Fredricson has made his first race after the World Cup disease
Jumping star Peder Fredrcison is back in competition again after the stomach illness that hampered him during the World Cup finals in Rotterdam. The Swede started two horses when the Global Champions Tour started in Saint Tropez today.
- It's great fun to be up and running again. Now I am healthy again, these last days I have come back and have ridden some day, Fredricson told SVT Sport on Wednesday.
With him to France is the former European gold medalist Crusader Ice and Zacramento. Both horses got the chance in Thursday's 1.45 jump.
Fredrcison looked to make a relatively lung comeback where he did not go too far into the field. A hit on Crusader Ice and a double with Zacramento were the result.
Mathieu Billot, France, won the class.
Evelina Tovek and Henrik von Eckermann are also on site in Saint Tropez, where the highlight of the weekend is the team competition that will be decided on Saturday.
Peder Fredricson, who competes for the Shanghai Swans, was previously unsure if it would be a start for the team. When the start list for tonight's team competition is now published Fredricson's name is not included.
- I'll talk to our team captain (Daniel Deusser) how we get it together. But I may not have got the ultimate upload, Fredricson previously told SVT Sport.
