A balanced, fast, and flawless ride over obstacles but with 2.4 penalty kicks to get past the time. The duo are 13th individually before the jump.
– He didn’t like today. It’s his first championship, but I really think he’s proven to me today that he’s at the highest level. It was very easy to organize today, it used to be that it might be a bit too powerful for me. But I came up with an approach that makes it work very well and with the help of the little helpers can ride the obstacles in the most optimal way. It was great today, says Algutson Ostholt.
