After recently being crowned World Champion FORCEFIELD sponsored Chris Holder completes an incredible year by lifting the Elite League Riders' Championship title in front of a bumper crowd at Abbey Stadium, Swindon, UK

The World Champion fought off Niels-Kristian Iversen and Chris Harris to top the rostrum having joined Iversen at the top of the score charts on 12 points.

Defending Champion Rory Schlein also made the final, but disaster struck as he first fell on the entrance to turn one after a tangle with Holder before again hitting the deck attempting to pass the eventual winner in the rerun, causing the final to be restarted for a third time.

Swindon man Troy Batchelor was a late withdrawal with flu, although he is hopeful of being ready for the Elite League Grand Final at Poole on Monday.

His absence left Danish duo Hans Andersen and Peter Kildemand as the Robins representatives, but both just missed out on the semi-final with 8 and 7 points respectively.
