Patrice Delaveau is a returning winner at the Longines Masters events, and the 2015 Paris-edition proved to be no exception when the French rider went to the top in Friday's 1.50 Miasuki Trophy. Riding Lacrimoso *HDC (Landjunge x Cascavelle), Delaveau had one of twenty clear rounds in this class that had 45 riders in the first round all wanting to qualify for Saturday's Gucci Gold Cup.
With such a long list of riders in the jump-off, they all had to be very, very fast to earn a place on the podium. And as usual, Delaveau and Lacrimoso *HDC delivered. Pushed on by the crowds that filled every seat, Patrice risked everything to place himself one and half seconds in front of the German rider Daniel Deusser with Clintop (Clinton x Calvaro Z). Third place went to Italy's Piergiorgio Bucci on Cuarta ( (Canto x Coriano).
"One and a half seconds was perhaps going a little too far. It was risky, but that's sport for you, and I'm just happy to have won here tonight. The Longines Masters are fantastic competitions, among the best in the world. Lacrimoso has already won a Grand Prix having competed in a very fast jump-off the day before. So I hope he'll be in top form on Sunday for the Longines Grand Prix, which is one of my main goals for this season," said Patrice after the win.
