Repsol Honda Team rider Toni Bou stormed to victory with a fine performance in Zelhem in the fourth round of the TrialGP World Championship. Team-mate Takahisa Fujinami finished the trial in an excellent fourth position.
The course of this, the fourth round of the highest tier competition, proved to be a demanding one where it was easy to make mistakes in overly-easy sections. The Repsol Honda Team rider took control from the off-set and kept the field in check right until the very end where he earned top spot on the podium. With just one penalty picked up on the first lap – five points for time – and an error-free second lap, the Montesa Cota 4RT rider performed a near-flawless trial. Bou now has a sixteen-point advantage over the nearest second-placed rival at the head of the overall TrialGP world championship leader board.
Bou’s Repsol Honda Team companion, Japanese rider Takahisa Fujinami, took a brilliant fourth place in a trial very little suited to his riding style. The result takes ‘Fujigas’ to 53 points, where he continues to hold third overall place in the world championship overall standings.
Repsol Honda Team get no rest for now, as next weekend, 29th and 30th of June, sees the fifth round of the TrialGP campaign in Belgium.
