Three and a half months ago, in the catalan village of Cal Rosal, Toni Bou won his seventh title of champion at Spanish Championship in the top flight and this weekend begins the defense of his crown in the small village of Sant Joan, in the Balearic Islands.

The outdoor season begins with a difficult race, as it was last year. The team's objective has to be to try to improve results, and must have to work for it, not only in the race but also during the entire season. Toni always looking to win everything, but we know it has never loosened major rivals. Also the rules, different from the world championship, is also relevant. Meanwhile, Jaime Busto should clearly improve compared to the first half of last year, since the end of the season he showed his potential by winning a race. But it will not be easy, as always.

The Spanish championship is a different competition; it is important for everyone, but it is in the middle of the indoor season and is a little uncomfortable for those who are fighting for the XTrial championship. But as we cannot change this early start, we must adapt to these complications. Above all, try to have a good race, a good start to the championship and forget the third place last year looking good feeling and also ensure that the work we've done on the bike is good.

Jaime Busto

Last year I had a lot of problems to run. It is a difficult terrain, skating a lot and is very demanding. I'm looking forward more than ever to forget the bad taste of the start of 2015. Goal is to make a good trial and try to be constantly in the battle for the podium.
