After winning the opening four events of the indoor season, Toni Bou now faces another important test in his bid for a further world title as Bilbao hosts X-Trial this Saturday at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre.
Repsol Honda Team rider Toni Bou is all set to tackle the weekend’s challenge in the FIM X-Trial World Championship, the fifth date of the season calendar. The X-Trial in Bilbao kicks off on Saturday at 20:00 at the majestic Bilbao Exhibition Centre.
After scooping first prize at each of the first four events on the X-Trial agenda, Bou will be hoping to maintain the winning streak in Bilbao in an attempt to claim yet another championship title at the earliest date possible. After this event – the second to be held on Spanish soil – there will be just two trials left this season – in Austria and Andorra – before the championship wraps up.
Toni Bou currently holds a twenty-point margin over Adam Raga, second in the overall rankings of the X-Trial World Championship. The competition gets underway at 20:00 with the presentation of the participating riders. The first round will start immediately after, with the second phase scheduled to commence at 21:45 and the final prize-giving podium to be held at approximately 22:40.
