's Trial des Nations, but more than justified her place in the national team as she finished on the rostrum at the final round of the 2013 FIM Women's Trial World Championship held in France the day before the main team competition. Now training and working as a plumber Joanne's inclusion in this year's British squad over more regular riders once again caused a certain a stir with her having hardly ridden since last year's team event. However once again Coles proved her pedigree and was back to near her best despite her lack of bike time as she collected an FIM gold medal alongside her teammates Emma Bristow – Sherco and Rebekah Cook – Beta for the second year running.

Great Britain steals narrow win over Spain
In what is the closest ever finish in the FIM Women's Trial des Nations Great Britain represented by Emma Bristow - Sherco, Rebekah Cook – Beta and Joanne Coles – Gas Gas stole the narrowest of wins over the Spanish team of Sandra Gomez – Ossa, Mireia Conde – Beta and Elisabet Solera – Gas Gas. After two tense laps of fifteen sections Great Britain and Spain finished tied on fifteen marks apiece with the best two scores in each hazard determining their eventual totals. With both teams waiting eagerly at the finish, after an anxious couple of minutes the large electronic scoreboard revealed that Great Britain had triumphed over Spain by a single clean in the tie-break process, the winners having recorded seventy four cleans compared to the seventy three notched up by the Spanish trio. The German line up of Ina Wilde – Gas Gas, Theresa Bauml – Ossa and Sarah Bauer – Sherco were more than worthy of taking the final podium place and, although they were unable to match the leading two nations on the closing lap, they were very much in contention for a potential surprise win following the first lap. The dry and dusty sections on the steep hillsides above the town delivered an enthralling battle during what was a relatively low scoring competition. When the punch cards were changed at the halfway point Spain and Great Britain were locked on eleven marks apiece with Germany only two marks further back. Recognising how tight the battle was, Spain rode ahead of their rivals on the second lap perhaps knowing that overall time may become a factor if the teams could not be split any other way. The Spanish and British squads matched each other mark for mark through the closing fifteen sections whilst the German's assault faltered slightly. With nothing to separate Spain or Great Britain the winner was finally on a decider in the reigning champion's favour giving Great Britain their second win in a row. Germany's eleven mark loss on lap two was still enough for them to secure third spot. The French team of Marilyne Journet – Beta, Sandrine Juffet – JTG and Pauline Masanes – Gas Gas took a solid fourth position just seven marks back from Germany. Their lap totals of twenty and thirteen marks respectively proved sufficient to defeat their Italian rivals by a margin of just five marks. Italy represented by Sara Trentini – Ossa, Elisa Peretti – Gas Gas and Martina Balducchi – Scorpa matched the fifth place they achieved last year to round out today's top five. Norway with its relative young line up slotted into sixth spot on fifty one marks to finish well clear of the first of the overseas teams which on this occasion was the Australian squad who secured seventh place. Team USA came home in eighth, twelve marks back from the Aussies but twenty three marks the better of their southern hemisphere neighbours, New Zealand who ended the day in ninth. Host nation Andorra completed the top ten with Japan, Ireland and Denmark being the last three teams in the classification. With the 2014 Women's Trial des Nations now over, the small principality will turn its attentions to the men's competition with the 2014 FIM Trial des Nations set to take place over a similar course, but with revised sections for the two classes who will do battle on the mountains in the morning.
