Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum and Fibonacci did a superb round, but with one down and a time penalty they didn't qualify for the second round. All photos (c) Jenny Abrahamsson.
The audience in Aachen don't care much about the weather. The umbrellas work both against the rain - like this year - and against too much sun.
Kent Farrington taking a look at the first riders in the second round.
It was a very focused Andre Thieme that went in for the jump-off with Contanga.
Ben Maher and Diva II didn't had the luck with them in the second round and ended 17th.
The same went for Hans-Dieter Dreher with Embassy II. After a great first round, the second round didn't go as planned and they had to settle for 18th place.
Gregory Wathelet on the other hand did two great rounds with Conrad de Hus. It was only fence number 3 in the second round that stopped the two of them from participating in the jump-off.
Jeroen Dubbeldam and Zenith SFN N.O.P over the last fence in the second round - the same fence that would cause them four faults in the jump-off.
Roger Yves Bost and Qoud'Coeur de la Loge in action.
Pius Schwizer and Caretina de Joter ended 11th in one of their first 1,60 classes together.
Simon Delestre had all reasons to be pleased after three fantastic rounds with the fantastic Ryan des Hayettes.
Another rider that had good reason to be happy was Kent Farrington with Voyeur. The two of them really kept their great form from Hamburg a couple of weeks ago.
Around 45 000 people came to the arena on Sunday.
Everyone would like to get their hands on the Rolex trophy, so it was closely guarded during the class.
