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.

Toni Bou


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


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.

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.
