Congratulations to Kaely Tomeu, Brett Burlington, Tom Foley and Lacey Gilbertson for winning last night's very exciting team competition. It was the $25,000 Artisan Farms U25 Grand Prix Team Event at the Stadium at WEF with 16 teams competing. It was a Nation's Cup format and it came down to two teams which were tied requiring a jump-off to crown the winner. Under the lights, at a height of 1.45m on grass this was a true test for these riders as they begin to look towards International competitions. In a nail-biting tie-breaker Team Sweet Oak came out on top to with no faults to clinch the tie breaker and with the Gold Medal. Shane Sweetnam was thrilled with the performance "I think its great for them to get the team experience because it's not something they realize how to do it until they do it. It's a different kind of pressure but they all handled it great." Click here to read more ....
