It was a big year for X-Trial that culminates in this country against country showdown. The new rules excluded a big player, and there was initially a lot of controversy, but it gave a handful of young guns a shot at X-Trial and both Bincaz and Gelabert stepped up and had some surprisingly good rides. And new Gas Gas #1 Busto rattled a few cages, even taking a round win.
It was a real mix of the old guard, and the new hot shots. Not as much pressure in this X-Trial des Nations on the individual, but when you are riding for the flag it brings out the best, none the less!
