After a 24 hour delay it was finally time for the world cup freestyle in Wellington last night. Tinne and Don Auriello was the second last to go and it was clear that “Anton” enjoyed being back in the limelight.

Tinne is really happy after yesterdays ride in Wellington, Florida.
– Anton was amazing to ride and I had a really good feeling yesterday. He was fresh and “on it” and still very ridable. I think it has been good for him to have a break, because I could feel how happy he was when the music started, she says.

They won the American Championships a month ago and was fourth in the world cup finals in Las Vegas last spring. They were fifth in the Freestyle in the WEG 2014

There were four european judges and one american judge judging the Freestyle and you could find other well known European riders in the starting field, both Mikala Gundersen/My Lady and Michael Klimke/Don William II.

Anton will show again in two weeks, when it’s time for the next World Cup qualifier. The plan is that Benetton Dream will show at the same time, in Grand Prix and Grand Prix Special.
