The Palau Sant Jordi prepares for the X-Trial in Barcelona

The 43rd edition of the X-Trial of Barcelona, which will be held at the Palau Sant Jordi next Sunday, February 2nd, is presented as one of the most disputed in history taking into account what happened in the third round of the season held on the 19th in Budapest in which both the victory, As the third place, they ended up being decided by tiebreaker.

Toni Bou (Repsol Honda) arrives at the Barcelona event with the 60 points that have earned him the three victories achieved in the three races held so far. Behind him, Adam Raga (TRRS) is in second place in the provisional Championship standings with 45 points from his three second places. The current World Championship runner-up in the specialty, achieved victory in Barcelona last season beating Bou in the final by a single point difference and the final result was decided in the last section.

Revenge and excitement are served, but along with Bou and Raga, the rest of the riders also have a chance to aim for glory in a historic setting of the FIM X-Trial World Championship. The clearest example of this is that, in the three races held so far, three different riders have occupied the third step of the podium. Jaime Busto (Vertigo ) did it in La Réunion, Jeroni Fajardo (Sherco ) did it in Rennes and the young Gabriel Marcelli (Montesa) did it in Budapest. Marcelli will also compete for the first time in Barcelona.

Meanwhile, Miquel Gelabert (Vertigo), Benoit Bincaz (Beta ) and Jorge Casales (Gas Gas) will fight in Sant Jordi to consolidate their position in the group of favourites for the Championship. The two Spaniards and the Frenchman have amply shown their ability to opt for the first places and the scenario of the X-Trial in Barcelona will push them, even more, to give the best of themselves.
