On Friday they won the 1.50m Longines Ranking class, today they topped the Grand Prix: Juan Carlos Garcia (ITA) and Gitano v Berkenbroeck (Nabab de Reve x Ti Amo van het Lambroeck) have showed incredible form at the CSI4* event in Poznan. 

Ten out of the nearly fifty riders went clear in this 1.60m competition counting for the world ranking, moving on to the second round against the clock. It was a very close call, as only 0.02 seconds separated Garcia from runner-up Edwin Smits (SUI) on Rouge Pierville (Ultimo van ter Moude x Narcos II). Thierry Goffinet (BEL) on Artuur JH Z (Andiamo x Baloubet du Rouet) followed close behind the top two, only 0.13 seconds behind the winning time.

Derin Demirsoy (TUR) finished fourth, and Kamil Grzelczyk (POL) was the best of the home riders in fifth.
