Motorcycle trials, also known as observed trials, is a non-speed event that's most popular in Europe among other parts of the globe. The event sees riders complete an obstacle course that's built of natural elements or even constructed ones, and requires the competitors to complete the course without touching their feet to the ground. The extremely skilled sport requires a specialised enduro-style bikes that lack seating, have short suspension travel and knobby tyres to maximise grip. The lightweight  bike with a powerful engine also offers ample power to play around with. Motorcycle trials require riders to balance, optimise throttle input and have more control over the machine.

Speaking on the win, Toni Bou, rider, Honda Factory team said, "I am super happy with the weekend here in Italy. Today, after winning the title yesterday, I was able to enjoy a splendid day with some fairly good riding, especially on the third lap which brought out the best of me and I only picked up two marks. Thank you all for this perfect season."

I'm sure that without the injury that has dragged on for the first three rounds of this season, Toni would have been this strong in every race.
