Pius clocks in a win

Friday, 25 February 2011

Pius Schwizer. Photo by Hanne Christensen.It was Pius Schwizer and Carlina (Carvallo x Landgraf I) who landed the victory in Friday’s biggest class in Gothenburg – a 1.50 speed class. The course consisted of 12 fences, and included a huge combination at 10a) and b). Faults were spread evenly out over the course, and 15 out of 44 riders managed to stay clear.

Luciana Diniz took an early lead with a clear round on a fantastic jumping Winningmood, and crossed the finish line on 61.71. Plenty of riders tried to catch Diniz, but it was not until Pius arrived as the second last to go that somebody actually could do something about the time. Pius and Carlina made it all look easy, setting off around the course and clocking in a win with a time of 60.09. The speed-machine Simon Delestre and Napoli Du Ry tried their best, but had to settle for second on 60.71.
