Toni Bou and Gabriel Marcelli take the top spots in Switzerland to lead the series.

After twelve years off the X-Trial World Championship calendar, Geneva in Switzerland hosted the fourth round of the 2024 season. The Repsol Honda Team riders took victory with Toni Bou, and teammate Gabriel Marcelli was second.

Bou started the first lap with some uncharacteristic mistakes that dropped him to second position, fighting with his teammate for the victory. On lap two, Bou took a step up and snatched the top spot, going straight into the final. In that, the reigning world champion accrued 22 points from the 6 zones, earning a fourth consecutive victory of the season.

Marcelli’s first experience in Switzerland saw him ride at a high level from the first lap, taking the lead with 8 penalty points. On the second lap, Marcelli remained in the fight for the podium positions, finally placing second and going directly into the final along with Toni Bou and Toby Martin. After completing the six action zones with 26 penalty points, he finished second.

The Repsol Honda Team riders have a perfect podium record so far in the 2024 season. Bou goes into X-Trial season break leader with 86 points. Marcelli recovers second position, with 55 points. The next event for the X-Trial World Championship will be on October 5th in Andorra la Vella.

Toni Bou

Championship: 1st

“I'm happy with today's victory, even though my riding was not the best. We made quite a few mistakes, especially at the end of the second lap, when we had a heavy fall. In the final, I wasn't completely comfortable due to the knock I took, so now it's time to recover. The next round is in Japan. We start the outdoor World Championship at Honda's home race and we have to give our 100%. The team is doing a great job and we have to continue in the same vein.”

Gabriel Marcelli

Championship: 2nd

“The Trial itself was tough, especially in the final, but it went quite well for me. On the first lap I rode at a very good level and I managed to get that extra point in the standings. On the second lap I rode quite well and in the final the same, although it was hard. I'm happy with the points we took and with us regaining second position overall. We are having a good season and I want to thank the team for the work they are doing.”

Takahisa Fujinami

Team Manager

“First of all, I want to congratulate the three Montesa riders, since they have worked hard these last few weeks. We have achieved a great result and I am very happy. Gabri had a very good first lap and having the two fighting for victory is very positive for us. After the event in Switzerland, Toni has extended his lead and Gabri has regained second position overall, which was the objective, so we go into the break very motivated. We are already focused on our next challenge, the start of the TrialGP World Championship in Japan."
