BOU CLINCHES 28TH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP | Sport
Repsol Honda Team’s Toni Bou clinches world championship title at the Italian TrialGP
Repsol Honda Team’s Toni Bou has just been crowned world champion on day one of the TrialGP event in Italy. The occasion marked Bou’s 14th outdoor title – adding to his previous 14 indoor titles – taking his overall top-flight championship tally to a whopping 28.
The Repsol Honda Team rider mathematically sealed yet another world championship title, the fourteenth of his career, with the title coming earlier than expected with a win on day one of the Italian event. With the title freshly clinched, Toni Bou once again dominated from start to finish on day two, snatching his sixth win of the season adding even more silverware to an already packed trophy cabinet.
The season began with a battle against the pandemic, which had forced a major overhaul of the scheduled championship calendar and limited the amount of pre-season training that Repsol Honda Team riders were able to do. Things worsened with an arm injury picked up in the opening round of the world championship. Yet, in spite of everything, Toni Bou faced and was able to overcome these adversities, going on to clinch the championship title in Italy.
Adding to the other 14 titles from the ‘indoor’ discipline, Toni now sports no less than 28 world titles since the unstoppable reign began back in 2007. Bou, aboard the Montesa Cota 4RT, reaffirmed the supremacy that has seen Repsol Honda Team dominate in trial competitions over the last fourteen years.
