Disappointed with his result in Andorra, Toni Bou showed his true championship credentials with an easy and commanding victory. He showed a clean pair of heels to his rivals in qualifying, putting him in his prime position at the back of the entry where he simply delivered a performance worthy of his ten world titles. He recorded a clean second lap which told its own story of his dominance. Jaime Busto backed up his first podium visit with a repeat of this, although Adam Raga once again showed his experience to bring the TRRS home in second place. It was a difficult day for Jorge Casales, who had an extra 20-mark penalty added to his score. The marks were given to him as it was reported that one of his team had entered a section in practice which is against the FIM rules.
Franz Kadlec (Gas Gas-GER): Quiet and shy ‘Franzie’ has now moved into the top ten of the TrialGP championship. Toni Bou became the first double winner, taking both TrialGP qualifying and the win in France. Toni Bou (Repsol Honda-ESP): With team-mate Jaime Busto on his case the 10 times outdoor Trial World Champion won his first qualifying of the year.
