Clear blue skies, 22C and flat calm clean water in the River Yihi welcomed the first Practice session this morning. A perfect day today here in Linyi China !  All the Riders have arrived and caught up with sleep after the fantastic Kuching Sarawak World Cup Stop last weekend. Right now the Waterski Jumpers are still arriving and by tomorrow, they too will be ready for World Cup action.

The frantic work around the amazing World Cup site continues and all will be completed before the Official Opening Ceremony scheduled for 10.30hrs tomorrow Friday. We can be quite certain that this will be impressive as here in China great attention is paid to these arrangements. They always set a high standard right from the start. We have our cameras ready !

Today also was TV time ! We finished a series of TV and Newspaper interviews on site and these will continue over the weekend. The Webcast details have not yet been confirmed. We hope to have these for you shortly. As a locally produced upload, we are not sure if it will include our live on-site World Cup commentary or not so lets wait and see.
