Barcelona, Spain (May 12, 2018) – Repsol Honda Team rider Toni Bou, not only graced Futbol Club Barcelona’s Camp Nou stadium with a visit, but also brought his motorbike along for the ride. The champion even got a chance to play on the ground that hosts the current La Liga and Copa del Rey winners.

The 23-time Trial World Champion (12 X-Trial and 11 TrialGP) Toni Bou attended the Camp Nou, which over the years has witnessed some of Barcelona Football Club’s most epic battles, championship wins and cup victories.

Bou got to take on a very special challenge, which involved crossing the 7.32 meter crossbar of the goal which Barca’s goalkeepers usually defend… aboard the bike. Due to the extreme narrowness of the bar, it meant a tough challenge, but the Repsol Honda Team star was up to the occasion, crossing from one end to the other while keeping his balance.

Toni Bou, emerged from the Barca player’s changing room kitted out in the same number 23 shirt colors as the team and then treated the Camp Nou to a special ‘balancing act tour’ of the stadium grandstands.

For me, as a Barcelona fan, it was an honor to get to ride my bike in the Camp Nou. It was a very special challenge to cross the goal, which Ter Stegen defends, on the bike. It was really difficult, as it moved about a lot and was tricky to balance upon, but even so, we achieved the challenge. We have had a great time, as did the football club. We always enjoy Barcelona so much for the great football.
