Toni Bou achieved this Saturday his seventh X-Trial World Championship —indoor—, all of them consecutive, after winning the fourth and second-to-last round held in Bielefeld (Germany). These seven Indoor titles, together with the six he has up to now in the Outdoor World Championship, confirm Bou as the most successful rider in the history of this motorcycling speciality.
His statistics in the X-Trial World Championship are amazing: 35 wins —the last 20 consecutive—, from a total of 55 rounds. And all this at only 26 years-old.
In Bielefeld, the Repsol rider dominated both the semi-final, which he finished with zero points —the same result he had in the qualifying—, and the finale, where he received only one point for exceeding the time. Bou took part in the last phase of this round with the title already secured as Albert Cabestany was eliminated in the semi-final.
His team mate in the Repsol Montesa Honda team, Takahisa Fujinami, was not able to repeat podium result as he did in the last two rounds. Three consecutive failures in the semi-final prevented him from getting to the last part of the round.
The FIM X-Trial World Championship will come to an end next April 12 in Nice (France).
