FRA: 2004 Florac Results

Leonard Liesens

First place went to Issane El Fawsett ridden by Stephanie Arnal, once again a son of the legendary stallion Persik.

A good level of participation this year for the famous race of Florac(France).

An innovative initiative of the organizers : inviting some of the best French and foreigners at their ride, taking at their charge the registration fees and the accommodation and meals for the rider and his crew. 25 riders were invited, including 16 foreigners from Belgium, Denmark, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Switzerland.
This year the date of the race was moved from September to the first Saturday of July to avoid some interference with the Championships that are traditionally held in September.

Once again, the talented Alize de Lap, with Yves Preveiraud was not able to cross the finish line at the first place. Alize was second this year, fourth the year before, 6th in 2002, 2nd in 2000, 3rd in 1999!
