With seven wins out of seven events, Toni Bou puts an end to the 2019 TrialGP World Championship. The Repsol Honda Team rider claimed top honours in the Spanish TrialGP held in the Ciudad Deportiva of La Nucía, where Takahisa Fujinami took the third step of the podium.
The final trial of the season was by no means easy. The steep areas and the lack of time to conclude the first lap proved a hindrance for riders. Champion Toni Bou finished the day accruing the least marks, thus achieving a 14th consecutive victory in trial world championships and a 112th in elite competition. With the title already sealed in the previous outing in France, Bou has completed a full-house of wins in all the trials disputed this season.
Takahisa Fujinami fought hard for a place on the podium in La Nucía with his endeavours finally paying dividends. It was a tricky first lap for the Japanese rider, struggling on the ramps in the sections, yet Fujinami rode a fine second lap to secure the third spot on the day. The season thus concludes for “Fujigas” with a formidable third overall position.
Next stop for the Repsol Honda Team duo is scheduled for next week in the Balearic town of Ibiza, where the Trial des Nations takes place, with Bou and Fujinami representing their respective countries.
