WORLD TRIAL CHAMPIONSHIP Toni Bou has opened the FIM Trial World Championship with a bang at the Japanese GP. Bou was back in the title fray, on cracking form, in a race that saw the Honda ace mark the difference from the first hazard, although it was a far from easy task as the high-level performances of the adversaries never let the Spaniard relax for a moment. Toni Bou raised his game considerably for the second day at the Motegi circuit allowing him a more laid-back competition. Picking up seven points on the first lap gave the Spaniard a fourteen point advantage over the nearest rival, a cushion which served well on the second lap which saw Bou unexpectedly score a couple of faults. By lap three the Honda maestro was once again displaying excellent form, riding on to yet another triumph. Bou, cruising eight points clear at the top of the leader-board now also holds the record for wins in the Japanese GP having taken top honours on twelve occasions.
