Chairman of the KBIS Young Rider selectors, Alex Colquhoun gave us an update of their adventures so far:
“Ok…so we arrived yesterday in the rain which has turned to the most brilliant sunshine. Being next to the sea it is a wonderful place although the team are somewhat bemused to find a nudist beach next door to the Lorry park! There are no major problems although without the team vehicle we would be a little stuck since the stables are a good brisk 25 min walk away. I am feeling very jealous of the Portuguese who have electric scooters.
“A reasonable easy day is expected today although I understand that there is a beach party this evening!”
The team will be decided following tomorrow’s initial trot up – full information regarding the Championships can be found here.
