The problem with trials as a career is theres no money .

Recommended Posts

Not sure who is making more money Adam Raga or Toni Bou.Strange that Bou has no deal with Red Bull..... that must be one of the big payers.

Bou was sponsored by Monster Energy a few seasons ago.  Maybe he realized what crap energy drinks are and decided to forgo their money?

That commentator has the most annoying voice I have ever heard. And I've sat opposite Alan Carr on a train.

As far as money goes, I was told how much Honda were paying Bou last time he renewed his contract and nobody else could come within several miles of the sums involved.

Glad he stays with Honda he would really pi$$ everyone off on a Gas Gas.

I seem to remember the best he did BEFORE jumping on the Montesa Honda was 7th in the World Champs?

I think he was 5th in his last year as a beta rider. To be fair he was an up and coming rider at that point and his phenomenal ability was there for all to see, just ask Dougie who singled him out as a future world champ as a kid

Morally, no. I don't think it's my place to blurt a man's salary out on the internet.

Ok Ok I can only speak about the club scene, If someone who rides say a Beta buys a 4rt they always go back;

Maybe it's just a tradition up here.

Lamkin could be counted as one that went back to 2T - If he thought the 4t was better wouldn't he have tossed one into a Vertigo as a key person on the development team ?
