Maikel van der Vleuten (NED) continued his winning ways on Sunday, when topping the star-studded CSI3* 1.50m Grand Prix in Lier with Beauville Z (Bustique x Jumpy des Fontaines). This was the Dutch rider’s third Grand Prix-win within a range of five weeks. 

Out of the 60 starters in the Grand Prix in Lier, eleven qualified for the jump-off where Francois Mathy Jr. (BEL) was the first rider to produce a double clear round riding Uno De La Roque (Numero Uno x Kannan). Mathy Jr. delivered a great jump-off in 41.10 seconds, but didn’t get to keep the lead for long as Marcus Ehning (GER) was next in the ring with Misanto Pret A Tout (Hiram Chambertin Hn x Stew Boy) – pushing the time down to 36.35 seconds. 

Ehning’s round looked impossible to beat, but Pieter Clemens (BEL) with Icarus (Querlybet Hero x Skippy II) shaved off another 0.03 seconds on the leading time. Not even that was fast enough though, as Titouan Schumacher (FRA) with Atome Z (Amadeus Z*Brimbelles x Toulon) managed to bring the time down to 35.28 seconds. 

Jur Vrieling (NED) with Km Chalcedon (Calido I x Raphael) did his best to beat Schumacher, but after crossing the finish line in 38.63 seconds he squeezed in between Ehning and Mathy Jr. 

As last in the ring, it was down to Maikel van der Vleuten and Beauville Z. After two recent Grand Prix victories in Grimaud, van der Vleuten once again proved unbeatable and snatched the victory with a time of 35.24 seconds.
