Toni Bou arrives in Comblain-au-Pont (Belgium) series leader with a 39-point advantage over teammate Gabriel Marcelli.

One week after the last event, the TrialGP World Championship continues with a round in Comblain-au-Pont (Belgium). The Repsol Honda Team riders head the standings: Toni Bou is the leader with 157 points and Gabriel Marcelli is second with 118.

The current World Champion has been unstoppable coming into the event in Comblain-au-Pont. The last time the series visited the Belgian town was in the 2022 season, where Bou was the winner of the solitary race. An eighth win of the campaign for the Montesa Cota 4RT rider would increase his lead in the overall standings and bring him closer to the title.

Marcelli arrives in top form for the fifth round of the 2024 season, after his podium on the second day in Germany. He was fourth the last time he competed in Belgium, in 2022. In the overall standings he lies second with 118 points, and with a five-point advantage over the man in third place, Jaime Busto.

The TR1 category riders will only have one day of competition, on Sunday, and so the technical and administrative verifications, in addition to practice, will be carried out on Saturday. The race itself will begin the next day at 9am.

Toni Bou

Championship: 1st

“We are coming off a good run of results, so we are motivated and want to keep doing what we have been doing so far with the team. Belgium is a round that I like a lot, we will see what the zones are like now that we have returned to the stop regulation, but I think a good weekend awaits us where we will give our all. Although we always take things round by round, we have our eye on the title and currently have a good cushion, so it will be important to get a good result to increase that margin."

Gabriel Marcelli

Championship: 2nd

“The terrain in Belgium is quite similar to that in Germany, and the second day went well for me there, so the goal is to stay at the same level. This weekend I hope to be consistent during the two laps and continue with the good feeling we had in the last round. We will look to put in a good performance on Sunday and maintain second position overall in the championship. We are working day by day with the team but always have our eye on the World Championship; Jaime has got very close and we have to raise our level more to stay in the fight for second place.”

Takahisa Fujinami

Team Manager

“We arrive in Belgium with very few days of rest, but with a lot of motivation. The team are doing a great job in 2024. Toni is very strong after the two victories he got in Neunkirchen. The last time he visited this Belgian town in the 2022 season he won, so his goal will be to repeat the result. Gabri has more confidence after the podium on day two in Germany. This weekend he will look to fight for the win and another rostrum, which will be important to maintain second place in the championship.”
