Quotes from Geneva

Sunday, 11 December 2011

Doda & AD Drossel Dan enroute to victory in Geneva. Photo by Kit Houghton/FEI.Alvaro Miranda on his jump-off with AD Drossel Dan; “I knew after the double I had to go very tight, and I was lucky there, he rubbed the vertical but it didn’t fall and once he’s touches a fence he gets very careful so I knew I could take all the risks and gallop down to the last few fences!”

Runner-up Rolf Göran Bengtsson; “With so many in the jump-off it gets really fast and everybody was going the fastest they could. We had to take risks everywhere, otherwise you couldn’t beat it, and of course Doda was last - so he could win it!”

Steve Guerdat on his second round: “I lost time between the first and second fences, and then didn’t calculate well at the vertical (after the following double). I lost time there.”

Alvaro Miranda on next year; “This is his last show for the year, he will start again in Basel in January and my main aim with him is the Olympic Games next year so he won’t be doing the World Cups.  I would love to jump him in London - my schedule is to get him to the Olympics in the best possible form.”
