Rolf and Quintero Ask in action. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.We surely didn't have luck on our side this weekend. Today Quintero Ask and I were clear on the fences in the Grand Prix, but ended with one time fault. It was before and after the combination at number three that I lost the time. Quintero Ask has jumped really good the whole weekend, but in every class there has been something in the way of ending with a great results - a stupid fault in the Longines Global Champions Tour GP and today an annoying time fault.

Maybe I should have made seven strides to the combination instead of eight, and the riders that started later in the class figured that out. That is the disadvantage with going early in a class. I did hope to be one of the twelve that went on to the second round for pretty long, but then at the end of the class there were several clears and I was just outside on thirteen place.

Well, it is just to get home, wait for the next show and for the luck to return!
