Toni Bou extends his overall TrialGP World Championship lead after a great win in Neunkirchen
The Repsol Honda Trial Team rider finished on the top step of the podium after day one of the TrialGP of Germany held in Neunkirchen
After a six-year absence from the calendar, the TrialGP World Championship was once again back in Germany, this time at a new location: Neunkirchen. There, riders found a tricky and fairly high level course, having to tackle a lot of artificial stone and rock-filled sections, plus wooded areas with plenty of ramps. Section 11 proved to be particularly taxing with the entire field picking up the maximum marks on both laps.
Toni Bou pulled off a resounding triumph at the newly-opened Neunkirchen venue. The Repsol Honda Trial Team rider gave a fine display of his riding prowess, dominating both laps from start to finish, in spite of struggling in section 11. Today’s win sees the Catalan rider continue to edge further away at the top of the overall leaderboard on 94 points, 18 more than his closest rival.
Day one of the TrialGP of Germany was less positive for Gabriel Marcelli. The Repsol Honda Trial Team rider was low on confidence due to the recent infection after a left leg injury, which forced him to take a more prudent ride, especially around the opening lap. Marcelli posted eighth place on the day, although the Galician rider hangs onto seventh place in the overall standings, on 49 points.
The German Trial GP action continues in Neunkirchen tomorrow, kicking off at 09:00.
