RYE House's Blonde Bombshell bagged a bronze in the Swedish Under-21 Championships.
Silver Ski Rockets teenager Linus Sundstrom enjoyed one of the biggest nights of his young career by claiming third place in his domestic competition.
Up against a tough field that included the likes of Simon Gustafsson, Ludvig Lindgren, Thomas H Jonasson and Billy Forsberg, the 18-year-old raced to three race wins and 11 points in his five programmed rides to qualify for an automatic place in the deciding run-off.
The first attempt at the decider saw Sundstrom brought down by Gustaffson, who was consequently excluded.

Despite suffering nasty bruising in his fall, he bravely emerged for the re-run and came close to catching Dennis Andersson on the line for second place.
The run-off was won by Thomas Jonasson, who has now returned to Edinburgh and will face Sundstrom and the Rockets in the Knock-Out Cup semi-finals in September.
