King's Lynn Stars Niels-Kristian Iversen and Robert Lambert experienced mixed fortunes on the track.

Iversen had reason to celebrate after becoming the first rider in 43 years to win five straight Danish Championship crowns after an epic triumph in Holsted.

Iversen saw off Nicki Pederson in the final to win the meeting with 15 points.

Lambert was out of luck as Team Great Britain just missed out on qualification for the World Under-21 Team Cup final on 32 points.

Lambert scored 18 points, including a double-points tactical haul of six.

Hosts Denmark won the semi-final with Australia second.
