After an absolutely whirlwind of a 2022 season, the penultimate five-star and the final such event in North America looms large this week. A small-but-mighty field for the second Maryland 5 Star features a boatload of Olympians, five-star winners, and WEG riders, making for a true top-flight competition all week long.
We’ve got plenty in store for you as Tilly Berendt and I travel to Maryland this week, with support from Shelby Allen and Abby Powell remotely. You can bookmark this page as your Ultimate Guide to Maryland, including links to all of EN’s coverage and information about the event.
