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.
