Mercia Championships 2008 (Final)

Andi Davies defied the odds to steal the Mercia Championships in the last race of the session, it had looked odds on that Tim Werrett would take the crown for the second time in three years after impressive form early in the session at The Wrekin Fell Race and The Long Mynd Valleys, with a solid run at The Roaches it looked like the title was his, Andi was about the only person who could catch him and lady luck must have been on Andi's side, most weekends you will find him playing football in the Welsh League, but Andi's team Welshpool did not play this week , so he had have fresh legs for
