Neumunster WC in dressage about to kick off.

 

Intriguing one for me, as all three of my favs (Krinke Susmelj, Oatley, Reynolds) are competing here and can pretty much secure their places at the WC Final. :d

That crowd in Neumunster :bowdown:

 

Oatley and Krinke did really well. :) Reynolds unfortunately had a nightmerish start but managed to recover rather nicely to finish 10th. Just two more qualifying stages left. :fingers:

5th start, 5th WC win for Isabell Werth this season, this time with Emilio. :bowdown: Even before this win in Gothenburg she had a maximum of 80 pts.

 

Meanwhile, the calendar for the Event Rider Masters 2017 has been released. 7 stages in three nations, expansion from the first season which only had events in Great Britain. However, the thing I love about ERM are their broadcasts. High quality, knowledgeable and funny commentators, "nerds" from EquiRatings talking about rider/horse statistics :lol:, interviews with riders/favourites during the competition etc. It's just an awesome presentation of the eventing. :)

Driving WC final in Gothburg kicked off today with some shocking results!

 

Overnight leader is :SUI Voutaz, closely followed by :HUN Dobrovitz. Big favourites, :AUS Exell, :NED de Ronde and :NED Chardon had a bad day. Exell and de Ronde are 3rd and 4th overnight, so still with a chance. Meanwhile, an absolute legend and the defending champion Chardon is way out of it, back in 7th place.

 

Results - time differences will be halved and will be used as starting penalties for tomorrow's decider.

Awesome! I'm intrigued by that very unknown Estonian. :d

Crazy WC in Gothenburg with :SWE von Eckermann taking a win at home. :cheer:

 

However, the most intriguing part was the battle for the final places at the WC final in Omaha! 18 riders that will represent Western Europe are...

 

:FRA Kevin Staut - 78

:ITA Lorenzo de Luca - 67

:IRL Denis Lynch - 64

:SWE Henrik von Eckermann - 59

:GER Ludger Beerbaum - 56

:SUI Steve Guerdat - 47

:GER Guido Klatte - 47

:BEL Gregory Wathelet - 45

:NED Leopold van Asten - 44

:FRA Simon Delestre - 44

:SUI Romain Duguet - 43

:COL Carlos Lopez - 43 - extra athlete

:GER Holger Wulschner - 42

:GER Marcus Ehning - 41

:AUT Max Kuhner - 41

:ESP Sergio Alverez Moya - 40

:BEL Nicola Philippaerts - 39

:FRA Olivier Robert - 39

:GER Markus Brinkmann - 39

----------------------------------------

(reserves)

:NED Maikel van der Vleuten - 38

:SUI Martin Fuchs - 38

:GBR Scott Brash - 35

:BEL Pieter Devos - 35

 

Carlos Lopez is competing for Colombia, which is obviously not in Western Europe. However, since he ranked within the top 18 he gets to go as an extra athlete.

 

I'm not sure if Steve Guerdat is prequalified as the defending champion. If he is indeed prequalified then Maikel van der Vleuten will be invited too.

 

Some really big names failed to qualify, including current World No. 1 :GER Daniel Deusser. Another big German Christian Ahlmann is missing too. Scott Brash once again fails, for the third time in a row...

 

On the other had, some very interesting names are in. Including Guido Klatte, Carlos Lopez, Markus Brinkmann and Olivier Robert. Who would think that Leopold van Asten will be the only Dutch in the final (for now). :yikes: Holger Wulschner meanwhile qualified for his first WC final since 1997!

Cool. :d And yes, it's similar to canoe slalom. If you knock a ball down you get five seconds penalty.

 

Here is an example of a full competition run. :)
