Holmes has so far won every round in this year’s championship. Displaying incredible skill and pace he has dominated the season and will be the rider to beat in the last event of the year. Fighting for second and third overall in the championship is tough and scores leave it very tight.

Once the points have been dropped for each riders worst two races, it puts Justin Reid in second place. Reid has looked strong all season and will be competing in the final round with the likes of Luke Cooper, David Cowan, Connor Smith and Carl Bunce for second and third positions overall in the championship.
