(Sardinia, Italy, October 2, 2013) – When we left the media center last night, the US World Trophy Team was a solid second in the overall standings after two days, sitting some 17 seconds ahead of Australia. However, at last night’s jury meeting, the FIM upheld a protest that said that US team member Thad DuVall turned around on the course, which is a huge no-no, even though it was just for a few feet. What happened was that DuVall was getting ready to leave a check and realized that he forgot his fanny pack and he turned around to get it and the FIM officials saw it. Starting today’s action, France has the lead, with Australia second, and Team USA in third, about 15 seconds behind the Aussies.
