This coming weekend sees the fifth round of the TrialGP season to be held in Gouveia, Portugal with Repsol Honda Team looking to continue their fine spell of results.

Parque Senhora dos Verdes, smack in the middle of the Sierra da Estrela, will this weekend (13th and 14th July) host round five of the TrialGP World Championship calendar with Repsol Honda Team fielding their factory rider duo of Toni Bou and Takahisa Fujinami.

Runaway leader Toni Bou, on 100 points compared to the 81 of the closest second-place rival, arrives keen to extend the margin at the top of the overall rankings even further. Bou is running a tally of eleven wins on the trot in TrialGP (from the Andorran TrialGP on 17th July 2018) and thirteen in all the combined 2019 events (X-Trial championship, TrialGP championship and the Spanish championship). Last year the same venue witnessed Bou take a 100th triumph in the elite class.

Bou’s Repsol Honda Team comrade Takahisa Fujinami, arrives in Portugal intent on displaying the same fine level of form that he has shown since the opening date of the season. Fujigas’ consistency has been rewarded with fourth overall spot in the championship standings, just a single point off third place.

The competition takes place in Parque Senhora dos Verdes, in Gouveia. The tiny village, which previously hosted the world championship in 2004 and 2018, is located some 150 kilometres to the south-east of the nation’s second largest city Porto. The nine most recent editions of TrialGP in Portugal, which have been held since 2005, have been won by Montesa riders: Toni Bou (2008, 2009, 2010, 2015 and 2018), Takahisa Fujinami (2006 and 2010) and Dougie Lampkin (2005).

Compared to the most recent edition, this year will feature a brand new route, with new sections in a river next to the park. Another of this year’s novelties will be the qualifying section to be held on Saturday evening (17:30) in the centre of the village. The first rider to take the start at the main event on Sunday will do so at 10:00 local time with the prize-giving podium scheduled for 16:45.

STANDINGS: 1ST  POINTS: 100

Over the months of June and July we will dispute six consecutive races, but we hope that everything goes well and then we can take a well-deserved break. In the trials still remaining it will be important not to make mistakes and battle hard to win race by race without thinking what could come up in the next trail. I think we are very clear about the work involved: keep up the good dynamics that we have had so far this year; our goal is to get wins and the more we get the better.

Takahisa Fujinami

STANDINGS: 4TH  POINTS: 66

My goal in Portugal is clear: to be fighting for the podium. In Belgium I did not have any references from any of my rivals as I started from the front and I finished just off third place. I think that if I don’t repeat the same mistakes, I can make it. I’m in a good shape and you have to take advantage of it. We have worked a lot with the team and we are ready for the trial that we believe will be a complicated one.

Repsol Honda Team rider Toni Bou, with a masterful ride, secured victory today in Comblain-au-Pont in the fifth round of the TrialGP World Championship. Takahisa Fujinami, likewise rode an excellent trial to narrowly miss out on a repeat of last year’s podium by a single point.

It turned out to be a gruelling course for the fourth round of the top-tier trial competition. The sweltering heat proved to be the day’s main protagonist forcing both riders and minders alike to take on constant refreshment to hydrate themselves and avoid wilting before the two fifteen-section laps had been completed.

Toni Bou suffered on the hard terrain, the climbs and the slippery slabs of rock. There was barely a difference between the champ and Jeroni Fajardo throughout the entire trial, until the competition reached the final section of the last lap, where the Repsol Honda Team star was able to seal his fifth season victory. Bou hasn’t been off the top step of the podium since last year’s trial in Andorra. The win stretches the incumbent champion’s lead at the head of the overall standings and gives him a nineteen-point cushion over the nearest second place rival.

Japanese rider Takahisa Fujinami pulled off a spectacular fourth place, a mere point away from a place on the rostrum. Today “Fujigas” was the first top-flight rider to open the track this morning but nevertheless rode a noteworthy trial. Fujinami holds fourth spot in the overall rankings.

The summary should be short: eliminate the repetition in our list, even if the author lists the same items. The summary should be significantly shorter than the original. Hope to create a review; therefore, it is not necessary to include every repetition of a point or each auxiliary part. The summary should be independent: You are not asked to follow the author of the text you are writing about. On the contrary, we must make our voice heard throughout the resume. It is not enough to mention the author, it is not such easy like when you need someone to write my essay here; instead, we use our words to express our understanding of what we have read. In the end, the resume is based on our interpretation of the points or ideas of the writer. However, care should be taken not to create any distortion or distortion when entering comments or criticism. Draw a text: break into two sections on a common topic, and list the main points of support for each section. Write a summary of one or two sentences for each section. Formulate a single sentence to summarize the entire text by reading the author’s sentences as a guide. Write a paragraph (or more): start with a general resume and then summarize the sentences for each section. Rewrite and reorganize the text to make our writing clear and concise to eliminate relatively small or duplicate items. Let’s make sure that the resume includes all the key points of the text. The final version should be complete and consistent.

