The pandemic caused by COVID-19 cut short the 2020 X-Trial championship schedule, bringing an end to the season with five trials having been held. Repsol Honda Team rider Toni Bou, who claimed victory in each of the events, has finally been awarded the official FIM title.
In a ceremony held yesterday, which had been postponed due to the current COVID-19 situation and health authority-imposed restrictions, the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme finally awarded the medals to the top three finishers in the 2020 X-Trial World Championship, with Repsol Honda Team rider Toni Bou, collecting the champion’s trophy and medal.
Bou was the winner of all five points-paying trials in the championship (La Reunion, Vendée, Budapest, Barcelona and Bilbao), where he demonstrated a similar level of performance to that seen in the previous 2020 championship. Bou remains as eager as ever to get back in the saddle in 2021. The multi-time champion received the gold medal from the vice president of the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme, Ignacio Verneda.
