2016 marked the most com­pet­i­tive year yet for Show­down spa­ces with 12 rid­ers math­e­mat­i­cally able to se­cure a top six spot un­til last week­end at Oulton Park. Here’s a quick look at who’ll be fight­ing to be best of the rest…

Michael Laverty 7th Ð 168 points

Af­ter win­ning two races this sea­son, Laverty not be­ing in the Show­down is per­haps the big­gest shock. Nev­er­the­less, he’ll be keen to prove what he could have done if he’d earned a top six spot.

Peter Hick­man 8th Ð 162 points

With both his team-mates in the Show­down, Hick­man will be gut­ted to have missed out, but he’s shown he can beat them al­ready this sea­son with his re­mark­able round one win.

Richard Cooper 9th Ð 157 points

An­other race win­ner not to make the Show­down, Cooper will be out to get his hands on the Rid­ers’ Cup af­ter look­ing a dead cert to take it in 2015 be­fore a crash at the fi­nal round ruled him out of con­tention.
