Watch the highlights from Sweden

Monster Energy Yamaha?s Frossard obtained the second overall victory of the season after finishing first in both heats of the Swedish GP. Frossard was hit by Cairoli?s wheel when the Italian crashed in the first corner of the first race, but he managed to keep the second position. The French decided to ride safe behind Bobryshev, but he finally made a move over the Russian with just three laps to go and went out with the victory.

Honda World Motocross? Bobryshev experienced one of the best weekends of his career being on the second step of the podium thanks to his 2-4 result. The Russian was 17th in the opening lap of race two, but he did an incredible race to finish fourth, behind Philippaerts, Cairoli and Frossard. Bobryshev is very confident with his riding and he is looking forward to the next GP, as they are among his favourite ones.

Red Bull Teka KTM Factory Racing MX1?s Cairoli finished third overall in Uddevalla and became the new leader of the MX1 Championship. Cairoli had a tough first race, as made a mistake when braking in the first corner and he had to start from the very last position. The Italian needed some time to check that he was able to go back on his KTM and he then gave it all and succeeded in moving from last to fifth. In the second race Cairoli obtained a solid second position.

LS Honda Racing?s De Dycker was very satisfied with the fourth overall position, because he finally obtained a good result after a long streak of bad luck. De Dycker finished fourth in the first race and he missed the podium because he finished sixth in the second heat. The Belgian rider is now looking forward to Teutschenthal, where he won the GP last year.

Ramon from Rockstar Energy Suzuki World MX1 team completed the top five and moved up one position in the point standings and he is now ninth, 11 points behind eighth classified Boog. Ramon did not have a very good start in the first race and had to push really hard to end in a final sixth position, while he rode fifth almost all the second race.

Boog finished third in the first heat and proved to himself that he can fight for the first positions of the race, but in the second one he did not have a good start and he then struggled to find a good rhythm and crossed the finish line 11th.
Boog was sixth overall, but he improved one position in the Championship and he is now eighth 26 points behind Gon�alves.

Desalle finished seventh overall and he was a bit disappointed because he thought he could have done better. The Belgian rider was not lucky again today, as he injured his knee after a crash during the warm-up. Desalle is now second in the point standings, 10 points behind Cairoli.

Philippaerts finished third in the second race, but he could only be 15th in the first one as he made a mistake and his bike stalled. Philippaerts finished eighth overall, followed by Gon�alves and Nagl, who both made several mistakes today and could not fight for the top positions of the GP.

Kim Lindstr�m was the best Swedish rider in the MX1 class with an overall 23rd position.
