Aussie star Jack Holder has won the New South Wales State Championship after getting the better of former world champion brother Chris in the final at Kurri Kurri on Saturday.

Both Holder siblings raced their way straight into the A Final on 14 points apiece with Jack winning their head-to-head in the heats and only Josh Pickering beating him over five rides on his way to an impressive 13.

The A Final saw Jack get the better of Chris once again as he landed the NSW crown with the 2012 world champion second – setting up a potentially mouth-watering showdown between two in-form riders ahead of next month’s Australian Championship series.

Pickering, who has signed for Edinburgh in the SGB Championship, was third in the A Final with B Final winner Zach Cook fourth.

Cook’s fourth place should guarantee him a UK visa for 2020. He has been announced as Somerset’s final signing today and will make his British debut in the second tier.

Elsewhere, touring Great Britain international Dan Bewley has been crowned South Australian state champion at Gillman, winning the A Final ahead of Zane Kelleher, Justin Sedgmen and Robert Medson.

The Cumbrian stormed through the heats with 14 points to join Sedgmen and Medson, who both scored 12, in qualifying for the A Final. Kelleher won the B Final to join them.

The result also puts Kelleher and Medson in line for British clubs as a top-four finish in a state or national championship is the standard required for Aussie stars to seek a UK visa.
