ROUND 3: ITALY, BORGO MAGGIORE

Trial Magazine - - FLASHBACK -

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.
