SKELTON BACK ON TOP
Harison Skelton (Scorpa) has put himself right back in contention with a Trial 125 class win at Rock & Hop on Sunday. With one round remaining he heads into the final battle in September two points ahead of his season long arch rival, Harry Blackwell (Beta).
Skelton was aided by the fact that Daniel Da Breo (GasGas) pushed Blackwell back into third position at the three lap, twelve section event.
Skelton stamped his mark early on with an opening lap of fourteen, whilst Da Breo was equal with Blackwell, four marks adrift. However, Da Breo upped his game on the second lap and posted the best lap of the day in the class with a loss of twelve, which also earned him the best lap bonus point.
Going into the final round at Geddington on September 24th Skelton has 130 points with Blackwell on 128 which effectively means whoever comes out on top of the two of them will clinch the crown.
