TrialGP León 2020 – Rider statements

Toni Bou

Today was a very positive day. It was very hard and we all made quite a few mistakes. It was a tough day not only because of the discomfort I had from my arm, but also because I never quite felt comfortable on the bike.

The race was very close, but we managed to get a very important victory for the championship. We will try to be in the best possible shape for the race in Andorra.”

“Today was a pretty tough day psychologically, as the trial was very difficult and many riders made mistakes -so the positions were changing around a lot. We tried to modify some things on the bike but I don’t think we got it quite right.

On the third lap I was able to clear my mind and improve, but it was not enough. I’m happy with the work that we have done so far, but the results are lacking. I trust that they will come at the next race, in Andorra.”
