Also the fourth stop of the Global Champions Tour, Shanghai, resulted in quite some good results for Stal Bruynseels. Especially Delux van T&L showed his exceptional qualities once again. In the opening class over a height of 1m50 he effortlessly jumped a clear round and continued to convince the next day. In the first round of the Global Champions League Niels and Delux achieved an 11th place and with that a ticket for the CSI5* GCT Grand Prix later that afternoon. Delux also jumped clear in this Grand Prix and the necessary risk in a quick jump-off, was rewarded with a 6th place.
The next day, the Global Champions League was again scheduled in which Delux again left all the poles in the cup in the first round. Unfortunately, four penalty points were noted in the second round, but thanks to a fast time from both Niels Bruynseels and his teammate Marc Houtzagers, the Prague Lions still managed to achieve a third place.
