The race for the 2018 Longines Global Champions Tour title has shifted up a gear, as the tour makes its dash along the French Riviera to Cannes where four out of the top five in the LGCT ranking will be in action. 

After the red carpet was rolled out in Ramatuelle, Saint Tropez, the tour cruises along to the world-famous destination of Cannes, where an A-list line-up of show jumping stars will be out in force. It’s set to be an edge-of-the-seat weekend of sport, as the best riders in the world will be gunning for points as they fight for supremacy and the coveted LGCT title.

Now back at the helm of the overall rankings, two-time LGCT-champion Edwina Tops-Alexander (AUS) will be looking for another strong podium position to widen her lead from the rest of the pack where she sits on 154 points overall. Breathing down her neck with be Great Britain’s Ben Maher (GBR), just 11 points away on 143 but already with two Grand Prix wins to his name and on flying form. With an unprecedented third title at the forefront of his mind, Scott Brash (GBR) will also head to Cannes - a place where he won the Grand Prix in 2016 and a weekend where he’ll be looking to capitalise on his 131 points.

With a ticket to the GC Play Offs and the prestigious Longines Global Champions Tour Super Grand Prix in Prague this December, the world’s best will be pulling out all the stops for a win in Cannes. Big names such as Ludger Beerbaum (GER), Nicola Philippaerts (BEL), Olivier Philippaerts (BEL), Simon Delestre (FRA), Roger-Yves Bost (FRA), Maikel van der Vleuten (NED), Lorenzo de Luca (ITA), Harrie Smolders (NED), Peder Fredricson (SWE), Christian Ahlmann (GER), Pedro Veniss (BRA), John Whitaker (GBR) and Rolf-Göran Bengtsson (SWE) will all be hoping they can take centre stage.
