La Baule ready for Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup.
The Nations Cup heads to La Baule, France where the host nation will be taking on Germany, Belgium, Brazil, France, Great Britain, Holland, Switzerland and United States. Seeing as the CSIO5* Lummen leg was cancelled, the stop-off in France will mark the first leg of the European Division 1.
Germany, France and GB go into the event with a host of top riders: Christian Ahlmann, Ludger Beerbaum, Daniel Deusser, Christian Kukuk and Meredith Michaels Beerbaum for Germany, Ben Maher, Michael Whitaker, Joe Clee, Scott Brash and Nick Skelton for GB while France are pinning their hopes on Penelope Leprevost, Simon Delestre, Kevin Staut, Roger Yves Bost and Julien Epaillard.
The impressive Dutch go to France with an experimental line-up: Willem Greve, Johnny Pals, Leopold van Asten, Wout-Jan van der Schans and Jur Vrieling. The starting order will be revealed meanwhile tomorrow afternoon. In the meantime, here is the channel where you can follow it all live: http://www.labaule-cheval.com/direct-live/
