The world champion 2007 can be decided in Minorca’s Indoor Trial.
The seventh round of the FITWC07 will take place next Saturday the 24th in the Pabellón Menorca and the fight for the title could be decisive. Repsol Montesa-HRC’s rider Toni Bou has this weekend the opportunity of becoming the world champion of 2007 if he finishes better than Adam Raga.
The leader of the Championship has a great advantage of ten points more than Raga. Furthermore, the rider of Gas Gas, has to fight more than ever before for the victory and hope for a misfortune of Bou in both coming rounds. Moreover Cabestany’s victory in Milan has complicated things for Adam, and now he’s only two points ahead Sherco’s rider and his second place in the general standings is in danger.
The cancellation of the GP of Argentina, which was going to be celebrated on March the 10th has reduced the calendar to only eight rounds. So, the Balearic venue will be the penultimate of the season, and therefore it’ll have more prominence for defining the final result of the championship.
The Indoor Trial of Minorca will start at 7.30pm local time (GMT+1) and will consist of seven sections and a double lane race. The starting order for the fixed riders will be by ballot.
Together with the three Spanish stars will ride Jeroni Fajardo, Dougie Lampkin, Takahisa Fujinami and the Polish Tadeusz Blazusiak, who reappeared last week in Milan after recovering himself of a knee injury and who’ll ride his fourth round of the season. The British Dougie Lampkin will try to forget the bad results of past races and try to get another podium as the one in Marseille. With the same aim arrives in Minorca Fujinami, who dropped out of the final lap in the past two races just for one penalty point.
