The Repsol Honda Team and Toni Bou have struck a deal that extends the current contract (from 2007) by another four years, meaning the rider will remain with HRC until 2018. Demonstrating HRC’s faith that Bou’s long string of victories and his dominance of the Trials scene will continue for many years.

Since Toni first arrived in the Montesa team back in 2007, he’s enjoyed unrivalled success. The Young Spanish rider has picked up an incredible seven consecutive Trial Outdoor World Titles as well as eight consecutive indoor and five Spanish Championship titles.

So far in 2014, Toni, who since last April now forms a part of the HRC structure, has taken victory in two Trial World Championship events and is currently leading the standings. The rider’s Cota 4RT is also presently at the top of the manufacturer’s table, a feat which Montesa (Honda)has managed for the last eight consecutive years.

Shuhei Nakamoto – HRC Executive Vice President:

“We are very pleased to renew our relationship with Toni. He’s shown time and time again that he’s untouchable in the Trials world and I’m sure this will continue for many more years! We wish him good luck this season and are happy to have him remain in the Honda family for another four years”

Toni Bou:

“I’m really pleased. I don’t think that we could have hoped for anything better this year with the integration of the team into the HRC structure. We started to discuss the renewal and came to an agreement right away, so much so that we agreed to lengthen the contract by four years. The team and the bike work really well together. There is nothing else better. So, the only thing that I can do is to continue to battle for the team and for more success, because I really want to win for them and for the fans”
