Jaime Busto

Background

Jaime Busto (Gorliz, 4/12/1997) is one of the brightest lights in the Trial discipline. In 2014 he scored an impressive win in the FIM World Cup (former World Junior Championship), winning seven of the thirteen races disputed. In 2012 he had become Youth 125 category champion, a competition in which he had previously debuted in 2011 at thirteen years of age. At a Spanish national level, the Basque rider has clinched just about every possible title in the lower categories, this year even finishing eighth in spite of carrying an injury throughout the latter part of the season.
