Riding the 14 year old Codex-daughter Withney van de Dwerse Hagen, the 41 year old rider claimed the top prize of 8000 Euro after producing one of only two double clear rounds. Only 0.23 seconds separated Spits and runner-up Albert Zoer from Holland aboard Wollie Bollie (Cantos x Zuidhorn). Australia’s Amy Gramham was third on Bella Baloubet (Baloubet du Rouet x Landadel) after ending on one time penalty in the first round, a destiny she shared with the next four riders on the result list.

The 1.45 Grand Prix at the CSI2* show in Autheuil, France, saw home rider Jerome Hurel ending on top. Riding the 10 year old KWPN-gelding Warrior (Emilion x Renville), Hurel had the fastest time in the jump-off at 37.72 seconds – and also one of the two double clears of the class. All the riders placed were French, and second best was Eric Navet on 39.11 seconds – and with the only other double clear of the class. Third was Jean Le Monze aboard Outlaw du Carpont (Jivaro du Rouet x Kayack) with four penalties in the jump-off.
