2018 TRI­ALGP WORLD CHAM­PI­ONSHIP

Trial Magazine - - INTERNATIONAL -

Chas­ing that 100th Grand Prix vic­tory, it would re­main elu­sive for Toni Bou in Ja­pan as he was to­tally over­shad­owed by the wins of the Gas Gas team-mates Jeroni Fa­jardo on day one and Jaime Busto on day two. Af­ter a bad qual­i­fy­ing Fa­jardo was the first man away on day one, but he rode ev­ery haz­ard clean to record a clean open­ing lap on his way to only his sec­ond ca­reer vic­tory.

On day two Bou was rid­ing like a man on a mis­sion but so was his younger ri­val Jaime Busto. Sec­tion thir­teen would de­cide the win­ner, and it was un­lucky for Bou as he parted with the two five-mark penal­ties com­pared to Busto’s two. For the young Gas Gas rider it was ela­tion though as it se­cured his maiden Tri­alGP vic­tory.
