On Saturday Eva Bitter and Perigueux won the German Championship for female riders. Sunday it was time for the German Championship open for both men and women, and it was Daniel Deusser and Cornet d'Amour that ended as the winners!
The Championship couldn't have been more exiting; on Saturday Eva Bitter and Katrin Eckermann met in an unbelievable jump-off for the gold medal and on Sunday it was Daniel Deusser, Carsten-Otto Nagel, Patrick Stühlmeyer and Rolf Moormann that rode for the medals in a jump-off.
Both Eva and Perigueux and Katrin Eckermann on Firth of Lorne were clear in the jump-off, but Eva gave her all and managed to be 1,5 second faster than Katrin. Sarah Nagel-Tornau with Ambassador N.T. won the bronze medal after getting 0,25 time faults in two of the rounds.
On Sunday Rolf Moormann and Acorte (Acorado I x Stakkato) opened off the jump-off, but they got two poles down on their way through the course. Next to go was Daniel Deusser with Cornet d'Amour (Cornet Obolensky x Damiani) and with a clear round in a time of 40,39 seconds he really put some pressure on the next two riders. Patrick Stühlmeyer on Lord Lohengrin (Lordanos x Diskus) couldn't get close to Daniel's time, but was as happy as a winner when he cleared the jump-off.
Last to go was Carsten-Otto Nagel with Corradina (Corrado I x Sandro) and for a while it looked like Carsten would win the gold medal. He had to settle for silver though, as ha crossed the finish line slightly behind Daniel in a time of 40,79 seconds. Marcus Ehning and Cornado NRW, who was clear all the way until the last round, ended fifth.
Take a look at Eva Bitter's last round and unbelievable jump-off with Perigueux!
