British cyclo-cross champion Helen Wyman continued her run of great form, securing a bronze medal at the European Cyclo-Cross Championships in Frankfurt on Sunday.
Dutch duo Daphny Van Den Brand and Sanne Van Paassen placed first and second to secure gold and silver on the fast course.
Britain's Nikki Harris placed 18th at 2-42 and Gabriella Day 22nd at 3-37.
Last Monday, Wyman won the prestigious Koppenberg cyclo-cross in Belgium, the day after placing second behind Van Den Brand at the Superprestige race in Zonhoven. Wyman previously won a bronze medal at the 2009 Euro champs.
The European Cyclo-Cross Championships will be hosted by Great Britain for the first time in 2012 when the event takes place in Ipswich.
