Toni Bou gets his ninth victory in Barcelona
Toni Bou (Repsol Honda) returned to the top step of the podium at the fourth round of the 2015 FIM X-Trial World Championship held in Barcelona, Spain. His latest victory, the third of the season, was a hard fought one with last round winner Adam Raga (Gas Gas) taking the fight right until the final section.
Raga was a worthy runner up, finishing just four marks behind Bou and well clear of Albert Bou now leads Raga in the general standing by thirteen points with two rounds to go.
Bou said after the race, that “It was fantastic to achieve this victory at home. Adam [Raga] put a lot of pressure on me in a very technical race, where it was important not to make mistakes. I’m very happy about how it went. We were very nervous but we achieved a very important victory, because if Adam had won he would have been very close in the championship classification. But everything went well and I must congratulate the team that did a fantastic job”.
The 2015 FIM X-Trial World Championship continues next Saturday in Wiener Neustadt, Austria.
