The Repsol Honda rider adds his 16th Outdoor Trial World Championship crown in Ponte di Legno (Italy) -32 in total-
MADRID, Sep. 17 (.) –
Spanish trial rider Toni Bou (Repsol Honda) increased his record this Saturday by becoming world champion for the 32nd time, winning his 16th Outdoor Trial World Championship crown in Ponte di Legno (Italy).
Thus, he turns 16 years old, winning the two world titles per season that are at stake. In Italy, Bou lifted his sixteenth TrialGP title after being second in the first race of the Grand Prix, when he only needed a twelfth place to become champion.
In the first batch, he finished tied for fourth with Jorge Busto, the only one who could take this title from him. But in the second round the speculation disappeared and he only gave up one point in the first five sectors, while Busto added nine. He finished the session with a card of 13 to be second.
In this way, Bou left the title finalized on Saturday, without needing the appointment on Sunday to be crowned champion. Thus, he already has 16 outdoor titles, to which must be added another 16 in X-Trial. At 35 years old, Bou has reached 32 consecutive Trial titles since 2007, with a total of 204 victories.
