Antwerpen GP to Skelton and Big Star

Sunday, 29 April 2012

Nick Skelton and the lovely Big Star - here in Madrid last year. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Nick Skelton and Big Star (Quick Star x Nimmerdor) were the winners of the CMB Grand Prix in Antwerp Sunday with two  clear rounds and the time 42.60 in the second round. The British rider was nearly ten seconds faster than number two, Pius Schwizer riding Power Play (by Cassal), at 52.15. Eric Lamaze and Derly Chin de Muze (For Pleasure x Nabab de Reve) had the fastest round at 39.28, but with four faults they had to settle for third place.


The Grand Prix had 46 riders competing for the victory and thirteen riders went on to a second round. The first round had only three clears, Skelton, Schwizer and Lamaze. The course was good, but difficult and it was especially the last line that caused difficulties for many riders.
