29/09/17 - The 2017 season came to a close with the finale held at the Spanish coastal town of Baiona, hosting what was one of the best events of the year. The unique peninsula location with the castle standing high above the sea fronted course proved to be the real jewel in the crown as the 2017 FIM Trial des Nations attracted the biggest crowd of the tour.
The three-day event, starting with qualification for both Women and Men – this being the first time TDN has included this new start selection process – on Friday afternoon had a real festival feel about it, with the riders thoroughly enjoying the end of season team competition.
Spain’s Women gave the sizeable audience plenty to cheer about on Saturday as they set the winning tone for the weekend ahead of the Men’s Trail on Sunday. The female Spanish trio prevented Great Britain continuing their victorious run before they then handed the baton over to their much favoured male counterparts who were relishing the chance to notch up yet another TDN win, especially with this edition being on home soil.
Bou and co did not fail to deliver and absolutely destroyed the opposition in the World Trophy class, whilst Australia won a nail biting encounter over the USA in the International category.
The Highlights show incorporates all the best moments from all three days of action, as the TDN brought the 2017 tour to an end properly.
