The Repsol Honda rider is the overall leader in the X-Trial World Championship, and can seal the title this weekend. Marcelli is third with a 9-point advantage over his rival for the spot.
This weekend, Madrid will host the penultimate round of the 2023 X-Trial World Championship season. Toni Bou and Gabriel Marcelli are currently first and third overall, respectively, and both will seek to put on a good show at Repsol’s home round.
Bou is the series leader with a 25-point advantage over his nearest rival, Jaime Busto. The Repsol Honda Trial Team rider has claimed four victories from the five races held so far, and this weekend he will have the first opportunity to become X-Trial World Champion for the seventeenth time.
Marcelli arrives in Madrid very motivated after a run of several consecutive podiums in the previous rounds. After an impressive performance in Andorra, the goal for the Montesa Cota 4RT rider will be to get on the rostrum again and fight for his first victory in the X-Trial World Championship.
The action will begin on Saturday at 6:30pm local time, at the Madrid Arena.
