Once again, since its first year in 2017, this cham­pi­onship is prov­ing the ideal step­ping stone to en­cour­age the fe­male rid­ers into the sport of tri­als at the world cham­pi­onship level. It’s pro­duc­ing a good sen­si­ble level of rid­ing and no doubt the sup­port will grow and grow.

Mak­ing it three wins from three starts we have a new star in the young Ital­ian Alex Bran­cati on the Beta. The part­ing of a sin­gle mark in qual­i­fy­ing pushed her well away from the top spot as Great Bri­tain’s Han­nah Styles had the flags wav­ing, as the crowd en­cour­aged her all the way round the qual­i­fy­ing haz­ards as she edged out Amer­ica’s Mad­die Hoover.

It went from bad to worse though for Bran­cati as she opened the cham­pi­onship com­pe­ti­tion on the sec­ond day of the event with a five on sec­tion one. A five on sec­tion seven, two three-mark penal­ties and a sin­gle mark on sec­tion 14 left her way off the win­ning pace as both even­tual sec­ond- and third-place fin­ish­ers from Ger­many, Rosita Leotta and Sophia Ter Jung, recorded sin­gle scores. Look­ing very de­ter­mined Bran­cati let her rid­ing do the talk­ing on the sec­ond lap to come storm­ing back up the re­sults to post the only sec­ond lap sin­gle-fig­ure score and with this she took the win, much to her clear de­light. The ic­ing on the cake was the world cham­pi­onship ti­tle; she was happy.
