Emma Bristow concluded the Ladies’ FIM World Trials Championship by showing exactly why she is was crowned champion.

Competing at L’Hospitalet de l’Infant near Tarragona, Spain, she once again showed her authority on the Sherco with another clear win.

The following day she was proud to be part of the winning team in the Trial Des Nations to finish off a superb season of international trials competitions.

“I am very happy with my form in the 2015 WTC but I would have loved to have made it five wins from five starts,” said Emma, from Alford.

“Maybe I was a little nervous at round one in the Czech Republic, but this was soon under control as I demonstrated in the other four rounds.

“As you can see from my result in the last round in Spain, I am very happy with my performance in the hot conditions at the coastal venue.”

After recording 17 points to finish behind Rebekah Cook in the first round in the Czech Republic, Emma then went on to win the next four rounds.

Cook finished second overall with 54 points, six behind Emma.

Emma also took time to praise her backers, adding: “Once again, this year’s factory-prepared Sherco has been excellent in all conditions, giving me the confidence to push my riding especially in the tough conditions in round three.

“The UK Sherco importers, Malcolm Rathmell Sport, have been there all the way and the product support from my other valued sponsors has been second to none.

“I would like to thank everyone who has supported me, not just this year, but also in the past to let me once again be a very proud World Trials Champion and be part of a winning team representing my country in the Trials Des Nations.

“My next test is the famous Scott Time and Observation Trial, where the treasured Silver Spoon is still missing from my trophy cabinet.”