The next trial world championship outing will take place in Portugal on 13th and 14th July, although prior to that Toni Bou has a date with the Spanish national championship in Pobladura de las Regueras, León.

TRIAL: 1ST  STANDINGS: 1ST

Today was a very tough race. It was very easy to fail but very difficult to recover. On the first lap we had Fajardo ahead who had a great trial, but on the second I was able to come back and put up with the pressure well. I was able to take the win in the final section in front of the spectators, which was very nice. Looking ahead to the championship, today has been a very important day to take things one step further. Congratulates also to Fujinami, who today also had a great ride opening the track.

Takahisa Fujinami

TRIAL: 4TH  STANDINGS: 4TH

Today I fought a lot. When I opened the sections I did not know that so many riders were picking up so many penalties, so I was not aware of my position. On the second lap I went all out for it and finally I came very close to the podium. A pity but considering that I had opened the track, I am very happy with how I rode today. It was tough because of the heat, not only for me, but for the minders, the mechanics… so thank you very much to the whole team. We are motivated to continue.

Miquel Cirera

Team Manager

Today was a complicated trial. Toni had more difficulty than usual, but fought to the end as we are used to seeing and managed to win the event. Fujinami today was spectacular too. Opening the sections is not an easy task and he finished just off the podium, so very well done. I want to congratulate the whole team. Today they have all worked very hard and in very harsh conditions, either because of the terrain or because of the heat. We will continue to battle on towards the next date in two weeks time in Portugal.

Repsol Honda Team rider Toni Bou stormed to victory with a fine performance in Zelhem in the fourth round of the TrialGP World Championship. Team-mate Takahisa Fujinami finished the trial in an excellent fourth position.

The course of this, the fourth round of the highest tier competition, proved to be a demanding one where it was easy to make mistakes in overly-easy sections. The Repsol Honda Team rider took control from the off-set and kept the field in check right until the very end where he earned top spot on the podium. With just one penalty picked up on the first lap – five points for time – and an error-free second lap, the Montesa Cota 4RT rider performed a near-flawless trial. Bou now has a sixteen-point advantage over the nearest second-placed rival at the head of the overall TrialGP world championship leader board.

Bou’s Repsol Honda Team companion, Japanese rider Takahisa Fujinami, took a brilliant fourth place in a trial very little suited to his riding style. The result takes ‘Fujigas’ to 53 points, where he continues to hold third overall place in the world championship overall standings. The Repsol Honda Team get no rest for now, as next weekend, 29th and 30th of June, sees the fifth round of the TrialGP campaign in Belgium.

Today we were very clear that it was a day of endurance. At the start of the race, a small mistake would have put you behind, so we knew that it would be tough. We did as well as we could for such a trial. It was a pity about the time penalty on the first lap, since I had a good second lap with zero points. I am in a good moment of riding and physical fitness, so I am very happy. Also thanks to the team for all their work.

TRIAL: 4TH  STANDINGS: 3RD

The terrain and the sections that I found today were really difficult for me. There were many steps, many triples… and everything was quite dry. I started badly, but afterwards I recovered a lot. I am very happy with my riding today. This fourth position is very important for the general standings and we will try to get back on the podium next week, in Belgium.

Miquel Cirera

Team Manager

Today Toni had a great trial. It is never easy to win and especially today, which was so easy, which made everything very complicated. And for Fujinami it was like a victory, since it was a trial that, theoretically, was hard work because it was like an indoor event, so this fourth position for him is like a podium. They have been very good results towards the overall championship result. Next week we are in Belgium.

Toni Bou and Takahisa Fujinami, leader and third place in the TrialGP World Championship, will this weekend dispute the Dutch TrialGP in Zelhem, some 40 years after the sole occasion that the top flight competition was held in the Netherlands.

The Trial World Championship has a date with history this weekend in Zelhem. On the one and only occasion that the Trial World Championship was held in Holland, none of the riders active today had even been born. This coming Saturday and Sunday, the Dutch TrialGP hosts a world championship event for the first time in four decades, after the previous one which took place in Norg and was won by Ulf Karlson aboard a Montesa.

Zelhem is a small town of 11,000 inhabitants in the northeast of Holland, about 150 kilometres from the capital of the country, Amsterdam. The trial will consist of two fifteen-section laps on a course of just one kilometre.

