Still strug­gling with the ef­fects of his back in­jury, Toni Bou will class this win as one of the most im­por­tant in his ca­reer. He car­ried the mo­men­tum from the quick­est time in qual­i­fy­ing into the trial. On a scorch­ing hot day and with so many sim­i­lar haz­ards on the steep rugged hill­side above An­dorra, any one of four rid­ers could have taken this win, with the big­gest loss to Busto, in fourth.

Al­bert Cabestany proved just how good he still is with sec­ond po­si­tion, with Jeroni Fa­jardo com­ing third. Af­ter the first lap it was a slen­der sin­gle mark that sep­a­rated Bou from Busto in sec­ond po­si­tion. As Fa­jardo fived the fi­nal haz­ard Bou had to make a rapid re­pair to a split rear tyre to se­cure the vic­tory and he ex­e­cuted the clean ride with per­fect pre­ci­sion; he was very happy!
