Bou moves towards tenth title
Monday July 18, 2016

TrialGP – In a much higher scoring event than yesterday, Toni Bou – Repsol Honda still reigned supreme as he notched his tenth victory of the 2016 FIM Trial World Championship to move yet another step closer to taking a record extending and historic tenth successive outdoor title. With the sun shining overhead Bou again ran out an easy winner on the second day of the British Trial GP held at Tong, with his winning advantage being twenty marks over Adam Raga – TRS.

Back-to-back wins for Bristow
Monday July 18, 2016

Emma Bristow – Sherco made it back-to-back wins over the opening weekend of the 2016 FIM Women’s Trial World Championship after she again took the victory on the second and closing day of her home Grand Prix held at Tong, Great Britain. As had been the case just twenty-four hours earlier Bristow again took control of the event from the first of the two laps of twelve sections as she completed her first tour for the loss of only six marks, despite parting with an early three in section three. Emma maintained her form throughout the second lap and only added a further three marks to her tally to end the day on nine, six marks better than her nearest challenger.  

Bou simply sublime in Great Britain

TrialGP – With a winning margin of thirty-one marks, the performance by Toni Bou – Repsol Honda on the opening day of the British Grand Prix that marked round seven of the 2016 FIM Trial World Championship was simply sublime. Now almost certain of a straight tenth outdoor title, Bou made light work of the mainly man-made course at Tong losing just four marks over the entire Trial including a clean last lap.
