Martin Fuchs had a great day in Treffen today; taking home the 1.55 Championat and the 1.45 class. The 19-year-old Swiss rider won the 1.55 class on Karin Ii Ch, and in the 1.45 it was Lalik who contributed to the honors. The atmosphere was simply exciting at the Glock Horse Performance Center as the top twelve riders in the Championat went on to the second round, during which you could almost hear a pin drop.
Austria's Christian Schranz did an impressive round on his huge chestnut gelding Quartz van de Nieuwmolen to take the lead; jubilation knew no boundaries at this point. But then came Martin Fuchs! The 19-year-old & Karin Ii Ch tightened the turns, galloped – and flew in to a new personal best to win the Championat.
Jürgen Mayer wanted to win, and showed a smooth round with his stallion Roncador 2 who gave everything to the last fence. The pair ended up in second place over two seconds behind Fuchs. Third place went to Austria and Christian Schranz, who showed a great performance today and was celebrated by the audience accordingly.
