Toni Bou has once again been crowned the TrialGP World Champion in the thrilling final competition held in Vertolaye, France. This was not the only achievement, as Emma Bristow and Billy Green also claimed the 2023 world titles in the TrialGP Women and Trial2 categories, respectively.
The talented Galfer rider, Toni Bou, representing Repsol Honda, achieved an impressive double victory in France, amassing a total of 271 points and securing 10 wins in the seven rounds contested throughout the season. These accomplishments allowed him to renew his TrialGP World Championship title in 2023. With an astonishing record of 17 outdoor titles since his debut with the Repsol Honda team in 2007, Toni Bou continues to expand his impressive list of achievements, totaling 33 titles in his career, spanning both X-Trial and TrialGP. In this season, the Montesa Cota 4RT, equipped with Galfer’s “Disc Wave®” fixed rotors and Trial Top G1805 brake pads, demonstrated its superiority over its competitors.
The dominance of Galfer riders in the World Trial Championship was so remarkable that the top four positions in TrialGP were occupied by riders from this Spanish brand: Jaime Busto (Gas Gas) as the runner-up, Gabriel Marcelli (Repsol Honda) in third place, and Matteo Grattarola (Beta) in fourth position.
In the women’s category, British rider Emma Bristow and her Sherco also claimed the world title for the ninth time in her illustrious sports career. Emma Bristow secured two victories in France, surpassing Berta Abellán (Scorpa), and was crowned the 2023 world champion.
Lastly, in the Trial2 category, young British rider Billy Green (Scorpa) was crowned champion after an exciting and closely contested competition in the final event.
All Galfer riders relied on “Disc Wave®” W and WLLG brake discs, as well as semi-metallic Trial Top G1805 brake pads, to achieve their impressive performances.
The discipline of Trial will continue with the X-Trial competition, with the next event scheduled in Andorra on October 7th.
