Exceptional weekend at CSI5* Doha
Last weekend, Niels already noted a good weekend in Doha, when he finished third during the CSI5* Grand Prix of Al Shaqab with Delux vanT&L. But this weekend, Niels went one step further! He already started strongly on Friday, with a second place in the 1m55 class with Frenchy VDS. And on Saturday, Delux van T&L was ready to jump his first round of the weekend. In the second, and tough qualifier of the Longines Global Champions League, Delux van T&L showed his unlimited scope once more, and a controlled clear round earned Niels and Delux a 9th place and thus a qualification for the CSI5* Grand Prix!
And what a Grand Prix ... After a very strong clear round in the basic course, the duo noted a very fast jump-off. In a time of 39.93 seconds, Niels and Delux were the only one to stay clear under 40 seconds and so the victory was a fact!
