The second metro round of the series takes place on Sunday, 8 July in Chidlow.

The weather is expected to be a lot sunnier than the last time the series ventured to Chidlow in round three last month.

After three rounds of the series, the leaderboard is starting to take shape, with riders still having ample time to score points towards the overall championship.

Craig Wiggins has rocketed to almost a 50-point lead over Conor Leahy in A men.

Wiggins has won every race bar one in the series this season, with three other members of his family also topping their respective leaderboards.

Simon Billeau has made his way into the top 10 of A men following two strong performances in rounds two and three.

The results are far tighter in A women, with Anna Heitz and Rebecca Mackey sharing the lead of 61 points each.

Corrie Fillmore is on the startlist this weekend and is only seven points behind the leaders. Kristie Moore is leading B women by 10 points over Caroline Crow. Kerri Fennell sits in third place.

James Ismail is leading B men by seven points to Jaiden Lanigan while Col Tierney sits in third place and is also seven points back. Tierney has had a strong start to the season after making the transition from D grade, which he won in 2017.

Nathan Brown is leading C men with Lachlan Loveridge sitting in second place.

Taj Mueller is in third place after carrying half his points up from results in D grade as well as a strong result from round three finishing third in his race moving up a grade.

In D Men, last year’s grade winner Brian Johnson has a one-point lead over Jason Kilgour. Ryan Meldrum is in third place.
