Trial2 Incredible Fujinami takes French win. Bou on the podium as always

160620_14

Takahisa Fujinami returns to the top of the podium two years after, with an overwhelming triumph, as teammate Bou had done yesterday. The reigning world champion takes a heavy fall, but comes back to snatch a spot on the rostrum.

Toni Bou’s brother-in-arms at Repsol Honda Team, Takahisa Fujinami today put an end to his teammate’s spell of six consecutive wins in the Outdoor Trial World Championship. Fujinami, the most veteran of the field, was too hot to handle from the start astride the Montesa Cota 4RT. With two sharp first laps, the Japanese rider finished the job with just a single penalty point on the final lap. That raises Takahisa Fujinami’s victory tally to thirty-three wins in the FIM Trial World Championship. He also becomes the fourth different rider to take victory so far this season. The result consolidates the third position overall of ‘Fujigas’ on the leader board.

The trial in Lourdes has been one of the toughest so far this season, even with the overnight modifications to the route. Race authorities marked out three new sections, but overnight rain filled the areas with mud once more, making the balancing something of an ordeal for the competitors.

Toni Bou, nevertheless, comes away from the French trial with a hefty margin of twenty points in the general standings, ahead of nearest second place rival Adam Raga, who finished runner-up on the day. Bou didn’t get off to much of a start today and was further hindered by a heavy fall in section nine with the bike taking a hard knock. The Repsol Honda Team ace failed to regain the momentum, but clawed his way back into the top places, posting a third spot at the end of the day.

Jaime Busto, once again, was a hair’s breadth away from a spot on the rostrum. After looking poised throughout to make it onto the podium, an error-filled final lap saw him equal Bou’s score, who took the third place thanks to the greatest number of zeros achieved in the championship. Busto had to settle for fourth place.

Next outing for the Repsol Honda Team in the FIM Trial World Championship will be in Comblain-au-Pont, Belgium in a one-day competition – the only one-dayer this season – which will take place on Sunday, June 10. Prior to that Toni Bou and Jaime Busto will participate in the third trial whose points count towards the Spanish Trial Championship. This will be held in Pobladura de las Regueras, León.
