The Toni Bou Show con­tin­ues, with no cur­rent threat to his reign as the ‘King of Tri­als’. He is con­stantly pushed to the lim­its of his rid­ing by his arch ri­val Adam Raga, but when it’s needed he can al­ways raise his game. The two days of dom­i­na­tion in the USA put his cham­pi­onship as­pi­ra­tions on track, and de­spite Raga tak­ing the win in the Czech Repub­lic you have to agree that Bou has once again dom­i­nated the 2017 cham­pi­onship. His Rep­sol Honda team-mate and fel­low Span­ish rider Jaime Butso is now a firm fix­ture on the podium, and no doubt he will take a Trial World Cham­pi­onship one day; it’s just a case of wait­ing for it to hap­pen! With the younger riders now start­ing to dip their toes into the top ten it bodes well for the fu­ture of the TrialGP pre­mier class for 2018 as both Al­bert Cabestany and French rider Loris Gu­bian said good­bye to the cham­pi­onship at the fi­nal round in Italy.
