The 2010 speedway grand prix season was the culmination of a dream come true for Swedish rider Linus Sundstrom. The youngster burst onto the scene in 2009, and in 2010, took his performance to the next level, topping it off with a debut in the elite FIM Speedway Grand Prix. Sundstrom even scored a point in his debut.
Sundstrom earned a third place in the British Premier League, and led Sweden to a silver medal in the World Under 21 Team World Cup Final.

"It was awesome. My team and I had a great weekend and we all enjoyed every minute of it. I got to ride different bikes and try new setups and I was very pleased with them all," said Sundstrom. "I consider myself very lucky to have competed with the best riders in the world."

Sundstrom's success this year stretched far beyond his debut at the sports top level. The "Swedish Star" also earned a third place in the British Premier League, and led Sweden to a silver medal in the World Under 21 Team World Cup Final.
Sundstrom attracted the attention of many by improving his league average by more than three points this season.

The event was held at Sundstrom's home track, Rye House. "It was great to take home the silver. Of course, you always want to win, and I wanted a gold, but Poland had won five straight gold's, and they finished with a bronze, so that tells me we did well."

Sundstrom attracted the attention of many by improving his league average by more than three points this season. In general, a one or two point improvement is considered outstanding. But even after getting a taste of the bright lights on the FIM circuit, the 20-year-old isn't rushing to gain a full-time spot on the international tour.

"I might get a chance to be a reserve or wildcard next year. Hopefully they let me run the qualifying series. I want to progress, but I also want to take it slow and make sure I am ready for the pressure and competition of the Grand Prix season," noted Sundstrom. "I am very good on the gates, but I still have a long way to go in regards to thinking on the bike and being one step ahead of the other riders."

After a few off weeks to reflect on his season, Sundstrom thinks it could be the most important year of his entire career. "I am very happy with all of the hard work that my team and I put in. It was great to finally get something in return for the hard work."

"I want to thank K&N Filters for their support this season. My team and I have been very happy with all of their products. In my opinion, you can't find a better filter on the market. I am already looking forward to the 2011 season and it's going to be great to work with K&N Filters in what will be another successful year."
