ANOTHER WIN FOR VALKENSWAARD UNITED
The iconic pairing of Peder Fredricson and Edwina Tops-Alexander kept cool heads under extreme pressure in the dramatic GCL of Rome last weekend to jump into the top spot after delivering flawless clear rounds onboard H&M All In and Fellow Castlefield.
Fredricson powered around the arena making all the inside turns look easy to stop the clock in a blistering time and secure the all-important clear. Edwina opted for a steadier approach; the team tactic paid off, leaving all the jumps up inside the time and forcing the remaining teams to go clear.
Edwina Tops-Alexander said:
“We are back in business. It is amazing to be riding with Peder in the team, and we have a wonderful squad. I did a safe clear round today because I knew he was very fast and slick as always. I played it safe, and I knew we just had to be clear and put more pressure on the riders behind us."
After the 13th stage of the season, Valkenswaard United have now stormed ahead with 277 points giving them 21 point margin on the Shanghai Swans, who sit on 256 points in second. Still in the race, 3 points behind on 253 are the Paris Panthers leaving it all to play for in the doubleheader of Šamorín.
