ISLAND trials rider Becky Cook came out on top after a dramatic last round to become British champion, adding it to the European title she won last week.
Becky had everything to fight for going into the final round in Yorkshire.
With the championship still to be decided between Wightlink-sponsored Top Trial Team Beta UK rider, Becky, and Ossa rider, Emma Bristow, it was a tense battle for the title as the winner was set to take all.
With the sections on the easy side, it was to be close between the championship rivals. Becky started well cleaning sections one and two, three would see her clean until the final turn when a large rock came dislodged underneath her front wheel, rolled and threw Becky off the bike.
Staying positive, Becky continued to ride well, loosing just two single dabs on sections four and six.
Her second lap saw her lose two more single dabs on four and seven. Going into the final lap, Becky was trailing Emma by four marks. Once again, bad luck struck, as her foot caught on some loose section tape, which was hanging low in the stream, resulting in another five.
Becky cleaned the rest of the lap though to complete the trial on 14 marks.
Emma lost nine that lap to put them equal on 14 at the finish providing a nail-biting finale to the championship.
To the relief and delight of Becky and the team, she took the win on most cleans and with it her eighth British title.
After her dramatic win Becky said: "It’s been a brilliant fight for the championship this year, it’s a great feeling to win my eighth title and my first for Beta.
"Thanks to my minder, Craig Talbot, John Lampkin and Beta UK and everyone at Top Trial Team. It’s been a fantastic few weeks taking the European title and now the British.
"I’m riding well and am confident I can challenge for the World championship title over the next two weeks."
