This weekend saw the London leg of the prestigious Longines Global Champions Tour, in the magnificent surrounds of Horse Guards Parade. Amongst the main sponsors of the event, Maybourne was at the heart of the action.
A dramatic scene was set for the Maybourne Cup which took place on Thursday. Storm clouds gathered and the tension in the air rose, as 62 of the world’s top riders competed for a place in the jump-off. Finally it came down to a race against the clock for just 21 riders. Setting the pace early on with a trail-blazing time of 31.67s, swiss horseman Beat Mandi with Antares F, set the standard and with each subsequent rider galloping to the finish line in an effort to compete, the crowd was whipped into a frenzy of excitement. The end result was a tight one with the top ten riders all finishing within two seconds of each other, but the stage belonged to Mandli. In second was fellow Swiss Jane Richard Philips with Quister de Fuldenboom with a time of 32.15s and third went to British star Robert Whitaker with Catwalk IV and a time of 32.25s.
For Saturday’s Grand Prix event, British Olympic gold medallist and defending LGCT champion Scott Brash pleased a home crowd by taking first place on the podium. Brash was the one to beat in this leg of the tour and he was not to be shaken, with second place winner Ludger Beerbaum saying that was all he could have hoped for in battle against gold medallist Brash. Thrid place went to the Madrid Grand Prix winners Maikel van der Vleuten and VDL Groep Verdi.
