Disappointing start title at the european CHAMPIONSHIPS in Gothenburg
The Dutch title on the first part of the European title in Gothenburg no leading role played. The Orange team is provisional twelfth in the nation leaderboards.
Jur Vrieling was the best Dutch rider in the time-ridden opening round, where each springfout strafseconden caused by VDL Glasgow of Merelsnest on the provisional twentieth place finish. Harrie Smolders is with Don VHP Z provisionally 31st. Both of them threw one of the bars.
Reuben Hull and Marc Houtzager made two springfouten and are even lower in the ranking.
In the nation leaderboards, Switzerland has, as yet, bovenaane, for France and Sweden.
The for your own audience, starting Swede Peder Fredricson leads to remain in the individual standings. The German Marcus Ehning is second. The matches will be Thursday continued.
“It’s just disappointing”, said the Dutch coach Rob I think. “Not a single clear round, with the result that we are thrown back in the standings. The only thing we can do is the following round to perform better. Four times ‘zero’ the drive is what counts.”
Also Vrieling tried the courage to keep. “Now We can only but up to look and ensure that we have a lot of catching up to do. The second day, there are still much to be done. We must ensure that we have no faults.”
The netherlands is both individually as well as in the nations cup defending champions. Two years ago in Aachen, won by Jeroen Dubbeldam with Zenith gold. The combination is now not the party.
Also, Gerco Schröder and Maikel van der Vleuten of the golden team of the time do not participate in Gothenburg. Only Vrieling is still there.
