Of course, Round Four wins matter a great deal, propelling the winners directly past Round Five and into the Quarterfinals, which is worth an extra 1200 points on the Jeep Leaderboard. On Wednesday, Matt Wilkinson, Michel Bourez, Connor O'Leary and Bede Durbidge made some serious headway with crucial wins.
