Only one pair managed to put in a better test than Michael Jung and Fischerrocana FST — Marilyn Little and RF Scandalous turned in a personal best to grab the lead with a 24.8, more than 2 points ahead of Jung’s 27.1. Australia’s Christopher Burton and Nobilis 18 are in third with a 27.9.
Little and “Kitty” are an established pair, bringing home two gold medals in the 2015 Pan American Games.
Tune in tomorrow to see how cross country impacts the leaderboard. For the first time in several years, the weather will hold and it will NOT rain! Good news for riders and spectators alike, and the promise of a very competitive day.
