We are the Trial World Cham­pi­ons

Trial Magazine - - INTERNATIONAL - WORDS AND PIC­TURES: JOHN HULME

We al­ready had the first Trial World Cham­pion of 2017 af­ter five rounds, as the Trial125 Cham­pi­onship con­cluded with Ital­ian Lorenzo Gandola on the Scorpa in the lead. Next to be crowned was Spain’s Marc Colomer, who be­came the first ever Tri­alE World Cham­pion on the new elec­tric Gas Gas. A ju­bi­lant Toni Bou con­tin­ues to raise the bar on the Rep­sol Honda as the Span­ish rider took his 11th TrialGP ti­tle a round early in the Czech Repub­lic. In Trial2 Welsh rider Iwan Roberts on the Beta kept us all on our toes un­til the fi­nal round to take a well-de­served World Cham­pi­onship win. In the TrialGP Women’s class it was the very pop­u­lar Emma Bris­tow who made Great Bri­tain su­per proud, adding an­other cham­pi­onship to her grow­ing col­lec­tion. In the new Trial2 Women it was Spain that cel­e­brated, with the ti­tle go­ing to Neus Mur­cia, mak­ing it a ‘One-Two’ for Beta as she joined Roberts as a Trial World Cham­pion.
