X-TRIAL WORLD CHAM­PI­ONSHIP PO­SI­TIONS, ROUND 1 OF 8

RE­SULTS: 1: Toni Bou (Rep­sol Honda-ESP) 20; 2: Adam Raga (TRRS-ESP) 15; 3: Jeroni Fa­jardo (Gas Gas-ESP) 12; 4: Jamie Busto (Gas Gas-ESP) 9; 5: Benoit Bin­caz (Beta-FRA) 6; 6: Jorge Casales (Ver­tigo-ESP) 4; 7: James Da­bill (Beta-GBR) 3; 8: Takahisa Fu­ji­nami (Rep­sol Honda-JPN) 2; 9: Dan Peace (Sherco-GBR) 1.

Takahisa Fu­ji­nami (Rep­sol Honda-JPN):Now at the ripe old age of 39 ‘Fu­ji­gas’ is still as en­thu­si­as­tic about his rid­ing as ever be­fore. Based in Spain af­ter the move from Ja­pan many years ago he knows he is en­ter­ing the fi­nal years of a long tri­als ca­reer, but you can never knock the en­thu­si­asm in his full-on at­tack of all the chal­leng­ing haz­ards. James Da­bill (Beta-GBR):As we en­ter 2019 ‘Dib­sta’ is still the undis­puted num­ber one rider from Great Bri­tain on the world cham­pi­onship scene, both in­door and out­door. Re­main­ing on the Ital­ian Beta for 2019 he is not a fixed rider in the FIM X-Trial World Cham­pi­onship but has trained hard for the sea­son, and no doubt will be look­ing at some good re­sults when he is in­vited into the se­ries as a ‘Wild­card’ rider. In round one it was not to be a good re­sult but let’s hope we see more of him in the 2019 FIM X-Trial se­ries.Mak­ing his very first ap­pear­ance on the world stage in the FIM X-Trial World Cham­pi­onship, the el­der of the two Peace broth­ers from Great Bri­tain Dan was also mak­ing his in­ter­na­tional de­but on a new ma­chine. Rid­ing as a ‘Wild­card’ en­trant it’s al­ways very dif­fi­cult to en­gage with the for­mat of the evening’s pro­ceed­ings and, of course, the high level of com­pe­ti­tion. Jorge Casales (Ver­tigo-ESP):One of the nicest tech­ni­cal rid­ers to watch, Jorge is an­other rider where the abil­ity is never in ques­tion. It’s just a case of find­ing out how to nur­ture the tal­ent into good solid re­sults as we have seen in Bu­dapest. Dan Peace (Sherco-GBR):
