Back at Bou's

The Honda leader will try to defend the lead in one of the most demanding tests of the World Championship and where no one has won more than him.


The TrialGP World Championship ends its summer vacation this weekend. And it does so to host the third event of the calendar in Andorra. A "special" scenario for Toni Bou, because in addition to being the country where he resides, there is no other driver who has won more than him there (8). The Honda will try to defend his leadership that he reaffirmed in the last one in France where he opened a gap with his main pursuer in the general, Adam Raga, whom he leads by 10 points.

On this occasion, the already usual test that takes place in Sant Julià de Lòria will cover a different route. 12 zones, which the pilots will have to face on Saturday and Sunday and in which the women will be missing, who will return to competition in Spain (10-12 September) to resume the fight between the leader Bristow and Laia Sanz (separated by three points). The height of the location (1,450 meters) and the heat of August will be one more obstacle that they will have to overcome to take advantage of the World Cup.

"For me, the Andorran race is always special. I go out with the desire to win at home, but as always, you have to be very attentive and focused. This year, with a partially different route than in recent years, it may be very selective. In this month of August we entered a decisive part of the championship with the races in Andorra and Cahors. We will try to fight to continue to maintain first place once these three races have been contested, "says Piera in statements provided by Repsol Honda .

Of the three races held so far, only one has escaped Bou, but not Honda as it fell into the hands of his teammate Fujinami. The Japanese, who is facing his 26th season in the World Cup, looks "prepared" for the test: "I have worked a lot and the team has also prepared to face an important part of the year, with complicated tests, especially this one in Andorra. , where altitude and heat can affect overall performance, both for riders and motorcycles. We are going to fight as always to get the best possible result. "So goes the World Cup 444 444
