CSI5* LGCT Cannes 2017

An A-list line up of showjumping superstars will head to the sparkling destination of Cannes this week as the overall battle for the Longines Global Champions Tour takes the spotlight.

Just a stone's throw from the world-famous La Croisette, the Longines Global Champions Tour and Global Champions League of Cannes event is a remarkable combination of glamour and top-class sport. Held under the effervescent evening lights, the very best horses and riders in the world take centre stage for the sixth round in the 15-leg Tour.

Current ranking leader Lorenzo de Luca (ITA) returns to the series to defend his narrow nine point lead. His nearest rivals, Dutch duo Maikel van der Vleuten (NED) and Harrie Smolders (NED), are snapping at the Italian’s heels and with 40 valuable points up for grabs with a Grand Prix win, both are in touching distance of overturning the current leaderboard.

2016 Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Cannes winner Scott Brash (GBR) will head to the sparkling Riviera destination to fight to keep his name in the lights, as will big names like Ludger Beerbaum (GER), Rolf-Göran Bengtsson (SWE), Christian Ahlmann (GER), Roger-Yves Bost (FRA), Marcus Ehning (GER), Ben Maher (GBR), Simon Delestre (FRA), Gregory Wathelet (BEL), Pénélope Leprevost (FRA), Daniel Deusser (GER) and Kevin Staut (FRA).
