Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Simon Delestre with Qlassic Bois Margot (L'Arc de Triomphe x Galoubet A) took a popular home win in the Grand Prix Land Rover in Bordeaux after a very close jump-off. Four riders were inside the same second! Marcus Ehning with Plot Blue (Mr. Blue x Pilot) came second ahead of Rolf-Göran Bengtsson and Quintero La Silla (Quantum x Chamonix). Kevin Staut and Silvana HDC (Corland x Widor) secured fourth place.

Course designer Uliano Vezzani had build a course consisting of 13 fences 16 jumps. Also today’s big class had a lot of faults and seven riders chose to retire. But in the end 11 riders still went on to the jump-off where eight of them once again produced clear rounds. The double clears included Maikel van der Vleuten who celebrated his 25th birthday today with a 6th place aboard Kisby (Kaiserwind x Loberg). Congratulations!
