The Repsol Honda Team rider set a historic landmark and became the most successful rider in the history of this outdoor competition.
The first place achieved today allowed Toni Bou to secure the World Championship title for the eighth time in the outdoor series. With this new success, the rider from Piera becomes the rider with the most titles in this sport, ahead of Dougie Lampkin and Jordi Tarres –both with 7 titles–. Bou secured this new title after showing great consistency, which allowed him to be the only rider that has not been out of the podium in the whole season.
When adding these 8 outdoor titles to the 8 World Championships won by Bou indoor –X-Trial– the Repsol Honda Team rider gathers a total of 16 World Championship titles, all of them consecutive.
