SWINDON Robins duo of Rohan Tungate and Josh Grajczonek teamed up on Friday night to claim the Premier League Pairs trophy.

The pair, who ride for the Somerset Rebels in the second tier of British speedway, scored 26 points from a possible 28 in their group to book their place in the semi-finals at the Oaktree Arena.

They then overcame Sheffield as Grajczonek came from the back to overtake Simon Stead and former Robin Kyle Howarth, with Tungate leading from the start, whilst the final saw the home side defeat Edinburgh duo Sam Masters and Ryan Fisher.

Somerset boss Garry May said: “Josh and Rohan were just superb, as they have been all season. I think they were probably a bit nervous in their opening ride, but once they got that out of the way, they were almost untouchable.

“Even when Josh was at the back in the semi-final against Sheffield, I just knew that he would find a way past, which he did with an absolutely stunning move.

“In the final itself, once they hit the front as soon as the tapes went up, they were not going to be denied, but even so, it was with a mixture of jubilation and relief when the chequered flag fell at the end of the four laps and we could start celebrating their championship win.”
