You’d be hard-pushed to list the number of times someone other than the four ‘aliens’ of Trial GPs stood on the podium in recent years.
Unless you’re a nerd about these things you’re excused if you don’t know that Takahisha Fujinami is the most frequent significant other visitor to the podium. Having just started his 21st season in GPs he remains a favourite with fans and riders. Fuji’s ranks among an incredibly select few who have won a GP (Australia in 2014). Jorge Casales popped a third spot in 2015 too.
Dominance is the word for the Spanish quartet of Toni Bou, Adam Raga, Albert Cabestany and Jeroni Fajardo. Bou is, obviously, far and away the man with Raga easily the most consistent behind him. Fajardo and Cabestany share the box spots out more or less evenly.
It’s good to see another name can be added to that select list of podium visitors: Mr James Dabill. No disrespect meant but the British Champion is a serial top ten finisher, six/seventh would be his mean result in GP.
Dabill is a man capable of breaking the top four and at Cal Rosal he put himself and, for the first time Vertigo motorcycles, on the third step.
