Latvian rider Kristaps Neretnieks won the CSI2*-W Central European league World Cup qualifier in Riga this weekend for the third consecutive year. Neretnieks and eleven year old Zuko S (Odermus R x Kirsten S) were in a league of their own and was the only combination to produce a clear round. Second place went to Russia's Alexander Belekhov on Bivaldi (Cantos x Vivaldie) and third place to Estonian rider Gunnar Klettenberg riding Traffic (Terror x Ballyhara). The Grand Prix was also a qualifier for the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016.
Friday’s CSI2* Prix CWD in Fontainebleau was won by Marc Dilasser (FRA) and Siamoise Minotiere ( Calvaro x Ithuriel). The fourteen best riders went through to a second round with the final score after two rounds and the time from the second round determining the winner. Dilasser and runner-up Piere Cabochette (FRA) were the only riders to produce two clear rounds, but Dilasser was nearly three seconds faster that Cabochette and his ride Aston du Haras des Barrag (Kashmir van Schuttershof x Voltaire). Third place went to Reynald Angot (FRA) and Palawane de Sully (Rosire x Narcos II).
The CSI2* Grand Prix in Coulans was also a French affair with Laurent Faivre and Tonic des Mets (Ogrion des Champs*HN x Damoiseau d’Or) as the winners. Second place went to Jean Luc Mourier and Wisconsin (Sheraton x Jus de Pommes). Florent Giroud ended third with Realite d’Arceliere (Jeff d’Or x Birdy du Gisors).
In Donaueschingen it was Felix Hassmann who took home the 2* Grand Prix and a motorcycle riding Cayenne WZ (Claudio x Ramirado). Simone Blaum secured second place with Flying Boy 20 (Fly High I x Sao Paulo) and Markus Költz was third with Etiche de Fribols ( Fetiche de Pas x Clinton).
