The rain that threat­ened never came to this high-al­ti­tude event in the ski re­sort town of Auron in the French Alps. Sur­rounded by the scenic moun­tains the sun shone on Toni Bou once again as he out­pointed his fel­low Span­ish ri­vals Jeroni Fa­jardo and Jaime Busto. In the early part of the event Fa­jardo was in fan­tas­tic form, and Bou knew he had a fight on his hands if he was once again go­ing to be vic­to­ri­ous. The eleven-time out­door world tri­als cham­pion led the way on the pre­dom­i­nantly dry rocks with a low score of 13 to Fa­jardo’s 16 but, as we have seen on so many other oc­ca­sions, Bou has the skill to al­ways raise his game and this is what he did on the sec­ond lap with the only sin­gle-fig­ure score of seven marks lost mak­ing it his 101st world round win. RE­SULTS: 1: Bou 22; 2: Fa­jardo 29; 3: Busto 39; 4: Raga 41; 5: Fu­ji­nami 50; 6: Cabestany 57; 7: Miquel Ge­labert 60; 8: Fer­rer 65; 9: Noguera 69; 10: Price 72.
