It was not meant to be for Jur Vrieling and VDL Zirocco Blue N.O.P. After the great disappointment in the opening stage of the Nations Cup Jur and VDL Zirocco Blue N.O.P. weren’t able to get back in the game. , the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro didn’t bring us what we hoped for. Jur is obviously very disappointed and told us from Rio: “Never before I went to a championship with so much trust. I have spent many years working towards this with Zirocco. He seemed more than ready for it, and I never expected it to turn out the way it did. If he could only indicate what was bothering him. The day before the game we had trained well, today and he felt good on the forecourt. There seemed to be confidence again. He started well, but unfortunately for us the triple combination came very quickly in the course. We will first have to take a few steps back so we can regain our confidence. Today I still want to support the team as good as possible. My colleagues were amazing. For me, there is disappointment, but the way they are competing they fight for the championship and I wish that they will succeed. "
