It was a very happy Nicola Philippaerts after the jump-off with H&M Forever d Arco Ter Linden.
All smiles from Patrick Stühlmeyer, leaving the arena after the second round.
Philipp Weishaupt taking a look at the first rider of the second round, while Chico is busy posing for the camera.
Pius Schwizer was really pleased with Amira for qualifing for the second round - they ended in 15th position.
Casall Ask looked pretty relaxed between the rounds - busy schratching his head while Rolf was looking at the first competitors.
Yuri Mansur Guerios is not to be missed in his yellow jacket - here riding the 9 year old Cornetto K.
Some riders just had a bad day at work during the Grand Prix. Kaya Lüthi was one of them. A misunderstanding had Pret a Tout jump Kaya out of the saddle and she had to leave the ring by foot.
Heiko Schmidt was another rider that probably would like to start the first round over. It started off good, but then he almost more or less forgot the course twice and in the end he decided to retire.
It looked like a clear round for Daniel Deusser and Cornet d'Amour - but one pole fell at the very end of the course. As he was not among the fastest four faulters he didn't make it to the second round.
Scott Brash and Hello Sanctos have for natural reasons big expectations to them. And not qualifing for the second round is not happening very often.
Bassem Hassan Mohammed, who now is rank eigth on the overall standing, didn't make it to the second round this time. Here Victoria is stretching over one of the oxers at the end of the course.
The expectations for Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum and Fibonacci were high, but they ended the first round with eight faults.
Henrik von Eckermann had to walk Cantinero out after the second round since the two of them parted ways.
