Toni Bou arrives at the last event with the title won in Madrid last time out. Gabriel Marcelli hopes to compete for the runner-up spot.
This weekend, Vendée in France will host the last event of the 2023 X-Trial World Championship season. The Repsol Honda Trial Team riders will have one final contest this term, and Toni Bou -already confirmed as 34-time champion- will ride alongside teammate Gabriel Marcelli.
After clinching his 34th title last week in Madrid, Toni Bou has high motivation for this weekend. The Repsol Honda Trial Team rider’s goal is to achieve a sixth win of the season in the indoor series, which would be his 78th overall in X-Trial.
Marcelli was very close to achieving victory in Madrid. The Montesa Cota 4RT rider has closed the gap to second-placed Jaime Busto in the overall standings, so he will seek to fight for the runner-up position in the indoor discipline. He has achieved 4 podiums this season, two of them coming in the past two rounds, and will look for his first victory.
The action will begin at 8:00 pm local time in the Vendéspace.
