2018 TRIALGP WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
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! RESULTS: 1: Bou 16; 2: Cabestany 18; 3: Fajardo 20; 4: Busto 24; 5: Raga 29; 6: Casales 46; 7: Dabill 47; 8: Miquel Gelabert 56; 9: Bincaz 56; 10: Price 61.
