    And. The support of a psychologist. The German team uses one ever since 2003. And no rider has ever talked about their awful childhood there, I’m sure, just some advice and simple strategies to help...

    Actually, it's ''best of'' at WEG as well, just best three pairs out of four, not best three out of five as in the Olympics. Keeping in mind, how easily a rider fall happens (resulting in elimination...
