Eight riders took to the ring at the CSI5* event in Antwerp last evening for the Accenture JumpingClash Challenge. The four Seeded Riders, all within the Top 10 on the FEI world ranking list, took on the four Challenger Riders in a heated quarter final. But, it was the Challengers who came out on top, all of them winning their first round, securing an all-Challenger semi-final.

The Seeded Riders did not, however, go down without a fight. Canada’s Eric Lamaze missed out on his place in the next round by less than a second to young Belgian rider Constant Van Paesschen and top seeded rider Daniel Deusser looked set for a win going into the last, but the pole falling, gave Patrice Delaveau the win to proceed on in the competition.

The semi-final saw Pedro Veniss and Emanuele Gaudiano go head to head in what was the closest round of the evening with only point four of a second in it, in Gaudiano’s favour. After Veniss took the win against Van Paesschen, the final saw Italy go head to head with France.

Aboard Chalou (Chacco Blue x Baloubet du Rouet) Gaudiano took to the JumpingClash Challenge arena first, and he was certainly setting the pace, quick around every turn he kicked onto the finish, but one fence down added time to the clock and he finished on 33.43 seconds. With the pace set, Delaveau knew he had to come out fighting and aboard Carinjo HDC (Cascavelle x Landgraf I) he did just that. Flying round the course through a master-class round, he took the title with a clear round in 29.25 seconds.

When asked whether he will be taking his horse in the Grand Prix at Antwerp the following day, Delaveau replied “My horse is sixteen years old, after this he will have a little holiday. I brought him to Antwerp especially for the Accenture JumpingClash Challenge.” 

Although pipped to the post, Gaudiano expressed his excitement for the format of Accenture JumpingClash Challenge and what it can do for the sport and told Founder Daniel Entrecanales that he will definitely be back for another claim of the title.
