Benoit Cernin (FRA) took a home win in Friday's CSI5* 1.55m class at the Hubside Fall Tour in Grimaud, France. Riding the 13-year-old stallion Uitlanders du Ter (Clinton x Hurlevent), with whom he was crowned French Pro Élite Champion in 2019 at Fontainebleau, Cernin took the top honours ahead of some of the world's very best. 

Seven horse-and-rider combinations made it through to the jump-off, where Eduardo Pereira De Menezes (BRA) and H5 Chaganus (Chacco-Blue x Carthago) held the lead with their time of 42.92 seconds until Cernin snatched the victory towards the end of the class when stopping the clock at 42.14 seconds. The podium was completed by Sophie Hinners (GER) on Galanda Mara TH (Lexicon x Animo), with a time of 43.59 seconds in the jump-off.

“Uitlanders arrived in my yard as a 5-year-old and we’ve been competing together for eight years now,” explained the rider from Saône-et-Loire region of France. “He’s a stallion with a huge temperament, which sometimes causes us problems. Here at Hubside we’ve had to change stables several times in the last two weeks because he was breaking everything (laughs). I have to admit that I was a bit lucky in this jump-off, we came rather close to the poles several times... We had a good round, the last line was really technical, as was the treble as n°5 - oxer as n°6, it's a good preparation for the Grand Prix." 

A bit later in the day, Eduardo Pereira De Menezes enjoyed the satisfaction of a win – and even did a double appearance in the top three of the CSI5* 1.50m speed class. Riding two other of his horses, H.Big Action (Action-Breaker x Big Star) and Calypso des Matis (Padock du Plessis*HN x Tresor de Cheux), the Brazilian rider took both the win and the third place. Wilm Vermeir (BEL) and Hotshot (Carembar de Muze x Calido I) squeezed into runner-up position, with 0.23 seconds separating them from the winning time. 

“I can only be pleased,” De Menezes said. “I often come to the Hubside, I was at Valence and truly appreciate the work of the course designer (Cédric Longis). Over his tracks faults can happen anywhere but without putting the horses into difficulty."
