Round three of this year’s ACU British Championship would take the riders to Wales and the St David’s trial held near Neath. First round winner Jack Price (JST Gas Gas UK) held off a close challenge from Welsh rider Iwan Roberts (BetaUK) to take a one mark victory and move back to the head of the championship table. His closest rival in the 2017 series, Michael Brown (JST Gas Gas UK) had a disastrous second lap of the twelve hazards before coming back strong on the final lap to take the final step on the podium winning a tie-break decider with Jack Sheppard (Beta-UK). In the Expert class it was very close as Joe Baker (Active Sherco) won on his first appearance in the 2017 series on a tie decider from Richard Sadler (Acklams Beta) as Billy Green took the Youth Class A top spot with an emphatic victory.
