The introduction of the non-stop rules may have been controversial but there’s no arguing that it’s made the FIM Trial World Championship 2013 an even more thrilling spectacle! Right from the outset of the 2013 season, at Motegi in Japan, the world’s best put their hearts, minds, and bodies into becoming the Champion – no quarter was asked and none given. Could Takahisa Fujinami (Montesa) secure an emotional win on home ground to set the tempo for a frantic, fast-paced year? Takahisa’s team mate Toni Bou, unstoppable under the old rules, proved superbly able to master the new continuous movement regulations, but so did more than a few of his rivals. In the USA Adam Raga (Gas Gas) was on imperious form showing his controlled yet aggressive style to its full. Sherrco’s Albert Cabestany kept the pressure up throughout the season as did Matteo Grattarola (Gas Gas) and the British Beta pairing of James Dabill and Jack Challoner. Through rounds in Andorra, Spain, and Czech Republic, Italy, the UK, and France, the action heats up as the season progresses to its conclusion. The non-stop rule may have sped things up but it certainly hasn’t diminished the skills on display. Sit back and enjoy nearly four hours of hardcore, high-speed trials action in stunning quality with the Official Review of the FIM World Trials Championship 2013.
