Repsol Honda Team ready to go all out in Marseille

After wins in Barcelona and Wiener Neustadt, #tonibou now looks to continue the positive spell of results as he inches ever closer to the first title of the season. Bou will be accompanied on the #marseille mission by Repsol #honda Team riders Takahisa Fujinami and Jaime Busto as the FIM X-Trial World Championship arrives at round three.

Repsol #honda Team come to Marseille’s Palais des Sports on Saturday with their sights set firmly on victory. A good result should be enough to edge #tonibou towards an eleventh indoor title in a championship which looks likely to go to the wire next weekend in the fourth and final date in Nice, France on Friday, March 31st.

Toni Bou has got 2017 off to an excellent start in the trials disputed to date in both X-Trial and the opening of the Spanish Championship last week. The Repsol #honda Team rider will be hoping for a repetition of last year’s win at the same venue.

‘Fujigas’, Toni Bou’s team-mate in the Repsol #honda Team, narrowly missed out on achieving his objective in Austria, where a mistake kept him out of the final. Getting through the qualifying remains the main challenge for Takahisa Fujinami, with the Japanese stalwart aiming for a final podium place. The French #trial certainly offers the chance to do so.

Jaime Busto will be the third Repsol #honda Team rider as he had previously been in Barcelona. The promising young rider is already familiar with Marseille’s Palais des Sports. Busto came close to snatching a place in the final in Barcelona and will once again have to compete with Fujinami to be able to achieve it.
