A nice fourth place for the Dutch teamriders in the Furusiyya Nations Cup final

BARCELONA - The Dutch team ended on a nice fourth place in the FEI Furusiyya Nations Cup final. Although the Dutch team ended with the same score as the Irish riders, the time of the Dutch team was unfortunately 1,5 seconds slower.

Maikel van der Vleuten with VDL Groep Verdi has ride a pretty faultless first round in the team competition."Verdi jumped really fantastic and worked hard. I believe we came across the whole route nowhere near a mistake. For me it was technically a difficult trail, especially since there were a lot of problems in the distances between the obstacles. You had to know what you wanted. I knew that and could perform very well today. Thanks to my horse, because you may have a plan, your horse should also work with you and so did Verdi today huge. From the first obstacle to the fourth you could nicely come into your rhythm and after that came the problems, which we fortunately knew how to fix it! "said Maikel.
