For those curious about Pierre Michelet’s courses, this is a great example of his work. Check out the angled brush combination at fence 5AB, which caused many problems throughout the day. The skinny barrels in the main arena are also classic Pierre, and something similar will likely surface on the WEG course in Normandy.
