Being totally focused on the job in hand has rewarded the Welsh rider Iwan Roberts with a well-deserved first ever Trial2 World Championship crown. With the guiding hand of his minder, Harry Houghton, the pair went about their business in a very unassuming way taking just two victories, one in Japan and one in the Czech Republic, when it was most needed. This Trial2 class is arguably the most competitive, and despite the threat of the Spanish Armada in Gabrielle Marcelli and Francesc Moret Roberts kept a very level head to take a much deserved title. Marcelli had come back very strong with a double victory in the USA, but a slump in form in the Czech Republic finished his championship dreams for another year. In the final round Great Britain’s Toby Martyn delivered a result he had been threating all season to take a very popular victory. With the Peace brothers doing themselves proud all season it may well be the case that Great Britain can retain this much sought-after crown in 2018.
