Spain reaffirmed that it is the best Trial Nation of all time. They took their 17th consecutive title at the Trial des Nations, and fourth consecutive with Toni Bou, Adam Raga and Jaime Busto. Bou has been in 16 and Raga has been in 17 of the last titles. This is Raga’s 18th, which place him first of all-time in the competition. Furthermore, the three topped the first tree positions in the Trial GP World Championship standings. This is Bou’s 15th consecutive Trial GP Championship. He is the winningest motorcycle rider of all time, with 29 individual titles counting the indoor versions. Bou also won the Final round of the season this weekend, in Portugal – followed by Raga and Busto, just as in the Championship.
