ROUND 3: ITALY, BORGO MAGGIORE
Just one week later the championship would move to Italy, the home of Beta, and Lampkin was determined more than ever to carry his good form to show to the Italian public. He did not disappoint, taking two more victories to put him clearly at the head of the championship. Marc Colmer was still struggling to find his world championship winning form, much to his frustration. A very competitive rider, Marc would not give up without a fight. The championship was starting to see the talent of Jarvis and Fujinami coming through, along with many more.
TRIAL MAGAZINE 111 Takahisa Fujinami (Honda-JPN): Making the move to Europe from his Japanese homeland in 1996 he was an immediate hit on the world trials scene with his full-throttle approach to the hazards which earned him the nickname ‘Fujigas’. Marc Colomer (Montesa-ESP) : In the heat of the Italian world round the concentration on Marc’s face is so obvious.: One of the new breed of talented young Spanish riders, David had his career cut short after a motorcycle road traffic accident. David Cobas (Gas Gas-ESP) Takahisa Fujinami (Honda-JPN) : Fujigas can still be found as a leading contender in TrialGP over the 20 years since he came to Europe. He won the 2004 Trial World Championship.
