Richard Roberts of Eryri & Andi Davies of Mercia were separated by the closest of margins at the end of six race series, Following the Cardingmill Canter, race five of the series, the two had been separated by 3 percentage points with Andi Davies just in the lead, all was going to be left to the Wrekin Fell Race, the final race in the series.
