International success for Britain's top Mountain Bike Orienteering (MTBO) rider, Emily Benham.

The 2013 winner of Wiltshire's sports personality of the year, won all three races in the second round of the World Cup event, held in Skane, Sweden.

Benham dominated all three races, even beating some of the top riders in Scandinavian and Eastern European MTBO riders in their own back yard.

As each race progressed the Salisbury rider grew in confidence, winning the sprint race by three seconds, the middle distance by a huge 61 seconds and the final long distance race by 48 seconds.
