The strong Scottish element in both the senior and young rider teams
reflect Scotland's success this year in all the domestic Championship
events, and in taking the BHS Nations Cup at Blair in August at
the Scotshield BHS TREC Championships of Great Britain.
these Championships offer the Young Riders' Team their first taste
of international competition, the senior team represents a blending
of experience with former World Champion David Hay-Thorburn and
the core of the 2001 Silver Medal winning team being joined by some
exciting newcomers eager to test themselves against the World's
I think we have two very able teams this year for the Championships
and we have a good track record in Belgium, having taken the Team
Silver in the World Championships and Young Riders Individual Silver
in Belgium in 2001. Both squads are brimming with confidence and
are keenly looking forward to testing themselves against our TREC
colleagues from other nations. We are also very grateful to Ashby
House for their continued support for our National Teams" said
BHS Head of Competitions and senior Chef d'Equipe, Rob Jones.
