TrialGP kicked into life this weekend at Tolmezzo in Italy and there was plenty of surprises over two scoring days. Once again 14-time champion Toni Bou (Repsol Honda) remains the pre-season favourite but a broken-leg in early May means he is coming into the season-opener below peak fitness.

A stacked field of talent are aiming to stop the Spaniard from taking his 15th outdoor crown on the trot. His main competitor will be Adam Raga (TRRS) – champion in 2005 and 2006 – who has finished runner-up to Bou an astonishing 14-times in a row.

TrialGP – Day 1 – Tolmezzo, Italy

Defending champion Toni Bou edged out long-time competitor Adam Raga at round one of the 2021 Hertz FIM Trial World Championship. Bou seized control and stretched out a 12-point lead after the first lap but fellow Spaniard Raga produced a near-perfect second circuit to finish a single point behind his long term rival.
