His most recent victory was during the inaugural race of the 2014 season in Australia. Fujinami is the current active rider with highest number of podiums in the Trial World Championship: 150. "Fujigas" is ridingthe Cota 4RT, currently leading the provisional Manufacturer Championship standing, which Montesa (Honda) has taken consecutively for the past eight years.

Shuhei Nakamoto, HRC Vice-President:

"We are very happy that Takahisa Fujinami will continue riding for the Repsol Honda Team. As most of you already know Takahisa has been competing in the Trial World Championship for the last 19 years and is the only Japanese rider that has been a constant contender for the Championship. He is a unique competitor, he has great ability and a will of iron: so far this season he has won the first day in Australia and ended in third position after the first day of the Japanese Grand Prix while suffering from a knee injury. He will continue riding for us and for the all the motorcycle racing fans next season"

Takahisa Fujinami:

"I am very happy to be able to make the announcement that I will be part of the Repsol Honda Team one more season. Since I was 16 years old I have had a contract with Honda and with them I will compete my 20th year in the World Championship. It is for this reason that I am very proud of being able to continue with Honda. Renewing a contract at this day and time is very important to me and is, without a doubt one more reason that motivates me to compete. I am also very happy to hear that Toni Bou has been renewed; he is the team’s number one and a good friend. This is a great team, the best in the Championship."
