Toni Bou arrives as the leader of the championship with a 20-point advantage, whilst Gabriel Marcelli is third overall.

The X-Trial World Championship is back after more than six months away, and the Poliesportiu d’Andorra hosts the fifth event of the 2023 season. The last round took place in March in Bordeaux, France, where Toni Bou took his third victory of the season, and his teammate, Gabriel Marcelli, was fifth.

After winning his 33rd title (17 outdoors and 16 indoors), Bou is raring to give his all in Andorra. Last season the Repsol Honda Trial Team rider was second at this round, so this weekend he will look for another victory.

Marcelli has a very good feeling after obtaining third position overall in the TrialGP World Championship. The Montesa Cota 4RT rider has been on the podium two times this season in the Indoor Championship, with two second positions (Barcelona and Pamplona). Last year he was fifth in Andorra, and is targeting the rostrum.

Both Repsol Honda Trial Team riders are at the top of the standings. Bou is the series leader and has a 20-point advantage over nearest rival, Jaime Busto. Marcelli is currently third with 46 points. The Andorran event will begin on Saturday, October 7th at 6pm local time.

Toni Bou

Championship: 1ST

“The wait has been long and we arrive prepared and eager for Andorra. We have had little time to prepare, because we just finished the Outdoor series, but we come with good momentum and our objective is to keep up with the pace of the last rounds at Pamplona and Bordeaux. Andorra is always important for me, so we will try to get the victory.”

Gabriel Marcelli

Championship: 3RD

“After finishing the outdoor season with very good results and having met our objectives, I go into X-Trial with maximum motivation.I'm third overall, one point behind Adam, who is fourth, so it's going to be an interesting end to the season. We will fight for podium positions at the remaining events and we will look for victory to consolidate third place overall.”

Team Manager

“In recent weeks the two riders have been training indoors to prepare for the Andorra event. Toni arrives very strong, and the advantage he has over Jaime gives him more peace of mind, although Andorra is always complicated because it puts extra pressure on him. Gabri is fighting for third position with Adam, and I think the good results in the Outdoor Championship motivate him for the rest of the X-Trial season. The goal, as always, will be to be as high as possible.”
