The Championship Ranking Top three now sees two Swedish riders in 1st and 2nd as we head into Round 12 in Lausanne, Switzerland. Rolf-Goran Bengtsson at No1 and Henrik von Eckermann at No2 with Edwina Tops-Alexander (AUS) in No3 on the same points as Eckermann but with less podium finishes, however the chasing pack are gaining momentum while Beerbaum and Brash charge up to within pouncing distance of the leaders. Lausanne, 12-14 September, will see the pressure rise again as the final in Doha approaches fast. Early in the season Brash voiced his intention to defend his LGCT title this year and he seems to be executing his plan of attack perfectly.
