Repsol #honda Team rider #tonibou clinched victory today in Vendée, France in the opening round of the 2018 FIM X-Trial World Championship. The rider beat Jaime Busto in the final.

With barely a few weeks passed since the end of the 2017 campaign, the 2018 competition calendar got underway with the first #trial of the FIM X-Trial World Championship in the French town of Vendée, where Repsol #honda Team ace #tonibou rode to an overwhelming triumph, dominating every phase of the event.

In the first qualifying round, Bou laid down the gauntlet, collecting just a single penalty point in the six-section course, as the eleven-times champion sauntered through the relatively low-difficulty obstacles. The second phase of the competition, held in the Vendespace Sports Complex, saw #tonibou included in a group with James Dabill and Benoît Bincaz, with only the top-finisher going through to the final. The Montesa Cota 4RT rider replicated the near perfect first lap to comfortably seal a place in the final.

The final turned out to be a face-off with former team-mate Jaime Busto, whose six points were no match for the incumbent champion who picked up a solitary penalty mark en route to victory.

The next round of the 2018 X-Trial World Championship will be held on Saturday January 13th in Montpellier, France.
