What will it take?

Tuesday, 05 October 2010

The Chef d’Equipe’s for the three best teams yesterday have spoken about what it will take to succeed in todays final.Germany’s Chef d’Equipe Otto Becker said that in order to be the best today, the riders have to stay calm. It is now incredibly close between the teams, and a time-fault is enough to seal a team’s faith tomorrow.

Caio Sergio José de Carvalho - Chef d’Equipe for Brazil – said the following “The riders need to ride clear rounds tomorrow and it’s another day. It is going to be hard to win”. The legendary George Morris, Chef d’Equipe for USA said: “They (the riders) have to concentrate on their plan. They know what they are doing, so they just have to stay focused on the plan and keep their concentration”.

Rodrigo Pessoa from Brazil, who is second individually – was asked about what he thinks about leading rider Khaled Al Eid from Saudi Arabia; “I think everyone saw him in Sydney, and remember him from there. He has an incredible feeling, and with this horse (Presley Boy) he is a serious competitor to go ahead”.

The course-builder Conrad Homfeld said this about yesterday’s and today’s course; “The waterjump can be a heartbreaker, and I don’t really know why. It was bigger than on Monday which can explain some of the problems. But tomorrow it’s not going to be any waterjump, as the fence is going to be replaced with another one. Otherwise the course is going to be the same with just a few small changes”.
