01 Jun BEMER Young Riders Tour – Zuidwolde hosts the sixth stop
(Zuidwolde/NED) Here we go again: In Zuidwolde, the BEMER Young Riders Tour has embarked on the next stop in its premiere year and once again offers the chance to collect points with the aim of becoming a participant in the classic BEMER Riders Tour in 2023. The Jumping Tour of the CSIO De Wolden in the Netherlands will host the sixth event on Sunday with the Grand Prix of the BEMER Young Riders Tour.
The U21 generation already showed their “calling card” on the first day of the show in a classic ‘against the clock’ competition (1.45m). 40 participants from 13 nations competed and the 18-year-old Dutch rider Nikita Cheung was delighted with the impeccable round of her Noberlina VD Laarseheide Z in a fast 73.93 seconds. This placed Cheung, who is just starting in the Young Rider age group, in first place. Nikita is competing with three horses in Zuidwolde and will face plenty of competition until Sunday.
Antonio Sottile leads, but for how long?
The current ranking is led by Italy’s Antonio Sottile with 31 points, closely followed by Antoine Ermann from France (28). In Zuidwolde, however, several candidates have great prospects of increasing their points cushion: German show jumper Johanna Beckmann, for example, who won the classification of the BEMER Young Riders Tour in Fontaineblau and is in third place in the ranking with 20 points, as is the Italian rider Chiara Coppo, who previously excelled in Zduchovice and is also competing in Zuidwolde.
