CCI2* XC at Adelaide

Wendy Schaeffer and Sun Showers

Overnight leader Shane Rose and Virgil have maintained their lead after cross country, with Kevin McNab hot on his heels. Only 0.8 penalties separate the leaders, following their double clear rounds. Sonja Johnson moved up four places with a double clear to jump into third position after XC.

Shane Rose was blazingly fast around the course carving up the 9min 25sec course in just 8min 37sec, that is an astonishing 38 seconds under time, WOW! Time isn’t that easy, plenty of riders are getting penalties, I guess that is just Shane, he maintains a fantastic rhythm all the way around and doesn’t waste a metre. UPDATE: I spoke with Shane and he doesn’t believe his time is correct, he had himself about 10 seconds under the clock
