2018 TRIAL2 WORLD CHAM­PI­ONSHIP

Trial Magazine - - INTERNATIONAL -

The crowds came to watch the world’s best and, boy, did they get value for money in Trial2. On the open­ing lap cham­pi­onship leader Toby Mar­tyn and Mat­teo Grat­tarola were never fur­ther than a mark apart. They were the only rid­ers in sin­gle fig­ures, with Grat­tarola hold­ing the ad­van­tage on four to Mar­tyn’s five marks lost. On the sec­ond lap they both had three stops as Grat­tarola parted with a sin­gle mark in the fi­nal hazard to make it all even on 20 marks lost each. Young Mar­tyn used a ma­ture head to post a fan­tas­tic clean as the home crowd went wild, as he made it four con­sec­u­tive wins and moved closer to the world ti­tle. Once again it was the four-stroke ma­chines tak­ing the podium as Spain’s Gabrielle Mar­celli and Jack Peace both came good on the sec­ond lap with sin­gle-fig­ure scores.

WORLD CHAM­PI­ONSHIP: 1: Mar­tyn 20; 2: Grat­tarola 20; 3: Mar­celli 22; 4: Jack Peace 29; 5: Gan­dola 23; 6: Dan Peace 34; 7: Moret 36; 8: Chatagno 37; 9: Pe­trella 40; 10: Ped­er­sen 42.

Show­ing a ma­tu­rity way above his young age, Great Bri­tain’s Toby Mar­tyn was in fan­tas­tic form on the last hazard of the day as the crowd made enough noise to wake up York­shire! He was very happy to come away from his ‘home’ event ex­tend­ing his cham­pi­onship lead.
