Norway Trail 2019 – the third NT for us. The team set up is more conservative compared to the preceeding races. Only five yearlings, and two very experienced, nearly nine year old leaders. After two mediocre stages the team gets better from day to day. Fifth in the final ranking. A marvellous success. And once more, Norway Trail has been a phantastic race!
