Bou wins the Ibiza National

bou_ibiza-5Toni Bou has won the second round of the controversial 2011 Spanish Championship, held in Ibiza. After the chaos generated after the disqualification of all TR1 drivers in Castellolí when they exceeded the maximum time allowed as a result of the queues that were generated  from the first zone, the RFME introduced changes in the regulations to seek a solution to this issue.

Finally, the key was that the starting order was reversed, with the TR1 riders taking the start first, and the times of the route themselves were better controlled. The other decisive point has been at the level of the zones, something where the “top” drivers have been complaining for a long time, claiming that the doors with the highest scores should be more selective to give more spectacle and get the best out of our drivers. In Ibiza we have seen a very significant increase in the level, as reflected in the scores, which on other occasions were close to a thousand points and this time they have not exceeded seven hundred.

According to Bou: “This time everything went very well. We found ourselves with a very complicated trial and in which I felt calmer than when the difficulties are less. Currently I feel good and I enjoy this type of high-level event.”

Thus, the rider from Montesa gave a new riding recital, beating Cabestany, second in the race, and Raga, who closed the podium. Cabestany is living a very positive sporting moment, since as he points out many times “being second behind Toni is like being champion”, suggesting that Toni’s abysmal level causes the rest of his rivals to see the second step of the podium almost as a victory.

Given that in the first round no one scored points and that the national championship is a short championship, the drivers should not fall asleep, as every point can be decisive for the championship.

Raga will have to work hard to try to fight to regain the 2009 crown in a contest where he has always achieved great results. Cabestany won’t make it easy for him, as the rider from Tarragona is also eager to do well outdoors.

Finally, we must highlight the role of Pol Tarrés, the future of our Trial, after registering a magnificent fifth place. It is clear that the Tarrés dynasty will continue to give a lot to talk about.
