After Switzerland 2017, where Kevin and Nigel Adams, attended and competed in the European Scything Championships for the first time, this year, a party of four went to Austria representing Great Britain and Ireland. The competition is held every two years.
The team comprised of Andy Rickard, Jonathan Adams and Kevin Austin, and was managed by Nigel Adams.
We Flew to Munich and drove over the border into Northern Austria, to St. Florian where the competition took place.
Material to be cut turned out to be quite different than expected, predominantly lucerne with rye grass underneath.
Once again, Austria triumphed as a team, and also the ladies, but the men’s champion came from South Tyrol.
For Team GB, although way down in the placings, great fun was had by all, and valuable experience was gained for future events.
Needing to change our style and technique for the racing setup!
Bring on Slovenia 2021!!
