2018 TRIAL2 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
The fast-emerging talent of Great Britain’s Toby Martyn shone through with a well calculated ride in a very low-scoring event. On the opening lap it was section nine where the marks were lost as Martyn parted with a one, followed by a two on section ten making up his first lap score of three marks lost. The young Spanish talent of Aniol Gelabert was hot on Martyn’s heels as he lost just two marks on his opening lap to take a small lead. On the second lap in a true test of nerves Martyn, Gabrielle Marcelli and Jack Peace all replicated their first lap scores to make up the top three at the close of the second lap. For young Gelabert the chance of victory disappeared with a stop — and the five marks it comes with — on section nine to deny him his first Trial2 victory. Series leader Matteo Grattarola had a disaster of a day to come home in sixth position. RESULTS: 1: Martyn 6; 2: Marcelli 8; 3: Jack Peace 8; 4: Dan Peace 9; 5: Aniol Gelabert 11; 6: Grattarola 14; 7: Petrella 18; 8: Moret 18; 9: Haga 21; 10: Poli 31.
