Repsol Honda Team Look Forward To Spain

Dsc 0063After seven Grand Prix made up of eleven highly competitive races, Toni Bou arrives at the final two championship races with the world title clearly in his sights. The Spanish Trial GP held in Arnedo will be witness as Toni Bou and Adam Raga go head to head, the only two riders mathematically capable of winning. The Montesa Cota 4RT rider and Raga begin the competition with a difference of seven points.


It has once again been the consistency of the Team HRC riders that has proven the difference thus far in a championship, bringing five wins and five runner-up positions, and making Bou the only rider to have permanently featured on the podium.
Should Toni Bou take the world title, he will become the most garlanded rider in outdoor trial, surpassing both Dougie Lampkin and Jordi Tarrés, and their respective seven championship wins. If the indoor championships are taken into account too, Bou will also outstrip legend Giacomo Agostini (15 world titles).
Toni Bou’s Repsol Honda Team team-mate, Takahisa Fujinami, likewise, has a lot to fight for in La Rioja. ‘Fujigas’, lies in fifth overall place on the leader-board, with the chance of climbing to third, although to get the bronze medal he will require an exemplary result, as well as, slip-ups from his most immediate rivals.
Montesa is in the running for a world title too, in Arnedo.  The brand now looks set to take its seventeenth manufacturer’s trophy thanks to the performances of the two Repsol Honda Team riders. The current number of victories in the world championship are 175 in total.


The Spanish GP will be disputed over a three lap circuit of 10 kilometres, each of which will include 12 sections.
