“This was his best round to date for me. I wanted to give him a clear run and show the world what he’s capable of. We were 14 seconds down coming out of the Lake, and I just had to press go and off he went. He’s a special athlete.”

Total respect to Chris Burton (AUS) who sits in third and fifth after cross country on his two rides Graf Liberty and Cooley Lands after two superb rides clear inside the time.

Vanir Kamira was a superstar! She literally gave me the perfect ride @bhorsetrials. She finished full of running and seems very bright afterwards so just a tiny bit annoyed with myself for picking up 0.8 time faults! Now in 2nd place after XC so all to play for tomorrow…???? pic.twitter.com/pXaA3NFPdG
