The teams for the Global Champions League of Mexico City

GCL Mexico City 2016

The second round of the 2016 Global Champions League team kicks off this Sunday in Mexico City. Riders and horses move from the more compact sand arena in Miami Beach where the Atlantic Ocean and the crowds are up close, to the huge contrast of the expansive Mexico City grass arena which is over 2,250 metres above sea level.

A big audience is expected for the second leg of the GCL after an exhilarating debut in Miami Beach last weekend which saw John Whitaker (GBR) and Bertram Allen (IRE) seize victory for team Valkenswaard United. This Sunday the dynamic duo, representing the older and younger generations of top-level showjumping today, will again unite to capitalise on their early advantage.

Fresh from her LGCT Grand Prix of Miami Beach win last weekend, Edwina Tops-Alexander (AUS) will join Janne-Friederike Meyer (GER) for the Shanghai Swans, who will look to continue their top form and are sure to be a dangerous combination in this round of action. 

The Antwerp Diamonds sit just three points away from the top of the ranking board, and will see the impressive combination of experienced Dutch champion Harrie Smolders (NED) team up with rising star Jos Verlooy (BEL) to try and improve their ranking at this early stage.

The teams announced are as follows:
