Emma Bristow (Sherco) underlined her status as the greatest female Trial rider of her generation with a third consecutive unbeaten season carrying the thirty-year-old to her seventh TrialGP Women title in a row.
A four-time British Youth Champion, Bristow made her FIM Trial World Championship debut in 2006 when she finished an unlucky-for-some thirteenth and actually dropped a place the following season after contesting just one of the three rounds staged that year.
However, in 2008 she broke into the top-ten with a sixth-placed ranking which she matched in 2009 before her breakthrough season in 2010 when she climbed to fourth and claimed an inaugural podium finish with third at the opening round in France.
From 2011 to 2013 Bristow finished second in the championship – picking up her first day victory in 2013 following her switch to Sherco – before embarking on a title-winning run that continues to this day.
Although pushed hard throughout the 2020 season by the Spanish pairing of Berta Abellan (Vertigo) and Sandra Gomez (TRRS) who shared the podium with her on all six points-scoring days of competition, neither could stop Bristow who now has not lost a World round since the final day of the 2017 campaign.
