The third and last competition of the Longines FEI World Cup Final, takes place at 13.00 CET today.

It will be a table A class with two rounds over a Grand Prix course at 1.50-1.60 meters. The 30 best placed riders following the second competition are allowed to compete in the first round of the third competition, but today only 26 of them have opted to go.

Poland’s Michal Kazmierczak is first out with a total penalty score of 22, while Switzerland’s Steve Guerdat – who leads the Final – will be last out with a zero penalty score. It is very tight within the top ten, and anything can happen. Between Guerdat and Ahlmann (start no. 15 today), there are only two poles down – eight faults – that separate.

The 20 best placed riders (plus ties) from the provisional classification following the first round will be invited back for the second round of the third competition. Riders with a clear score in the first round are also allowed to start in the second round, even if their total score does not bring them into the top 20 riders (plus ties). However, they will compete only for the classification and prize money of the competition itself, and their score in the second round will not be taken into consideration when calculating their position in the overall ranking of the final.

The winner of the Longines FEI World Cup Final 2016 is the rider that after all rounds has the least amount of penalties. If two or more riders should have the same amount of penalties, there will be a jump-off for the victory.
