Full of victories for Toni Bou in the X-Trial World Championship. Albert Cabestany takes the runner-up

This past weekend ended the X-Trial World Championship with the seventh and last test held in the French town of Paris-Bercy. On a journey with great difficulty we could see a great Toni Bou (Montesa) who claimed his seventh victory of the season with absolute authority and with the title of the specialty under his arm.

The second position in this case was for a surprising Jeroni Fajardo (Beta) while the podium was closed by Toni Bou's partner, the Japanese Takahisa fujinami (Montesa). And the fight for second place in the Championship? Well, a little further back because neither Albert Cabestany (Sherco) nor Adam Raga (Gas Gas) were too fine, penalizing excessively. In the end, the runner-up went to Albert Cabestany after qualifying for the final while Adam Raga had to settle for third place.

The classification formed by five zones already demonstrated the toughness of the route. The French guest was surprised, Alexandre ferrer (Sherco), who managed to sneak into the semifinal, being the first guest all season to do so. However, his compatriot Loris Gubian (Gas Gas), who should also have passed, suffered a fall that undermined his confidence and would end up eliminating him at the first exchange rate.

Takahisa Fujinami was the last driver to reach the semifinal with two failures (ten penalty points) while Alexandre Ferrer left six. With one less, five, Adam Raga passed and Jeroni Fajardo only penalized one. So much Toni Bou as Albert Cabestany had a perfect qualifying round without any penalty for what they had to make a tiebreaker to find out who would occupy the first position, which would finally be for Toni Bou.

In the semifinal, the pass to the next round was sold very expensive. So much so that Alexandre Ferrer, Adam Raga and Albert cabestany tied with 16 points being Sherco's who went to the final and with it was awarded the World Runner-up. Along with Albert Cabestany were Takahisa Fujinami with 15, Jeroni Fajardo with ten and Toni Bou with only two.

In the final nobody could with Toni Bou that he won the three races in parallel and left only one point. Jeroni Fajardo he was second with 21 and Takahisa fujinami third with 27.
