Christian Ahlmann (GER) has taken the lead of the 2016 Longines Global Champions Tour after the two first legs of the series have concluded. The German rider has collected 68 points so far, and is followed by John Whitaker (GBR) on a total of 60 points. Rank three is Jos Verlooy (BEL) on 56 points, rank four is Sheikh Ali Bin Khalid Al Thani (QAT) on 56 points and rank five Kent Farrington (USA) on 50 points. 

“I’m really happy with my first two shows, Epleaser did a very very good job; one time on the small sand ring the other week, and then on this big grass field. He’s showing everyone how special he is. Especially the first round, it was a real, real proper Grand Prix. For the second time outside in this big ring, it was hard work - I had an unlucky rail in the jump-off, but in general I’m very happy with my horse. I’m really happy with the show, as Jan said it’s organised very well, especially with the public - it’s really a lot of fun for all of us to ride in," Ahlmann said after taking over the lead in Mexico City.
