steve-guerdat-ninoSteve Guerdat: A rider that dares to have a voice. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.At Saturday night's press conference in Lyon, things became slightly heated as Frank Rothenberger was somewhat upset about not being able to adjust the time allowed – while FEI's John Roche went in defence of the rules, and a crystal clear Steve Guerdat spoke his mind. This is what went down yesterday night in a small clash of the titans after 21 riders went clear, by far too many, after the time obviously should have been adjusted so that it became a factor.

presskonfIt was a sad Patrice Delaveau that showed up at the press conference together with Chef d'Equipe Philippe Guerdat. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.One of the leading horses ahead of tomorrow's last part of the Longines FEI World Cup Final - Lacrimoso - will not be able to come to start. At a press conference in Lyon on Sunday, Patrice Dealaveau told the media that Lacrimoso is injured but that it is nothing dramatic. Patrice felt that something was wrong after Saturday's class and when he rode Lacrimoso this morning he was slightly lame.

kentfarrington-voyeurThe winner of the second part of the Longines FEI World Cup Final in Lyon: Kent Farrington and Voyeur. All photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.Kent Farrington and Voyeur (Tolano Van't Riethof x Goodwill) showed no mercy to their competitors in Lyon today, taking the win against no less than 20 other competitors in the jump-off in the second competition of the Longines FEI World Cup Final. With over half of the 38 rider start field moving on to race against the clock, there was no doubt that the second round would be extremely fast – and with no less than six of the riders being from America the US riders stood a good chance of taking the win. And so they did.

daniel-cornet-bloggI had a really good feeling already from the first fence on the warm-up on Cornet. The plan that I had in my mind worked out; I wanted to do a quick round – not too fast, but I ended up as number six which is a nice position to be in and I had a really good feeling on him. Still, he should be fresh enough for Saturday after this first round. I think it was a good day!

pius-quidam-citat"Today was our day," Pius said after his win on Quidam du Vivier. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.The winner Pius Schwizer on his round and the track: "I watched Ludger's round and also Patrice's, and knew I had to be fast. I know Quidam du Vivier is a very quick horse, and also very careful. He has jumped better and better – and today was our day [...] I don't think I have to comment on Frank's track – he has years of experience and knows exactly what he is doing and he knows us all."

pius-quidam-du-vivierPius Schwizer won the first part of the Longines FEI World Cup Final on Quidam de Vivier. All photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.In the first competition of the Longines FEI World Cup Final in Lyon on Friday, Switzerland's Pius Schwizer showed how to do it when he seemingly effortlessly took the win on Quidam de Vivier (Socrate de Chivre x Iris Landai). The victory might have seemed a little unfair from the home crowds' point of view though, as it was very close to a French win for Patrice Delaveau and Lacrimoso HDC (Landjunge x Cascavelle) who in the end had to settle for second.
