Riders Attend Equestrian Show As WSBK Returns To Spain

As a prelude to the Spanish Round about to get underway, the eni FIM Superbike World Championship paid a visit to one of the most famous institutions of both Jerez de la Frontera and the whole Country of Spain. A selection of riders, including the local stars taking part in the event, have attended a special show performed by the Real Escuela Andaluza del Arte Ecuestre (Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art) called "How the Andalusian Horses Dance".

The Foundation, whose Honorary President is the King of Spain Felipe VI himself, was created to maintain the tradition of the Spanish baroque horsemanship and conserve the stunning abilities of the Andalusian horse.

Jonathan Rea, Davide Giugliano, Marco Melandri, Toni Elias, Alex Lowes, David Salom, Sylvain Barrier and Claudio Corti were joined by WSS riders Nacho Calero, local wildcard Ferran Casas and STK1000 regular Javier Alviz and given ringside seats for a typical Spanish equestrian show that combined a mixture of traditional music with a display that included formation riding, tricks and choreography that saw the horses performing with precision.

After the show the riders posed for photos for the media and the crowd attending the event before returning to the circuit to make their final preparations ahead of tomorrow's on track action which begins with the free practice sessions for all classes.

This weekend will also feature two stars of the world of motorcycle racing, local heroes Carlos Checa and Jorge Lorenzo. 2011 Superbike World Champion Checa, who last year announced his retirement from racing here at Jerez, will be involved in several activities as Ducati ambassador and will also meet the fans on Sunday at the Paddock Show. On the same day, double MotoGP World Champion Lorenzo will take to the track in the Alfa 4C, Official SBK Safety Car, after signing autographs for the fans in the morning again at the Paddock Show.
