Christian Ahlmann and Aragon Z are the best in Den Bosch

Friday, 21 March 2014

Christian Ahlmann and Aragon Z were unbeatable in Den Bosch on Friday. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Friday’s biggest class at the five star event in Den Bosch went to Christian Ahlmann and Aragon Z (Askari x Kolibri). It was a very fast 1.55 class against the clock, were almost half of the start field went clear around the thirteen fence track. Coming in mid-way in the class the German rider took over the command, producing one of his trademark accurate rounds – where it’s all going fast but without looking so. When Christian stopped the clock on 63.58 seconds he had shaved off no less than 2.34 seconds on current leader Simon Delestre’s time.

A few riders later another notoriously fast German rider did his very best to catch Christian, as Hans-Dieter Dreher flew around the track on the beautiful black stallion Embassy II (Escudo I x Silvio I). He was a little bit behind at 64.33 though and slotted into runner-up position. Second last-to-go Marco Kutscher claimed the third place after a great round on Cornet’s Cristallo (Cornet Obolensky x Pilot) with a fast time at 64.63 seconds in this class which – together with tomorrow’s 1.55 classs – also served as a qualifier for Sunday’s Rolex Grand Prix.

The first class of the day was won by Dutch rider Sjaak Sleiderink on W Zarah (Rubert R x Mermus R). It was triple Dutch on top in this 1.40 class, with Ivo Biessen at the smallest of margins behind Sjaak as he was 0.01 seconds slower on Finale (Querlybet Hero x Heartbreaker). Maikel van der Vleuten was third aboard VDL Groep Quatro (Quaprice x Caletto I).
