With glorious sunshine bringing the final round of the exciting BSEC season to a close, it was Husqvarna's visiting rider Matti Seistola that claimed the last victory of the series. With TM's Jordan Rose and Danny McCanney (Gas Gas) having claimed the Elite and Under 23 championships at round nine, it was the KTM duo of Brad Freeman and Richard Ely that secured both the 125 Youth Cup and Expert titles.
Quickly getting to grips with the testing mix of tricky woodland and fast paced motocross, Seistola immediately set the fastest time during opening lap. Steadily improving his pace during the remainder of the day's six special tests, the Finnish rider comfortably topped the standings at the end of round ten.

KTM's Daryl Bolter made his customary fast start to the morning to initially place second at the end of lap one. However, this time he faced a strong challenge from a confident Ryan Voase. With his technical problems from round nine firmly behind him, the Kawasaki rider fought hard with Bolter during the final three laps of the day to claim a well deserved runner up position. With Bolter unable able to match the late charge set by Voase he finished third.
TM's Jordan Rose faced an uphill battle when for the second day in a row a stone jammed up his chain during lap one. Losing over one minute to fix the damage, the newly crowned Elite champion pushed hard to finish in fourth – just four seconds behind Bolter. Newly Honda mounted Lee Edmondson put in one of his best rides of the season to claim fifth.

Gas Gas' Danny McCanney was again the rider to beat in Under 23. Grabbing an early two-second lead over Husaberg's Alex Rockwell on lap one, the Manxman consistently placed ahead of Rockwell throughout the day to claim his sixth and final win of the year. Although putting in a late push during the latter part of the day, Rockwell was unable to reduce McCanney's advantage and had to settle for second. Switching to a TE 310 for round ten, Husqvarna's Jack Rowland dramatically reduced the leading duo's advantage to place a much closer third.

Kawasaki's Joe Wootton remained mistake free during round ten to place as runner up to Holcombe. With the final step of the podium up for grabs, Husqvarna's Robert Johnson pipped KTM's James Dent by one-second to finish third.

Holding off a strong ride by a determined Daniel Beaven (KTM), the KTM rider was declared champion in one of the tightest championship battles this season.
With the Clubman championship already to his credit, TM's Gethin Francombe yet again topped his class at Canada Heights. Trailing Francombe by almost 50 seconds Mark Houson (KTM) finished second with Jason Corden (KTM) rounding out the top three.
