QUAL­I­FY­ING

Trial Magazine - - INTERNATIO­NAL -

It was all change in Italy at round one for the 2019 qual­i­fi­ca­tion process, as the rid­ers would make two sep­a­rate laps of the cho­sen hazard with no practice lap as in 2018. The start­ing or­der for the Q1 timed lap is de­cided by a bal­lot, after which the finishing or­der in this qual­i­fier de­ter­mines the start­ing or­der for Q2. The two lap times would then be put to­gether and the best av­er­age time, also tak­ing into ac­count any marks lost on ob­ser­va­tion, would de­cide the start­ing or­ders with the quick­est av­er­age time de­ter­min­ing the last start­ing po­si­tion in the trial.

2019 The Fastest TRI­ALGP: No re­sult recorded for Italy, start or­der was by bal­lot. Toni Bou (Rep­sol Honda-ESP) 2; Adam Raga (TRRS-ESP) 1. TRIAL2: TOBY Mar­tyn (Beta-GBR) 2; Mat­teo Grat­tarola (Honda-ITA) 1; Aniol Ge­labert (Scorpa-FRA) 1. TRIAL125: Kieran Touly (Scorpa-FRA) 2; Pau Martinez (Ver­tigo-ESP) 1; Alex Canales (Gas Gas-ESP) 1.

Italy

Held in the dark un­der flood­lights in wet con­di­tions the Tri­alGP class turned into a farce as the rid­ers all failed to record a time on both laps, forc­ing the FIM to use the bal­lot to de­cide the start time where Benoit Bin­caz drew last. Great Bri­tain’s Toby Mar­tyn did a ster­ling job on the Beta keep­ing the chas­ing four-strokes of Grat­tarola and Mar­celli at bay as Spain’s Pau Martinez put in a quick time.

Ja­pan

Con­sis­tent rain prior to and dur­ing qual­i­fy­ing would need some in­tense con­cen­tra­tion, and it was Adam Raga who parted with no marks and the fastest time to head the field. In Trial2 it was very close as Mat­teo Grat­tarola just took the win and in Trial125 cham­pi­onship leader Kieran Touly was the man with the speed.

Nether­lands

It was a very warm day that welcomed Toni Bou’s smooth ride to his first pole po­si­tion of the sea­son in front of a packed grand­stand in the sand in the Nether­lands. In Trial2 Aniol Ge­labert was very much on form, keep­ing the four-strokes at bay, and in Trial125 Kieran Touly made his cham­pi­onship in­ten­tions clear.

Bel­gium

Un­der the in­tense heat the crowd in the market square on the man-made hazard at Comblain Au Point wit­nessed Toni Bou at his best. In Trial2 a con­fi­dent, calm-rid­ing Toby Mar­tyn went quick­est. The clos­est class was the Trial125 as Alex Canales from Spain put the Gas Gas on pole po­si­tion for the first time.
