WOTTON-UNDER-EDGE-based motocross rider Adam Harris has won the AMCA 2 Stroke Championship for the second year in a row.
Going into the last round at Canada Heights in Kent, the 21-year-old had a comfortable 168-point lead and needed only 12 points to seal the title.
Race one saw Harris out the gate and first to the corner, where he stayed to the chequered flag to give him the points he required for the title.
Harris was first to the corner and leading the second race when about three laps in he suffered a flat rear tyre and retired.
He came back out in race three and made up for his disappointment with another first place, leading all the way.
Although there was no overall win on the day after winning all the other seven rounds, the Uley Motocross Club member was very pleased to become champion.
All the hard training had finally paid off with the help of his personal trainer, Ben Amingoni, his family, friends and sponsors.
He is taking part in the Weymouth Beach race for the first time later this month and looking forward to having some fun in the sand before returning to training throughout the winter, ready to try to retain the Championship for the third year.
