What is Eskilstuna known for?


stage production

Lokomotivet; Eskilstuna, Sweden, September 12, 2003 Genre Progressive metal '''''"BE" (Original Stage Production)''''' is Swedish progressive metal band Pain of Salvation's first live DVD (and second live CD), documenting one of the performances of their 2004 album ''BE (BE (Pain of Salvation album))'' in its entirety in Eskilstuna, Sweden on September 12, 2003.

world title

, although Mark Loram won the 2000 World Championship (2000 Speedway Grand Prix) despite not winning a single event. Rickardsson won one - at Wrocław, but was too inconsistent to win the overall title. However, he again won the Elitserien, this time with his local team Masarna from Avesta, as he and team-mate Leigh Adams were the two highest averaging riders in the entire league. In 2001 (2001 Speedway Grand Prix) he was back on the World stage, winning the World title with a record 121 points from six Grand Prix events, only missing one final - the last, at home on Stockholms Stadion (Stockholms Olympiastadion), which was really academic as only a thirteenth place could possibly have robbed him of the title. He managed to win at home in the next Grand Prix series in 2002 (2002 Speedway Grand Prix),which gave him three individual wins as he won his fifth World Championship. In 2003 (2003 Speedway Grand Prix), he finished third overall. Thirteenth place finishes in Gothenburg, Bydgoszcz and Vikingskipet at Hamar ruining his bid for the title, and a concussion kept him out of the Swedish team (Sweden national speedway team) that won the World Cup (Speedway World Cup) at Vojens (though he was part of a qualifier race and hence stands with a World Cup medal - his only title that year). The following year he managed to win the Swedish Championship at Målilla, but consistency eluded him as Jason Crump pipped him to the World title by three points (although the lead was 17 points before the final race). He followed this up with another extremely strong season in 2005. With 6 First positions at Wrocław (1st Event), Krško (3rd), Millennium Stadium (4th), Idrætsparken (5th) in København, Praha (6th) and Lonigo (9th); a second in the Swedish event at Eskilstuna (2nd); third in the Scandinavian held in Målilla (7th) and a lowly 9th in the Polish Grand Prix held at Bydgoszcz (8th Event). Even with such a poor finish in Poland, however, he had already virtually sown up the Championship in the 7th Grand Prix in Målilla, ahead of Jason Crump. After the sixth event held in the Czech Republic, he was first in the points per event table of the Elitserien (the Swedish Domestic Elite League). Though Tony stated that he would give up racing after the 2006 season, he sadly announced his early retirement from both World Championship and Domestic Speedway on 1 August 2006 at a press conference in Stockholm, in order to pursue his interest in racing cars instead.