You should try writing in English every day. Redundancy (ie performing the same action over and over) will help you learn new writing skills. Initially, writing in English can be difficult, but writing a little every day will start to get easier. To make sure you don’t miss a day of writing, use a system to monitor your progress. You could write on the calendar, or use a site or application. Furthermore, it may be helpful to choose a particular time of day to sit at your desk and write, as we will see in our next council. Find the Moment and the Best Place to Write. We all have a better time of the day to write. For example, your mind may be more clear in the morning. Or maybe you are night owls (night owls, in English) and reach your creative peak at midnight. To find out which time of day is best for you, try writing at different times. Once you find out when to write, you’ll also need to figure out where to do it. You will probably have difficulty writing in particularly loud places. In that case, try writing in a quiet place, like a library. Or, you may need some background noise, in which case we suggest you try writing in a fairly busy café. Experiment and find out which is the right place for you. Choose a specific place to keep your writings. Look for a notebook to keep everything you write. Collecting everything in one place, you will be able to consult what you have written previously and check your progress. Moreover, you can easily scroll through all your writings to check if you always make the same mistakes. If you love writing on the computer, you might consider working for https://australianessay.site to keep your writings together. It is a website (as well as a mobile application) that helps you organize your life. You can keep everything you write. Furthermore, you can keep an eye on your time table thanks to a special calendar. Another fun way to keep everything you write together is to open a blog. You can easily open one on Blogger or on WordPress, and you can make it both private (so you can only see it) and public (so that others can read it and comment on it).

Repsol Honda Team arrive in Holland on cracking form after the double podiums picked up in Japan. Toni Bou is firmly established at the top of the championship leader board after wins in the three trials disputed so far (Italy and two in Japan) and is confident of extending the positive streak of results. The Repsol Honda Team rider has 60 points, 11 more than the nearest second place rider in the overall standings, Adam Raga. Third in the table lies Takahisa Fujinami. Bou’s Repsol Honda Team partner has amassed 40 points and has a five-point margin over the fourth placed rival.

The Dutch TrialGP qualification will take place on Saturday 22nd at 15:30 with the main event on Sunday 23rd kicking off at 09:00. The prize-giving podium is scheduled for 15:45 p.m.

STANDINGS: 1st POINTS: 60

After the Japanese Grand Prix, where everything went really well, we now return to Europe to compete in Holland, where we have never been before. We hope that the trial will have a world championship level and I hope we can get a good result. We are very happy and highly-motivated too and we will look to continue the successes achieved so far.

Takahisa Fujinami

STANDINGS: 3rd POINTS: 40

I am very enthusiastic and motivated to get back on the bike for these two consecutive world championship trials. The results in Japan have really charged my batteries up and I’ll try to keep on this track. In Holland, as it’s a new place, nobody has an advantage, so hopefully I’ll be able to get a good result.

Perfect. Without errors. Toni Bou managed to finish the second day of the TrialGP of Japan in the most impeccable manner: without any penalty whatsoever at the Twin Ring Motegi. Repsol Honda Team companion Takahisa Fujinami occupied the third step of the podium.

Toni Bou had predicted that the Japanese event would have very low scores, but few could have predicted a perfect performance of the type that Bou pulled off. The Repsol Honda Team rider picked up no penalizations whatsoever in any of the sections, finishing off the two laps of the Motegi circuit on 0 points. It is the second time in his career that he has been able to achieve this, the previous occasion being in Portugal in 2010. This is the third consecutive victory for Toni Bou so far in this season’s TrialGP World Championship and he continues to head the general standings with 60 points, ahead of the 49-point score of the nearest second-placed rival.

Japanese rider Takahisa Fujinami, continues to perform well and today he amply demonstrated his form in several key moments of the trail, even holding second provisional place at one point. In the end, ‘Fujigas’ was back on the third step of the rostrum to the delight of the home fans. These two third place positions, allow the veteran to climb up to third spot in the general championship rankings.

The next TrialGP World Championship competition is scheduled for the Netherlands on June 22th and 23th. The trial will hold its qualifying day on Saturday and will be a single-day event.

Today we had a perfect trial in a perfect place. I’m very happy with my riding today. Having done this perfect trial here in Japan was really special. Thank all the team who have done a great job. We have prepared a lot for these first events and the results have been incredible, so I can’t be happier this weekend.

TRIAL: 3RD  STANDINGS: 3RD

I am super happy to have been able to get on the podium on both days of racing here in Japan. Today the trial was very complicated because the zones were very simple and it was very easy to make a mistake. I didn’t start the second lap very well and there was a moment that I became a bit demoralized but with the help of the team and the fans, we battled on until the end.

Miquel Cirera

Team Manager

Today Toni Bou was extraordinary. He repeated something that is really hard to achieve: finishing without any penalty at all. In addition, he did it in Japan, the home of Honda. This is a pleasure for the whole team and also for the brand. The third place that Fujinami has clinched is very important for all too. Congratulations to the whole team for the work done this weekend. The season is very long and we will be working step by step, race by race to achieve our final goal.
