SPAIN'S Toni Bou in on course for an incredible 11th successive FIM World Trials title.

The 30-year-old defeated crowd favourite Takahisa Fujinami and Adam Raga into the minor placings in front of a capacity crowd at the fifth round of the series at Parkwood, Tong.

It was the Repsol Honda rider's record-breaking 15th UK World Trials round victory.

Cookridge's James Dabill was fourth at the Bradford venue, missing out on the rostrum by just two penalties, but also finishing just one mark ahead of Jeroni Fajardo.

Denby Dale's Jack Price was 17th in his first UK round of the World Trials.

"I had a very good first lap, but made mistakes on the second lap, but I stayed clean in the final two sections for the victory," says Bou, who leads the table by 18 points with three rounds to go.

"It's a very important weekend for me. I've extended my lead and will now go the USA with more confidence and will try to win again."

Looking totally at home on the mainly natural sections comprising of imposing rock slabs, huge logs and treacherous tree roots, Bou recorded an opening-lap score of eight marks to lead home hero Dabill (Gas Gas) by eight at the halfway stage.

Fajardo (Vertigo) held third on 17, three marks ahead of fellow Spaniard Raga (TRRS) and five clear of Fujinami (Repsol Honda).

Under a blisteringly hot sun, Bou controlled the trial from the back of the field and, despite posting a second-lap total of 13, including two maximums, he still notched a clear-cut win.

Behind him a battle raged for the remaining podium positions between Dabill, Raga and Fujinami before the Japanese star broke clear with a sensational second lap of just six marks for a total of 28.

Dabill's hopes of a home podium evaporated in the fierce heat, and three maximums on the final lap dropped him to fourth.

Fajardo matched Dabill's score of 32, but lost out on a tie-break as Spanish teenager Jaime Busto (Repsol Honda) failed to take his third podium in a row, ending the day a further eight marks adrift in sixth.

Italy's Matteo Grattarola (Gas Gas) was seventh on 41 before a 13-mark gap back to Spain's Albert Cabestany (Sherco).

Spaniards Jorge Casales (Beta) and Miquel Gelabert (Sherco) tied for ninth on 72, with Casales winning the tie-break.

The remaining rounds are at Kingman (United States) on July 28-30, Sokolov (Czech Republic) on August 9-10 and Arco di Trento (Italy) on September 16-17.
