Pres­sure, what pres­sure? In what was one of the hottest tri­als con­tested in more re­cent times in Por­tu­gal, the undis­puted num­ber one tri­als rider in the world Toni Bou took the Rep­sol Honda to his 100th Grand Prix win. Look­ing su­per cool and con­fi­dent in the Satur­day qual­i­fy­ing, he car­ried his form into race day to record this mem­o­rable vic­tory. From 200 starts in the FIM World Cham­pi­onship his 50% suc­cess rate speaks for it­self.

The in­tim­i­dat­ing sec­tion ten with its huge steps set out on the hill­side looked im­pos­si­ble to the hu­man eye. Jaime Busto was the first to come the clos­est to pass­ing through the ends cards, and the crowd waited in si­lence to see if Bou could get through it. Not only did he get through it but he put on a dis­play in a real spec­tac­u­lar demon­stra­tion of his skills to record the only clean! RE­SULTS: 1: Bou 9; 2: Fa­jardo 21; 3: Busto 31; 4: Cabestany 39; 5: Raga 62; 6: Da­bill 65; 7: Noguera 67; 8: Fu­ji­nami 74; 9: Casales 77; 10: Miquel Ge­labert 79.
