Federico Ciriesi from Italy claimed the three star Grand Prix in Bratislava riding Calida 46 (by Chenook).

Third was America’s Kirsten Coe on Calypso (Orlando x Denver), who had the fastest time of the day but on the expense on a rail down.
In Royan, Giulia Martinengo Marquet made it another Italian win for the weekend in the three star Grand Prix. Guilia rode the lovely Fixdesign Athletica (Achill Libero H x Pit I) to victory, with one of two double clear rounds in the class that counted forty riders.

The Grand Prix in Ommen was also a star studded affair, and saw Marc Houtzager on top with Sterrehof’s Uppity (Guidam x Epilot).
