What Toby Martyn did last weekend in TrialGP Italy is hard to describe. This was just his first season in the World Championship, and he has caused quite a storm with a great second half of the season. In Pietramurata our young talent wrapped his third Qualifying victory in a row, which meant that he has finished the series as the rider with more wins.
Last TrialGP Czech Republic was a disappointing one for Martyn, as he ended 9th after a difficult second lap. In Italy, he was looking for a better performance, not only to bounce back from last week, but also to give the series the best end possible. And so he did, Martyn made the perfect weekend by taking thetop spot on Sunday too, being this one his first ever victory in the World Championship and bringingVertigo its first win as well.
On the opening lap Martyn left 11 marks, bringing in great potential to take a podium position. His second lap was simply amazing, dropping 4 marks less with all his talent rising to a great extent aboard the Combat Ice Hell. He scored the best punctuation, only Petrella (TRS) with 8 points could keep up with the pace set by Martyn.
After several races ending very close to the desired victory, our rider was finally able to achieve it. This was the reward for all the hard work he has put in throughout the season. We have to consider it a huge success, as Martyn has been able to make it on the box three times this season as a rookie, with two 2nd places in Great Britain and USA plus the victory in Italy. In the end, Martyn has finished 4th in the Championship Standings, living ups and downs during a season that all in all has brought him experience, which was the main goal at the beginning. Really looking forward to what Martyn has in store for next season.
